If there is any indication that I have a two month old and am officially back to work, it’s that I’m blogging about our first anniversary nearly a month late! We are maybe finally getting into a routine, but that doesn’t mean that things aren’t as crazy as ever! In fact, when we got back from Colorado, we didn’t even realize our anniversary was just a few days later. Thank goodness for nearby grandparents who are always willing to take Finn!
In any case, our first year of marriage was incredibly crazy. Getting pregnant was not in the plans, but it was a true blessing. However, we did quite a bit other than have a child! Our marriage began with a relaxing and spontaneous roadtrip that we called our “mini-moon”. David and I spent five days exploring New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. I went fly fishing for the first time in Lake Placid and we were able to check a few states off our “traveled to” list.
We celebrated friends’ weddings with them, we took an amazing trip to Belize, we spent time in New York with family, David got a new job and wrapped up another year of school (almost done!). We made new friends, celebrated other’s pregnancies, welcomed a niece to the world, traveled to Colorado, and welcomed our little Finn man.
I can’t say marriage changed much for us since we had been together for a while prior, but it did solidify our family. I can’t wait to see what year two brings for us. A new house! A first birthday party! New Christmas traditions! More snuggles with Juneau! And lots and lots of love and laughter.
We joke that we kind of let life happen to us, rather than planning for life, but that’s just who we are. At the end of the day, good or bad, I’m so blessed to have David as my husband. And like we always say, even in the hardest times, we always make it work!
