Today marks a year of marriage to the man of my dreams. And my, what a crazy year it has been. What is even crazier is that I am married to the handsome little boy I was smitten by in Junior High. I am so lucky to be the one he chose to spend the rest of his life with. He has always been there for me, through the good times and bad, even when 2000 miles were put between us for 4 years. He has remained my best friend, and now he is my lover, my soul mate and my baby daddy. He has believed in me when I couldn’t, fought for me when I was unloveable, and reached down into my soul and pulled out the joyful Hannah that had been missing for so long. He makes me laugh like no one else ever has. He is the sweetest, kindest, compassionate man I know. We’ve been through a lot together, and overcome many obstacles our whole relationship. And we’ve watched the Lord grow us into the people we are today. As I sit her and remember the morning of my wedding day, the gitters and the peace I felt, I had never been more certain about anything in my whole life. This man challenges me, loves me, and motivates me every day. He provides, protects, and pursues me. I have found the one my soul loves, and I’ve never felt more loved in return.
I am probably biased but our wedding day was the most beautiful day in the whole world. The weather was perfect, and God showed up in every detail. We have such incredible loved ones in our corner, and part of our prayer warriors. We have spent 6 months together, and exactly 6 months apart. But how lucky am I to be married to a man who makes me feel like every kiss is the first and every day is a honeymoon. And now we have the most perfect daughter who symbolize beauty in the face of adversity. She has made me a stronger person. She is a picture of her daddy and his strength. They are both fighters. Conquerers. Together as a family we are unstoppable. It has been a crazy year, but I can’t wait to see what this year brings. And I can’t wait to have my hubby home to celebrate and start our lives together again. I miss him so much. I never imagined I’d be spending my first wedding anniversary missing my husband, but then again I never imagined how perfect this life would be. Brian, you make all this worth it. I love you baby. Come home to me.
