happy first anniversary, husbie!
you are my favorite person in the whole wide world. how i got so lucky to snatch you up, i'll never understand. you're the best man i know; you dream big and love deeply. you make me happy every single day, and you still give me butterflies, and you make sure each day is an adventure. i don't have words to convey the kind of pure goodness you embody -- all i have are wishes that it'll someday rub off on me enough to come an inch or two closer to deserving you.
here are some of our best hits from our first year:
hawaii. moving from seattle to denver -- & getting caught in a thunderstorm in the mountains. exploring denver in the summer: golden gate canyon, tattered cover, flat irons, local diners. watching all of lost in a matter of weeks. having to carry bernie on walks downtown because the sidewalk was too hot for her paws. you in pharmacy school, and me starting a wedding portfolio. $4 rockies games. seeing beirut & dancing to our wedding song live. the corn maze. archibald the frenchie. starbucks in the snowstorm on your birthday, and running home 9 blocks laughing & singing christmas carols. making our gratitude wall. going to d bar desserts on my birthday wearing my new coat & sneakily grabbing fliers from cap hill condos & buying scratch cards -- just to try our luck. sending you photo notes. seeing the nutcracker in a new theater. a passerby taking our christmas photos. the melting pot for our 6 year dating anniversary. our first christmas by ourselves. visiting home in january & me freaking out on an airplane. very tacky new year's eve party. taking valentine's photos in the freezing mountains, & the meeting the crazy balloon lady at un-safeway. going to the zoo a lot. buying a fondue pot. spuntino's popsicles. learning that dogs can catch colds. me catching strep & you taking really, really good care of me. creepily driving through the swanky cherry creek neighborhood late at night & staring at all the houses. bon iver in red rocks. daydreaming together about moving to france for a bit. writing bucket lists together.
