one year

 

Two years ago today, Christian got down on one knee and asked if I would spend the rest of my days with him. And one year ago today, we said our vows in a little brick church in New Albany, Mississippi surrounded by the people we love most in the world. We vowed to be loving and faithful in plenty and in want, in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.

It was the most beautiful day, but it was only the beginning. Life with Christian has been nothing short of a gift. There have been days when I have taken that gift for granted, begrudged it, and mistreated it. But marriage to this man has been the most glorious, wonderful, delightful, and thrilling adventure I have ever embarked on. Christian has shown me, day in and day out, what it means for Christ to love, cherish, and delight in His Bride.
Here’s to 100 more years by his side.

P.S. this date was royal before Meghan and Harry.
