Today marks One whole year of being married to my best friend. I know that' a cliche, but I'm not sure why, because if you ask me, you should absolutely marry your best friend.
I see a lot of posts about people's first year of marriage, and one common theme that I always come across is that 'marriage is hard'. Marriage, like any relationship, is never perfect, but I don't think that that means it is hard. Maybe I just got really lucky, but truthfully marriage is the easiest thing I have done.
Adam is the one thing in this world that just makes sense.
He keeps me calm. He keeps me grounded. He encourages me. He inspires me. He makes me laugh more than anyone. He is the most thoughtful man I've ever met. He holds me when I cry. He gives the best advice. He's wise. He's hardworking. And he loves me with everything that he has.
Although our story started 4 years ago when we met playing soccer, I'm going to start from his proposal. Adam placed the order for my ring shortly before I found out that my dog, Lexi, had cancer. He knew that she meant the world to me but knew that she probably wouldn't make it to the actual proposal, so he set up a photoshoot with him and Lexi and the ring "asking" for her permission.

We had a 4 and a half month engagement, and thanks to so many amazing friends and family, we had the most picture perfect wedding day and I still look through the images and can't believe it wasn't all just a dream. Thank you to everyone for all of your help and hard work, and for your encouragement and love throughout this first year <3
Now on to the really good stuff....
