A year ago today I married my best friend in his hometown in the Bahamas. Every day since we said “I do” has been part of an unforgettable journey, and it keeps getting more amazing every day.
The words above are the vows that we gave to each other during our ceremony. They are every bit as powerful as they were when we promised them to each other at our wedding. Our lives are intertwined, our hearts are one, and we walk hand-in-hand through this adventure of life.
It is an incredible thing to experience love that is unconditional, unwavering, and which sinks into the very core of your soul. It is a feeling of being at home and it is knowing that you are safe no matter what happens in life. It is trust, acceptance, and appreciation.
As we enter the next journey of our life, parenthood, I rest easy knowing that my husband will be there to hold my hand and walk with me through the ups and downs of being a new parent. We will live, learn, and love together as we make mistakes and celebrate together when we accomplish small victories in the first few months of being new parents. We cannot wait to give our daughter as much unconditional and unwavering love as we give each other.
The last year has been a whirlwind of an adventure, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this next year!
