"Five hundred, twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes...how do you measure a year?"
Pete and I celebrated our one year anniversary yesterday, along with the anniversary of our country's Independence! And it was a lovely day- the fun Oakyln Township parade, BBQ yumminess, and the gorgeous fireworks display we watched from our now-traditional perch out front of my mother- and father-in-laws house! It was a slow, relaxing day, and it made me happy that we had our wedding on the 4th- we will have a celebratory anniversary every year!
On day 364 of our first year, we went out for a late dinner at Redstone (oh,my God, sooooooooo good! The fondue is my favorite!). The conversation had a serious tone- even though we are so blessed to have each other, we know what this past year has been. I like to call it "weird", Pete just calls it "shitty"! But now that we are on Day 1 of Year Two, I am just happy that we made it through together.
It's not always easy. It's never going to be "always easy". But we have each other to get through the hard times and enjoy every second of the amazing times. We made it through 365 days of a tough year, and now, we are only one day into the next 365. And oh, these next ones hold so much for us!
