It's so hard to believe that one year ago today, this happened. I remember how I felt that night like it was yesterday. All the emotions that were running through my veins. It really happened. The moment I had yearned for since the day I met him came and went and I wasn't even allowed to freeze the moment. It all happened so fast and I had this beautiful piece of jewelry sparkling on my left hand to prove it. But more than that, I had the promise of commitment from another human being - someone who was choosing to spend the rest of his life with me.

I thank God every day for sending me someone like this man. Someone who gets me. Someone who believes in me. Someone who makes me laugh. Someone who gives me butterflies over and over again. Someone who pushes me towards my passions when I don't feel I deserve to pursue them.

Don't get me wrong, he/we are by no means perfect but together - as a couple - we just fit. We both share a love for: college football, silly cats, exploring our artistic sides, pool and listening to our favorite music "on 30" just for fun. According to my mom, we're nerds who act like no one else is in the room when we're together. I guess that's what happens when you're still in love. ;)

To my beautiful Steven: thank you for pouring your heart into mine. Thank you for being my best friend and my rock. I'm not sure where I'd be without you but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be this great. Every day you continue to amaze me and I can’t help but think how blessed I am to have you in my life. I know things have been so crazy lately, but I can’t imagine going through this thing called life without you. It’s so amazing how when we’re together, the whole world fades away and we get lost in happiness. That’s what keeps me going. You keep me going. Your face, your heart, your dedication, your commitment, your smile. You are the most beautiful human being I’ve ever met. The thought of us spending the ups and downs of life together gets me excited because I know God chose us for one another and wouldn’t put us through anything he thought we couldn’t handle. Together, we’re strong, and balance each other out. And ultimately, we are happy people. We are a great pair. I am so glad to have the greatest gift on this earth - you. I look forward to the day that I get to call you my husband. xoxo

And just for fun, since I try to include an image with every post, here are a few spreads from a book I designed and bound for him as an anniversary gift in no particular order. The first one makes me laugh because I know it creeps people out. Anyway, he has the book at his casa so I'll be sure to get my hands on it to take pictures to show you someday soon.
