10 days.

Our newlywed days are numbered.  The official countdown: 10 days!

How is it possible that our beautiful wedding day was almost one year ago?  The newlywed year has gone so quickly.  We heard rumors that the first year of marriage is the most difficult; we didn't experience that ourselves.  With deaths in our families, serious illness in our families, job worries & more, the first year wasn't all sunshine & roses.  We were fortunate to enjoy more than our fair share of sunny, happy times too.  No matter what, our marriage was strong & true.  It was the wonderful safe haven among the chaos.

I'm sad to see the newlywed year come to an end.  I can't shake the feeling even as we plot a fun first wedding anniversary celebration & I put love into a first wedding anniversary present.  I suppose endings always make me a little teary.  We'll never be newlyweds again- the time was so precious & fleeting.

The end of our newlywed days only leads to the rest of our marriage for which we have many hopes & dreams.  I'm very excited for one particular wish we have for the upcoming year!  I'm just not ready to embrace the next chapter yet.  I'm going to savor our final, blissful newlywed days!!!!

  1. How sweet! You just made me want to rush home to my husband! But I think you can still call yourself a newlywed next year!

  2. This is so sweet-I'm so glad this first year had been so wonderful, and I know all the years after will be, too!

  3. You're right, the first year does go so fast! Here's to many more :)

  4. I feel like you're a newlywed for at least 3 years... ;)

  5. Aw, congratulations! I'm getting married this weekend and most definitely looking forward to my first year of being married :)

  6. Aw, all of you are so sweet! & since you say I can still call myself a newlywed, consider it done :-)
