Our DIY wedding and reception were a blast. But the year since has been the real thing. The wedding is one day, the marriage is forever. It's no secret that, apart from getting hitched, I had a personally rough summer 2012 - summer 2013. Moving, a hurricane, moving, lacking work, visa stuff, moving, still lacking work - it's been a challenge. I try to not get too much into the rough stuff here on the blog, but I wanted to make a point today to thank my most amazing husband, Alan (aka: The Scot), for helping me get through it all. (I know he always peeks at my blog posts).
The traditional first anniversary gift is paper. While I've got something paper-based as a big gift, this is a little gift for my husband that I also thought would be fun to share here on the blog. We have a tradition of taking silly self-portraits (this happened far more in the past year than is shown on this video) and I love that we have many of them to document places and events and such. It makes me smile.
The music was our first dance and was a surprise for/gift to The Scot on our wedding day. The mixing isn't perfect and the recording isn't pristine, but that doesn't bother me. It still made me happy to give.
Here's to getting as many more anniversaries as we can squeak out of this life!
