One Year Down….Many More To Go!

dpp_0441

My husband and I have been together over 8 years. Of those years…2 years were spent in college (well 2 for me 3 for him), 3 years were spent with my husband in law school, 1 year and 5 months were spent planning our wedding, and now this Sunday, June 14th we have reached the ONE YEAR MARK of our marriage! I have no idea where the time went but I can tell you that this year has been amazing!

My husband has been my best friend since we began our relationship. We were friends first and I think that makes all the difference. Over the years we have had our ups and our downs, but through it all I have always known that he was the man I wanted to marry. The story of how we met isn’t a romantic one, or one that we were able to share on our wedding website. I had to tone it down a bit since it certainly wasn’t appropriate for the site. But I figure since this is my blog, that I can be open and honest…so here goes…As  I have mentioned we met in college. He was in a fraternity and I was in a sorority. We were introduced by friends at a bar. We said our hello’s and I proceeded to tap the top of his beer bottle. (If you don’t know what that does, if you tap one bottle on top of another bottle that is over half way full with beer the beer starts to foam and spill out over the top making the person holding that beer chug it so it doesn’t get all over them) In doing so, he had to chug his beer, and this added to a night of drinking made him have to leave the bar and get sick. Romantic I know! But at least I made my mark as someone he’d remember. Ahhh the memories.

Here’s some pictures of us in college:

Now we are all grown up! (ya right!) and much more mature, but these pictures remind me of the wonderful history my husband and I share. We’ve been able to experience so many firsts together, and it’s comforting to know that we have so many more firsts to come.

This coming weekend we decided to celebrate our anniversary in Newport Rhode Island at the Adele Turner Inn. It’s a bed and breakfast. I will be sure to post more on that next week when we return. I am looking forward to getting away for a nice romantic weekend with my man. We certainly deserve it!

I asked my dad if he would throw me another wedding this weekend so I could put on my dress and try to match our most wonderful day, but unfortunately he said NO! I guess we will have to make due  watching our wedding video on Sunday. It’s a perfect time to reminisce. So for anyone who is interested here is a great dance  montage video our videographer put together of our wedding. Watching it makes me smile!

  1. Wow a whole year already?! Where does the time go?

    I love that video. I’ve watched it more than a few times and it never gets old. You two look so cute as college kids! I love it.

    Have fun this weekend.

    Before you know it 10 years will have gone, then 20 and then some day 50!

    • Thanks Sol! That video makes me laugh. we have another one that is a music video to our wedding song that shows the whole day but I can’t get it up! Maybe later! Looking forward to the weekend!

  2. Happy Anniversary!!!! I hope you enjoy your weekend away with your hubby!!!

    I think your story of meeting is cute of course i am partial to the bar scene….. i met my hubby in a bar too :)

    Have a great weekend!!!

  3. Awww how cool! My hubby and I met when I was pledging my sorority. I have photo after photo of us at parties that are very similar to yours. I have many drunken stories I could tell about our courtship….definitely not appropriate for our wedding Web site either! lol

  4. Happy SITS Day! You guys are an adorable couple! Love the beer story. In essence, you made me vomit. It was your destiny to be together!

  5. HIM vomit. You did not make me vomit. I was distracted by my dogs. That would have been very mean of me, if I’d said your post made me vomit. Him. Yeah.

  6. Wow, your wedding looks like an awesome party! I’m planning mine now and I’m hoping ours is half that fun. Good times!

  7. WOW, you are so lucky and so is your husband. I couldn’t pull up the video but I’m sure your wedding was a blast.

    Happy SITS Day!!

  8. I think you are right that being best friends before getting married makes a big difference!

    Happy SITS Day!

    Cheers :-)
