What a Wonderful Year

Three weeks ago, my husband Greyson and I celebrated our one year anniversary!!!  It was absolutely wonderful!  We spent the night at a Bed and Breakfast called, The Glenn Haven Inn and went to dinner in Denver at an Irish Pub and Restaurant (thanks to my brother and sister-in-law for the gift card).  Then we finished up the weekend with walking around Estes Park, doing the touristy thing and checking out all the shops.  It was super relaxing and I think we will definitely have to do it again. 

All dressed up on our way to dinner, which was amazing.

All the room doors had spiffy lettering.

Everything was quite enjoyable and laid back, I couldn't ask for a better anniversary get away.  It's crazy how fast a year goes by!  Once in awhile, I joke with Greyson that isn't it nice we don't have to get married every year?  Man what a ton of work that would be to plan a wedding every year!  It's funny how you plan and stress for sooo long and then it all seems to fade away at the moment you look down the aisle at your future spouse.  All of the sudden none of the stress and worrying matters, all you can think about is the love you have for each other and that you are about to start on an amazing journey together. 

 Anyone can tell you that marriage isn't always smiles and roses, but it also is a wonderful thing to share your life with someone you love.  There have been arguments, tears and lost tempers, but what normal relationship wouldn't have that?  It's part of life and the journey you share together and I wouldn't have it any other way.  Not to say  there aren't any wonderful times either, there plenty of those and they should be enjoyed for what they are.  It's the harder moments though that make you stronger and the bondage of marriage stronger as well. 

I have learned some hard lessons in the past 6 years and though they weren't fun, I know it was well worth learning some of those lessons and being able to see how important love and friendship is.  I have found both with Greyson and am soooo happy to be married to him! 

I love you Greyson, thank you for a wonderful year and I look forward to many more!
