1 Year

Kevin and I celebrate our one year anniversary this weekend.

This past year he has carried me through more tear-filled nights and panic moments then seem fair, and he does it so gracefully. If ever I felt unloved in my life, he has cured that entirely. He does not expect love to be reciprocated exactly - - it is not symmetry to him. It is altruistic. It is guileless.

The thing about being married to Kevin is that I don't just love him more after being married to him for a year now. His example of compassion and kindness has given me the ability to love everyone I know and meet with more love than I ever had before.

He has made my life more than I could have ever made of it alone, because he truly believes I can do anything I want to do in this world. His love is empowering.

Happy Anniversary Kev. The best thing I ever did was marry you.

Congratulations to you and Kevin :] I bet that the past year was a great adventure, and I hope that you have many more to come. It's funny how one person can just change you to be a better person huh?
