It's been 1 whole year; 52 weeks or 365 days. No matter how you look at it it's a day to be celebrated. This has been spent laughing, sharing, loving, crying, talking, arguing but never fighting, supporting, disagreeing, trusting, discussing, experiencing, holding, goofing around, relaxing, stressing, moving, planning, changing, growing and much much more. It was a year ago today that I signed a piece of paper and jammed a ring on Mr. K's left finger and said "I do." Confused yet?
Mr. K and I were legally married last year, but had our wedding on May 28th of this year. We did it that way for a couple of reasons. The main reason was because we knew we needed time to plan our wedding, but also wanted to stop having to travel back and forth across the borders to see each other. So, we were married and had the wedding later. I actually would not have done it any other way. At first, I was a bit resistant because I was worried that no one would come to our wedding and wouldn't think it was important because we were already married, but I was wrong. There were a select few who took this attitude, but the people who were guests at our wedding made the celebration what it was. It also made our wedding ceremony even that much more special; there I stood almost eleven months later and I was excited to be married to this man again. What does that tell you?
So much has happened in the last year and considering we're moving to Edinburgh Scotland in less than a month, I'm pretty sure the adventures aren't about to slow down. The best part of it all is that I get to do it with one of my best friends. I think that is the key to our relationship; we became friends quickly and even though there was a definite attraction going on, the time we spent doing things together was just as important as anything else. We're still like that. We just enjoy spending time together. We can both be on our respective computers, doing our thing, but be sitting in the same room and that is enough. Mr. K always says,
"life is too short to have people around that you really don't like," and so I know he's not keeping me around for my fantastic cooking ability. Oh, right-I can't cook.
So it is with one very interesting year under our belts that we move forward into another chapter of our lives and like I said above, I'm glad it can be with you Mr. K. Oh, and Glacier and Roscoe too of course-without those two fuzzy fools, we never would have met. :)
