For those of you who know me, I'm a pretty peppy newlywed.
Tanner and I got married almost a year ago, on January 2nd, 2016.
Boy, was that an amazing day. I woke up slow, got ready admist so many of my friends & family, then we swore forever to each other, surrounded by so many that I grew up with, who believed in us all along.
The night ended with a pizza party bash, and we ran off into the night, together.
The first few months, I had just graduated and was trying to find my place in this world.
He was there for every breakdown, every moment when it was cold outside and I was lost. I learned to love myself, and he was right there, encouraging me. It was incredible.
The snow melted.
The spring + summer came, and there wasn't an afternoon when we weren't swimming, laughing, or adventuring. We camped for the first time, went to California, made real friends, and Tanner started school. We lost our tans in September, and watched every scary movie we could think of.
We went to every haunted house, stayed up late nights talking about everything from school to our future, to television shows. We built our apartment up, filling frames with pictures we love and settled ourselves in.
Tanner supported me so much when I wanted to pursue my dreams of photography and designing, including encouraging me to purchase a camera that I'd coveted for years. He told me every day that he believed in me, even when I didn't believe in myself.
Thanksgiving was incredible with Tanner's family. We went to Temple Square, decorated the Christmas lights, and got In N Out.
The next few weeks are going to be crazy, going from wedding to home to wedding + back, and after 15 days of craziness, we'll be driving up on our anniversary, back to our IdaHOME.
I wanted to put this here, before life gets a little to crazy.
Tanner, I've loved going to the temple with you. I've loved making fun of your TV shows. I love that we can't be mad at each other for more than 5 minutes, where we both explode into "I'm sorrys" and nervous laughs. I love the way you kiss me, the way you hold my hand at every opportunity possible. That you've come to watch girly TV shows with me, that you are by my side no matter what. That you protect me. That I wake up every morning to your kisses and snuggles, how we're always late to work because of it. I love the way you serve others, and your wicked sense of humor.
I have no idea what this year has in store for us, but I can't explain how fully excited I am that I get to start it knowing that you're in it, with me, that we're in this together.
