Our First Anniversary- It's Been a Whirlwind of a Year!

Thursday, September 27, 2012

One year ago today, I stood on the most beautiful beach in the world and promised my devotion to my best friend.  I can hardly believe it's already been a year, but I have to say it has certainly been the best year of my life.   

John has a pure joy of life.  He is thoughtful, sweet, and caring.  I'm not sure what I did to deserve him; but I know that I am the luckiest girl in the world.  We are happy, we compliment each other so well, and I do believe the best is yet to come.  

Now, for a little dose of reality...

Since our anniversary falls on a Thursday, we decided to cook a nice meal at home tonight, and go out on Saturday.  So, I asked John what he would like for anniversary dinner.  He quickly told me he wanted beef stroganoff, salad, and bread.  Fine.  So, I asked next what he might like for dessert (keeping in mind, of course, that this has to be something I can actually make.)  He quietly suggested "cereal?".  Fine.  Can do.  Just kidding.  Although, at the least, I must say this man knows me well.  Thank goodness he is the lead chef in this family.  I said we complimented each other, and I wasn't kidding!

Happy Anniversary to the man who doesn't mind that I serve cereal for dessert - er,dinner- on occasion.  :)

There's nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon 

Waking to the sunlight, and being cradled by the moon 
Catching fireflies at night 
Building castles in the sand 

Kissing Mama's face goodnight 

Holding Daddy's hand 

Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more 

Running barefoot through the grass 
A little hide and go seek 
Being so in love, that you can hardly eat 
Dancing in the dark, when there's no one else around 
Being bundled 'neath the covers, watching snow 
Fall to the ground 
Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more 

So many things I thought would bring me happiness 
Some dreams that are realities today 
Such an irony the things that mean the most to me 
Are the memories that I've made along the way 

So if there's anything I've learned 
From this journey I am on 
Simple truths will keep you going 
Simple love will keep you strong 
Cause there are questions without answers 
Flames that never die 
Heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise 
So thank you Lord, oh thank you Lord 
How could I ask for more
