It’s been a year…

Today is my anniversary. The very first one.

There were no flowers or breakfast in bed. There isn’t even a gift on his end (yet) and I used swagbucks to get him a book with the poem that was read at our wedding because I’m broke.

But you know what? That’s okay.

We’re going to have dinner and a movie later, and he’s working as hard as he can on a laptop desk for me for my gift. I’m a homemaker and it bothers me to use money he earned to buy him a gift, so I earned it myself in credits online.

There was no breakfast in bed because our 10 year old screamed over a mouse before 7:00 this morning and woke us up. He had to get up to help her. I had to snuggle our 3 year old so she wouldn’t wake anyone else up. Then there was fighting over the computer and there was a teenager telling me about her awesome dream and… craziness.

Good craziness. This is our life. This is what our marriage is. This is us. I can’t think of any better way to wake up than in the exact environment we signed onto in our marriage. Okay, maybe a hotel with just the two of us would be nice, but we’ll have plenty of years for that.

So happy first anniversary to the most amazing husband and father there is. Even when I’m at my most annoyed, I’d still rather be annoyed with you than lonely without you. I love you.
