Wedding Anniversary, Year 1

I’ve been married to Paul for one year today. Here’s the recap of our ceremony. It was small and wonderful and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Three years ago, when we’d been together for a year, I wrote about how we met. I still enjoy the story.

Since we became a couple in November 2010, we’ve moved in together (Nov 2011), got engaged (Jan 2013), moved to Buffalo (July 2013), got married (December 2013), and bought a house (Nov 2014). Not too shabby! We’ve both changed jobs several times, too, so we don’t go long without some sort of upheaval in our lives.

Happy first wedding anniversary, Paul. I love you.

Here’s a selection of photos from the past four years:
