One Year.

And just like that, 365 days have passed since our wedding.

 In our first year together as Mr. and Mrs. we've done and seen a lot. 

We honeymooned to Hawaii in July 

We celebrated Joel's 26th Birthday in August

 We took a weekend trip with my family to Scottsdale in August

 We saw our friends have their first baby Max in September
We saw Zac Brown Band in October  
We spent Thanksgiving at home in Chicago 

We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas with just us. 

 In January, Joel ran an ultra marathon as his parents, brother, and I cheered him on

 In February, my mom and Kuka came to visit

In March we celebrated 7 years of togetherness & I started a new job

In April we met Tucker.
In May, we found out we will be an Aunt and Uncle (again)

In June, we traveled to France

And in all those days in between we've laughed, cried, screamed, talked, walked, and figured out how to be married. We weathered really good days and some really bad ones too, but we made it, and we did it all together. Joel is my best friend in the entire world, and there is no one I would rather spend all of the highs, lows, and in-betweens with....now and forever.
