Well, we finally made it. Today is our first anniversary. When they say that the first year of marriage is always the hardest, they were not kidding. I cannot imagine going through this journey with anyone else though.
What a year this has been! Wedding, moving and a baby. I have said that 2011 was definitely my year!
As challenging as our first year together has been, if it meant that I wouldn't get to have the love that I do and the beautiful baby that we were blessed with, I wouldn't change a damn thing. I'd absolutely take the family drama, financial woes and housing issues that we've had over and over again if it meant Josh was still by my side.
Josh really does make me a better person. He honestly makes anyone he is around a better person. I know I don't tell him that nearly enough (if at all). To know that someone as good as Josh agreed to marry my crazy ass is something I will never begin to comprehend. But I'm keeping him!!!
Josh, I love you more than I could ever put on paper. You are the best father and husband I could have ever asked for. You balance me out. You make me want to be a better person. Oliver will always be the luckiest boy in his class because you are his daddy. Here's to many years to come!
