| One Year Anniversary |
| All giddy during our first look |
This past Sunday, Zach and I celebrated our O N E year wedding anniversary. Not only have we made it through a year of marriage, but we have also made it through a year of living in NYC as newly weds. They say that if you make it through either of those things separately, you can make it through anything. I guess that means we are extra prepared to conquer whatever life throws at us (but I already knew that as long as I have my loving husband by my side). To be honest, instead of this year being the hardest, I actually thought it was the most fun. This year was about focusing on our relationship and growing as one. It was about savoring the simple things – our Sunday night walks, adding new broadway playbills to our growing collection, and watching old school Batman cartoons on the couch while eating popsicles. It’s been fun to see both of us take on this new role as husband and wife. We have grown so much in the last year and continue to teach each other how to love fearlessly and support one another through good times and bad. I could never repay Zach for how much joy and light that he brings in to my life…but I look forward to trying for many more years to come! I thought it would be fun to share a small glimpse into our first year of marriage with a few questions we both answered separately. Enjoy :)
One year ago today I moved to this city and I never looked back.
Ever since I was young, I remember dreaming of such a moment, but I never truly believed that it would come true for me. I’m not quite sure when I decided to not let my dreams just be dreams. I have a feeling it was somewhere in between Zach getting a call from The Today Show while we were eating at Buffalo Wild Wings one day and the moment where I stood with tears streaming down my face as I lugged two large suitcases on a one-way plane ride to NYC. When I look back on it, I guess I never really went out and chased my dreams…I was kind of just pushed in to them after life got sick of me staying in my comfort zone for too long.
February. The month of love.
It’s always funny to me to see what this specific month seems to do to people. It creates such a huge divide between the ones who choose to celebrate love and the ones who get all down-in-the-dumps because they don’t think that they have it. Well I am here to bring you some good news – we all have love – and that’s something worth celebrating.
Christmas in New York.
Oh, how sweet that sounds. I have been counting down the days for December to hit so it would be socially acceptable to start getting in to the holiday spirit. I have never been in the Big Apple during the holidays, but I already know that I’m going to love it. The city is buzzing with joy and almost every street corner is covered in twinkling lights and holiday decor! Where ever I go, I literally feel like I’m walking through a Lifetime Holiday movie set.
Another weekend has come and gone in the blink of an eye.
Though I feel that these weekends never seem to be long enough, it excites me to know that the faster they go, the sooner the day will come that I get to marry the love of my life. We keep on telling ourselves that “this weekend is going to be a lazy weekend” but somehow we always find new adventures to fill up our time. This time our adventurous hearts took us to Coney Island.
