Year one

9-10-11 ceremony
{9-10-11 ceremony}

I'm still not used to saying "husband" but I can say that I love being married to this guy.

I meant to get my dress hemmed up so I could wear it on our anniversary. Totally did not happen. Next year?

I have a few wedding related bits floating around in my head, reflections on the process now that we're a year out. Don't worry - nothing too long, and it won't be a photo extravaganza or a mush fest. If I were more organized, I'd have gotten this whole week scheduled and set up. I didn't, so I'll see what happens. For those of you who are done with weddings, tomorrow will be weekend photos, featuring Circe.

Whenever I see a post where people are stressing about social media at their wedding, I think of this photo. I love it.

  2. Happy anniversary to my favorite blogger!

    I will never understand why people are so focused on weddings, and especially why they are so stressed out. I am a married woman (almost 10 years), and I do not like weddings. In fact, my wedding was the simplest wedding ever. Also without any stress! :)

    1. Thank you, Sandra!

      I can't claim ours was stress free! I wish I cared less about weddings, but I love them and there was a fair amount of obsessing. I will say I enjoy weddings even more now because I am so grateful to be done with the planning!

  6. Happy Anniversary. I just found out about your blog accidentally like yesterday and I am very happy I did. It makes me feel a lit less alone about the whole wedding planning DIY thing.

    Thank you :)

  9. ah, dropping the H bomb. it never does feel normal, does it? having one, now - that feels more than normal. it's discovering a superpower that, now that you think about it, you probably always had.

    1. I still default to "partner" most of the time, which feels more familiar.

  11. Wow, I can't believe it's been a year. Saying that time flies seems like an understatement sometimes. Congratulations on a happy first year of marriage. I couldn't be happier for you.

    Ps. You've been missed around these parts this summer :)

  15. I also planned to hem my dress to knee length. Still haven't done it nearly 3 years later. (Oops.)

    Happy 1 year!

  16. Happy anniversary! That went by SO fast! I totally understand the 'husband' thing I have to keep saying it in hopes that it will become second nature, hah!

  17. I can't remember anymore exactly why I was so glued to your blog years ago, but I remember reading it fondly. I know it had something to do with wedding-related things, because I was also preparing to get married. But I bumped into your blog a few moments ago and the greatest smile crept on my face. It was like finding an old friend, and while I've never actually exchanged words with you, I'm glad you're very much still around. Happy few anniversaries I've missed and have a most excellent week.
