Look at those smiling faces. One year ago today, these two young people walked away from the altar, newly wedded, ready to face the world.

We have faced a lot in the last year. Two big trips, setting up a household, living on a budget, setting goals for the future, pregnancy, miscarriage, fertility issues, surgeries, car repairs, in-laws, and lots of laughter and tears.

I think we have good reason to hope that our marriage in the first year is a good indication of what it will be like in the long haul. We've made it this far unscathed, so I am content. Despite the hardships we've faced this year, I can't imagine a better life. The important thing is that we've faced everything together, and that "together" part will never change.

So, thank you, Erich, for being such a wonderful husband and the man of my dreams!

Lastly, I pondered last year during the two-week wedding hangover, a.k.a. our Hawai'ian honeymoon, whether I would ever post about our wedding. As I discovered with other things, I can't take the pressure of attempting to blog about something for which I have hundreds of pictures on my hard drive in a single post. That is why, now that I'm finally done posting about Hawai'i, I've decided to start a new series called "Wedding Memories," so I can put at least some of the 1500 professional digital pictures on my computer to good use.

Happy Anniversary! What a nice picture. And I know what you mean about having a ton of wedding pics...I "only" have 900 on my computer, but still cannot figure out what to do with them all.

Congrats, Unterkantor! Wish I were back at church to celebrate it with you. I can hardly believe it's been a year! And we sang for your wedding too!
