When Our Powers Combine

Back when hubby and I were dating we would talk about where our relationship was headed in the future by saying “when our powers combine…” We both felt that so many aspects of our lives and our relationship would only improve once we were totally and irrevocably combined.

We were right. This weekend we celebrated our one year anniversary and with our powers combined even in just 12 months we achieved so much. I mean, hello! We bought a house! But more so than that, we are making it a home. We’ve celebrated the little things from first time signing our names as Mr. and Mrs. to our 6 month anniversary.

Our wedding day here in DC was perfect…well it did rain in the morning, and I did want to do something violent to my mother-in-law when she tried to cheer me up by saying, “A wet knot never slips!” But then we wouldn’t have had a rainbow while we were taking pictures after the ceremony!

wedding_rainbowRomance in real life certainly beats any novel.

Now hopefully we will be around to celebrate more anniversaries after eating the top layer of our year old wedding cake that’s been in the freezer all this time. When we went on our honeymoon we forgot to put it in a ziploc bag, so it was just sitting in the freezer, naked it it’s icing for a while.

Hmmm, it tasted fine last night, but I’ll be checking in with hubby throughout the day just in case!
