One year down... Forever to go.
Collin and I got married on this day, one year ago.
It was a beautiful day, much like today.
We chose to have a simple ceremony with just family and a couple friends.
Up the canyon, with white flowers and white balloons.
BBQ food and kneaders deserts.
Bob Marley music and love in the air.
It was all we needed- Besides each other.
We exchanged bands that had the words "Love is all you need" engraved into Collins and "All you need is love" engraved into mine. I adored my ring, it was simple and sweet. But I lost it a couple months ago so I've been wearing a temporary one. I've never wanted a real diamond. I couldn't imagine loosing it or wearing something that has that much worth. So I've been waiting to find something that suits me.
A turquoise ring maybe?
A purple stone?
Saphire since its my birth stone?
I wanted a ring that was simple, inexpensive, but still looked like a wedding ring.
So... For our one year, Collin so sweetly gave me this.
Its absolutely perfect. Its a citrine stone which is a darker yellow on a simple yellow-gold band.
I am in love with it. Everything about it.
A couple of weeks before we found out I was pregnant, Collin had a dream about the movie Wall-E (if you haven't seen the movie, watch it! It will melt your heart)
He was Wall-E and I was Eva (his love interest). We were in a factory, him on one side of the assembly line and me on the other. We were putting together parts to make... a baby! A robot baby to be exact. So finding out I was pregnant just a couple weeks later was really cool. Its been that cute "remember that?" story we think about every now and then.
So for our anniversary I had my friend (who is an amazing/talented artist!) draw this picture for Collin.
Kinda perfect isn't it? I love baby Jude robot.
I cant wait to frame and hang it in our home.
Collin, a very happy one year anniversary to you. It has been filled with lots of joy and lots of love. I cant wait for the many, many more to come!
Your the greatest husband, father and best friend I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Im so glad I get to call you mine. Love- Me.
