525,600 Minutes

525,600 minutes.
525,000 moments so dear.
525,600 minutes.
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights?
In sunsets?
In midnights?
In cups of coffee.
In inches.
In miles.
In laughter, in strife.

525,600 minutes.
How do you measure a year in the life?

How about love =-)

We sure did. Today is our first anniversary. I can't believe it!!!

We had been dating for 3 years and 4 months when we got married. There were times when I thought we would never get here! Not because our love wasn't strong enough, but because our lives wouldn't support it. We used to joke saying "wedding date in 2008! Or eloping would be fine in 2009..." The wedding didn't come in 2008, but when it did come it was worth the wait. The perfect day in a beautiful park - my dream wedding =-) Today, a year later it is snowing! WHAT??? Crazy weather this year!

We measured our dating years in laughter, love, growth and struggle. I hope that our marriage years include all of the above, and more.

This year was wonderful. Full of so much newness and so much joy. Filled with plenty of struggle, but just as much success. Missing old friends and making new friends. But just like the song says, we will measure it in love. In that sense, it was quite a year =-)

Thank to all of our friends and family who made this year special for us.

And thank you baby, for loving me with a love that is far beyond what I deserve. I love you to the moon and back! And I love being your Mrs. =-)
