Yesterday my wife and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe that a year has already come and gone. We both took the day off work and spent most of it eating.
She made a great breakfast: eggs, sausage, OJ, etc. We ate lunch at Judge's BBQ (if you live in Indy, like barbecue, and haven't been to Judge's, you're missing out). Then we gorged ourselves for dinner at Santorini's. The food was great, but we were way too stuffed to eat much of it. We'll be having leftovers tonight, I'm sure.
I've really enjoyed being married so far. I know lots of people who have said that their first year of marriage was the most difficult for them. That makes sense and seems obvious, but I haven't had that experience. We've definitely had some difficult times, but if this is the toughest year, then I can't wait to see what happens in the future. I hope it doesn't mean that the worst is yet to come.
Anyways, I'm just so thankful to have an awesome wife. We spent a few minutes yesterday writing down a few "goals" for the next year. This is something I never would have done in the past and yet another reason why I love my wife. She definitely excels in many areas where I am lacking.
One of my personal goals for the year is to try to make more of an effort to learn a bit more Spanish. She speaks it, and it seems absurd to me that I can't spend a little of my time trying to pick up on it. I'm not trying to be fluent or anything, but having a wife who speaks Spanish is something I could take advantage of. So, in an effort to keep up with this goal, we have vowed to only speak Spanish to each other while in the house together. Our first trial run will last until the Colts game this Saturday.
This morning I couldn't even talk about the crazy dreams I had, because I was having a hard enough time trying to explain that she was stealing all the covers last night. Unfortunately, I think my pantomime skills are advancing more quickly than my Spanish speaking skills. Oh well.
Anyways, I share this so you'll have some idea of how much fun I have and have had over the past year being married. It's a true blessing, I'm very thankful, and I'm excited to see what happens this next year.
