married · one year

{one year anniversary · st. louis, mo}

We've been married a whole year!

I guess technically a year and 18 days since this post is a little overdue... But it's been a wonderful year. It seemed fitting that we were in St. Louis over our anniversary weekend - we went there after our wedding last year! We had a great time with our friends, but we snuck out on our anniversary to have breakfast alone.

{I finally got the crepes I have been craving for months!}

I love my bearded guy. He's pretty awesome. I'm constantly thinking about him and still get flutters when a mid-day text comes in.

I'm not sure we've learned anything new about each other over the past year - it has been eight years total - but we've learned how to be homeowners together. It's not always fun or glamorous. And I think you can say the same thing about marriage!

I always laugh when people ask me how married life is - for us it's exactly the same as it was before! And I think that's a very good thing.

I still attribute our strong relationship to our communication and independence {both as a couple and individually}.

Some people stare in amazement when Steven tells them that I 'let him' do his own thing. We do lots of things together, but we don't control each other's lives, so why shouldn't we each be allowed to do what we want to do? We have freedom, but usually choose to do things together. We enjoy each other's company. But we don't get hurt feelings if we opt to do things without the other.

Relationships are a lot of give and take. You just have to balance the two.

xoxo, christa
