Here’s a little What I Love Wednesdays from Melissa, just days past their year anniversary! Happy Anniversary Melissa & Wyatt! Thanks for sharing a little bit of what you love with us today.
My husband, Wyatt, (lovingly known as “Hubs” on my blog) and I have been married for just over 1 year now, and I can’t believe how fast the time has gone! It seems like just a few weeks ago that we were so impatient we could hardly wait for our wedding day to get here! And it seems only a few years ago that we had our first “date” on a group trip to Worlds of Fun when I was just 15 years old.
I often take laughter for granted. As we’ve grown up throughout this past year and faced more real struggles and less silly times of just hanging out with friends, I’ve realized that I need to cherish the moments we have that are just dedicated to being silly and happy and in love with each other. No worries, no grumbles, no stresses, no busy schedules or homesickness, or any of that stuff that can sometimes steal our joy. The fact that we have each other is enough, and I love how spending a few moments being ridiculous together reminds me just how happy this man I married makes me, no matter what we’re facing together.
Whether it’s a joke, funny memory, crazy situation, or just the simple way we know exactly where the other is most ticklish, laughing with Wyatt is one of the simple joys in life that I hope to never have to live without.
And I hate to be biased, but Hubs has the best laugh and smile of anyone I know. He uses his whole being to express his joy, and I love the way his eyes light up with a spark as his whole face transforms into his giant smile. It’s truly my favorite sight to see.
On July 9, 2011, I truly did marry my best friend, and I’m so blessed to be able to spend the rest of my life with him, laughing together as we create our own happily ever after, one moment at a time.
