will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

this time last year...

...i was unable to imagine that this moment would ever come. it was the day before my wedding, and, unfortunately, i had the typical bride's breakdown. this place looked nothing like it does in this photo. that was a huge debacle, and i was so hysterical that i was actually entertaining the idea that we'd call everyone that night and tell them it was moved to the church. that would have been more of a disaster than...well, anything else i can think of. as it turned out, the day of i was standing in the middle of the yard, putting floating fresh gardenias into beautiful vases filled with water, and thinking, "i'm getting married here. today. today is my wedding day, and i'm getting married here. this is so beautiful." and it was. look at it! those boys in those brown suits and the handsome preacher worked harder than i thought possible to make it like a fairytale. and everyone looked so good. God was there. the one prayer i remember praying the most was, "God, i want people to see You and feel You at this wedding." man, did He come through. i may be biased, but it's my favorite wedding of all time.

landon, there were hardly any words to describe how honored and excited i was to become your wife one year ago tomorrow. and today, after a year has flown past and we've already been through so much, there are fewer words to describe it. i thought my heart was overflowing then...i had no idea. i love you more now than i could've imagined i would on our wedding day. i am proud to be your wife. i can't wait for what our second year holds - the extension of our already incredible family. i love you with all my heart, 'til death do us part.
