one year!

dear jb,

one year?  it is amazing to me that one year ago i married you, my middle school crush.  one year ago before hundreds of our sweet friends and family and to our Lord we vowed to love and cherish each other. we bound our hearts together in a covenant with the Lord.   i am glad for all the things that make up our marriage- even the small piles you leave around the house of your clothes-which momentarily scare me into thinking the rapture has happened and i missed the beam up.  honestly i think if the shoes weren't poking out from under pile it might be less startling-just a suggestion.

anyway, you chose the song for our first dance.  when you first played it to me i sobbed- which i know was such a shock because i only cry all the time.  like the time i cried because i thought the ticket man at the movie theater was probably teased in high school so i started crying and then when we got home you promptly made me take a pregnancy test.  it was negative for baby but positive for crazy.  anyway, we knew this song was wonderful when we danced (and you almost very nearly cried) one year ago today but a year later we understand these words to be true in our marriage.

please dance with me in the minefield a thousand more years...
