One Year

Things I've learned in my first year of marriage
1. Being careful DOESN'T work
2. Yes, it does matter which way you put the toilet paper on the holder
3. Staying up way, way, way too late once every now and then won't kill you
4. Going to bed early and talking for an hour is something that should be done often
5. It's okay to leave dishes in the sink overnight
6. Homemade food does include hamburger helper
7. Walks are amazing
8. Be flexible and patient
9. Just because you like to do something one way, it doesn't mean it's the right or the best way
10. Cherry 7-Up fixes everything
11. Skipping homework one time is okay
12. A B- is still a good grade
13. Husbands are sometimes better cooks
14. We all do dumb things: forgive, forget, and move on
15. Being silly is a lot of fun
16. Communication is vital
17. Plans will change
18. In-laws can be pretty cool
19. It is good to have family close, but having your own space is important
20. I will never be as good as him at Settlers of Catan or Speed Scrable
21. Always say I love you

Jared and I celebrated our one year anniversary last Monday and it's crazy how much you learn and change in one year. Your whole life you look forward to growing up and getting older and I can understand why. Life just gets better! Even when things arn't that great, it is so nice to have someone to turn to and share everything with. I have loved being able to share everything with my best friend.

Both of us are so excited for the baby girl. The closer it gets, the more nervous we get. She'll be here in 5 days! It is crazy how time flies. It is nice to know that me and him are in this together!

Anyways, I hope everyone is having a great week and if ya'll can think of any cute girl names, let us know! We're running out of time!
