Hello readers! Today is a big day and I just wanted to take some time to move away from renovations and share this milestone with all of you. Today is my first wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe that we have been married a year already. It seems like just yesterday we were meeting and here we are, married and preparing to start a family within the next year, God willing.
This has been one of the best years of my life and also one of the craziest. Margot and I lived together prior to getting married, but it seems things changed when we became husband and wife. The love that we already had grew even more and we settled into domestic bliss even more. Following the wedding, we enjoyed being newlyweds for a few months before we decided to hunt for a house. We wanted to be in the Wales area, as that is where Margot works. However, we quickly learned that we could not afford everything we wanted in a house at a price we could afford. We quickly started to look for fixer-uppers. We could buy a home that needed work at a price we could afford and then turn it into exactly what we wanted. It took a few months, but we did find what we wanted and jumped on it.
Since buying the home, we have been slowly but surely making progress on renovating it. The project should be complete in the next few months, and from there, we hope to start a family.
This weekend, we are putting the renovations to the side and focusing on our relationship. We are going out of town for a quick holiday and just enjoying each others company. I am so excited to not have to worry about work or the home, and to spend time with my beautiful and loving wife. I will have a great weekend and I hope you all do as well.
