WEDDED BLISS | The phrase that is supposed to sum up your first year of marriage. Your first year as Mr & Mrs; a near-constant honeymoon phase, dreamlike - you get the idea.
Not to be a Scrooge, but me and this guy know better than that. While the romance and intense affection sounds nice [not really - it sounds bloody horrendous], the end of our first year of marriage also marks the end of our 7th lap around the sun together. We learnt a long time ago that relationships and now, marriage, are not shadowed by a constant surges of happiness and love for one another. While there are multiple moments where things feel blissful, there are also times where it feels unbearable too. Where the air feels thick and you’re gritting your teeth at one another; times when you love each other, yes, but you don’t necessarily LIKE each other.
But something that we have always had nailed is how to be friends. While we are both hot headed and so our tempers are bound to flare, we have always known how to remain the best of friends. Unrelenting and reliable, literal BFF’s. We have loved each other through the blissful times and the unbearable, we’ve continued to love each other through gritted teeth to regain those effortless smiles and belly laughs. Perhaps this isn’t your typical “happy first wedding anniversary” reflection, but we have never been good at tradition, anyway.
Today, as we paint our house for what feels like the thousandth time, listening to gangster rap and you knowing all the words, there is nowhere I would rather be in life and certainly no one else I would want to be doing it with. Thanks for being the most authentic and loyal and wonderful pain in the neck ever.
Happy first wedding anniversary, my darling but most of all, thanks for the last 7 years of laughs, eye rolls, babies and ass slaps 🧡 #inlovewiththeleggetts •
