Happy One Year Anniversary to Markel & Me! <3

I CANNOT believe it’s been an entire year since we got married in Cypress, CA.  The day was BEYOND stressful, we had a few too many drinks, and we danced our asses off. xo  That day I married my best friend and I’m so incredibly lucky!!  Here are a few (ok more than a few) of our big day! <3


Best Mother’s one girl could ever ask for <3


Our amazing support system.  <3



Here’s to many more years together as best friends, partners, puppy parents, and dare I say…real parents???  I can’t wait to see what the next 60 years bring us!

This last year Markel has been the most incredibly husband: supportive, loving, caring, encouraging and the best advisor anyone could ever have.  He’s full of love, goofiness and incredible faith.  It also doesn’t hurt that he’s both super handsome and cute as a button. <3

My Markel is seriously the light of my life and someone I can’t live without.  We have grown up together.  We met in our early 20s and experienced the best and worst of that journey.  As we enter into our 30s, we have developed a strong foundation of friendship, mutual respect and a sense of humor about ourselves (which I think is crucial).  I know we haven’t hit any of the big highs and lows of life yet, but I feel like after 6 years with this man~~ we’re ready for it.  We’re ready to fight the fight together, laugh through our tough times, eat & drink through the stressful ones, and constantly look to each other & God as we skip & dance through this fun journey called life.

This year has gone by so fast and I’ve really loved every single day of it.  I’m so excited to see where the next 60 years bring us and I laugh to think that…I’ll probably still ask for water when we’re both in bed and the lights are out; tell him I neeeeeeeed mcdonalds fries at midnight; and sneak in shopping bags when he’s not looking; and INSIST that he sit through hours of rom coms & reality shows b/c that’s how we spend QUALITY time together.  MUHAHA  And I’m sure he’ll still shake his head as he fulfills all my silly indulgences and tell me he loves me before going to bed each night. <3
