The long awaited weekend has passed and we are pressing on! My husband and I made it through a series of obstacles during our first year of marriage, some exciting and some disheartening, but all victorious once we gave it to God. Following a divine plan is pure adventure. Now, we take on year two with new wisdom and open hearts.
To friends and family, my life since finding my husband is nothing shy of miraculous. I wouldn’t be surprised if most didn’t believe our story. For the sake of preserving future novel material, I’ll share the CliffsNotes version…
On to the celebration! I had been plotting this evening of surprises which, go figure, didn’t exactly go my way. The whole idea was to be home before him with time to plant a scavenger-hunt of surprises and gifts. The trail of instructions ended in the rented theater, decorated with trinkets of our wedding day and a video of special memories and messages. After exchanging sentiments, we celebrated the long weekend with activities and lounging. Here are some photos I took of the weekend using his gift to me, a Nikon 3200!
