Yesterday, Surfer Hubs and I snuck down to Corolla, NC, to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. I couldn’t think of a better way to have spent the day. Just the two of us, and our furbabies, in our own little world. Chris fishing. Me reading. Us. Together. It was wonderful.
If I could give just one piece of relationship advice to newlyweds on how to make their their first year of marriage work, it would be to do just this. Spend time together, just the two of you, and shut the rest of the world out as often as possible. I’m not saying to become hermits and never spend time with friends or family, but when it’s just the two of you, let it be just the two of you. Create strong boundaries and you’ll be surprised how easy the rest will be.
And, just for fun, here are a few images from our wedding day, captured by our wonderful photographer and friend, Amanda Hedgepeth.
Happy Anniversary, Hunny!! I hope to celebrate so many, many more wonderful years with you!
