It's hard to believe it, but as of today, Gil and I have been married for a whole year. Honestly, it feels like the past 12 months have soared by. I remember thinking in the midst of our house-hunting search that one day, it would feel like our time renting the condo was a tiny blip in our life, and it already does.
This year has had its challenges, but through it all I have never once looked back and regretted giving up my Ottawa life to marry Gil. He has been my rock and my best friend in his own quiet way, and I am so blessed to have him.
We are celebrating quietly since, of course, my husband ended up being on call. I'm hoping we can squeeze in a nice dinner out some time this week, but the most important thing for me is just taking time to remember how we got here and to celebrate the blessing our marriage has been. Of course, it's an added bonus that a few minutes ago, the doorbell rang and I received a delivery of beautiful roses that my husband had ordered. Nice work, Gil!
Edit: We did go out to dinner! Gil emailed me at 7:15pm to say he would be able to get away from work in time for dinner, and had made reservations. We went to a great Italian place and came home to enjoy coffee and a cupcake from the same bakery that supplied our wedding.
Looking forward to many more fabulous years together!
