One big year later

We got engaged after only knowing each other - and I mean from very first laying eyes on each other - for about 10 weeks.

When you think about it, it could've been a very bad situation.

But neither of us wound up being an axe murderer, and actually, as we got to know each other, we found that the things we had initially believed about each other and our characters were absolutely true.

I absolutely adored our wedding. And I feel so lucky that my dad got to see me get married. He loved Nick, and I know it made him feel good to know that I was with someone who loves me for me, completely and absolutely.

Hell, it makes me feel good.

People say the first year is the hardest. And it was, boy was it, but that had nothing to do with our marriage.

Truthfully, I don't know how I would've survived this year without Nick.

I was thinking the other day about how happy I am to be with him, and how I couldn't imagine being married to anyone else.

So I said this. Well, I thought I did.

What I said was, "You know, I can't think of a single other person I'd rather be married to."

Turns out, doesn't exactly have the same effect.

He gave me a look and said, "That's probably for the best, you know."

Well, yah.

I'm so happy to be married to you. Happy anniversary, Nick.


  1. Haha, that made me laugh! And a little jealous!


  2. Happy Anniversary to you both. I maintain that the first year of marriage is the most difficult because the world will conspire against you in some way. I'm glad you've survived it together.

  3. Happy Anniversary! I'm so glad you found each other. :o)

  4. Happy Anniversary! Hard to believe it's been only one year.

    Very best wishes for many many more!

  5. Yay! Happy anniversary!

    I hope the next year is amazing for the two of you!

  6. Congrats!! And here's to many many more!

  7. Hi Lisa,
    after reading a past blog of yours where you mentioned meeting your man on and how you thought the site was good because it did all this personality , likes matching etc, and after many many months of meeting dropkicks and weirdos on other New Zealand sites, I decided to give Match a try. I started corresponding with a guy in the first few days and did for a couple of months before we met, well its been 4 months now and we are co-habitating and getting along like the proverbial house on fire. You should get a commission for advertising :)
    ANyway thanks for recommending the site and congratulations and happy anniversary to you and Nick. I wish for you many many more anniversaries .

  8. Happy Anniversary Lisa and Nick :)

    I wish you both many, many more years of happiness together with that adorable son of yours!

  9. Happy Anniversary!

    And thank you for proving to all of us, that it's never to late to find the love of your life. You showed me I should not give up hope and now I am living with the love of my life as well. Amazing how it only takes a few days for your life to change forever.

  10. Happy anniversary!!! May you have many more years of love, laughs and understanding!

  13. I cannot believe it's already been a year and now there's the little man, too! So many changes for you. Happy anniversary. I'm glad you waited to find that someone special, who gets you and who enjoys your quirks (mostly). He seems like a wonderful partner to share your life with.

  14. Happy Anniversary to both of you. I am sure that there will be so many more.

  15. Yours was a gorgeous wedding. And I am SO glad Nick appreciates you. What a waste it would be otherwise.

    Happy anniversary!


Tell me about it.
