365 days of...

Marriage.

We've been married for oh, 365 days. 365 days of love, laughter, tears, hugging, shouting, frustration, and change. But most of all there has been love and happiness in out house. The Austin Gardners have survived the first 365 days of legally being man and wife.

Aren't we pretty awesome?

Nothing much has changed, except that there is that whole new level of commitment there. We lived together for  about a year or so before we got hitched, but when you become legally and spiritually bound to someone... wow.

And for those of you had bets out that we wouldn't make it. HA!

Oh and we totally made it a through a year of marriage without procreating. BAM! (And okay, this isn't a bad thing at all, but we made the decision before we got married that we would be careful about things, and wait. And the waiting shall continue.)

It's pretty cool to be married. It's what all the cool kids are doing these days, I totally recommend it... but only if you are in it for the long haul... and can totally stand the smell. Just sayin...

That picture says it all.

But I sure do love that mario kart playing, smelly man.
