Hard to Believe

It's hard for me to fathom that we have been married for a year (well, yesterday was a year). One year ago, I stood in front of God, family and close friends and took my best friend as my husband - what a wonderful day that was!! We have been through a lot in the last year: buying a home, planning a beautiful wedding in a month and a half, moving me from Oklahoma City back to small town America, lovingly laboring over the house and making it home, finding out 4 months in to our marriage that we were expecting a miracle, 2 1/2 weeks in Midland Memorial Hospital with my very ill Dad and ultimately losing him and all the emotional rollercoasters that go with losing someone so close so unexpectedly, PREGNANCY and everything that goes with it, and welcoming our beautiful son. There is no one else on this earth I would rather have had by my side through the good and bad of 2008.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to share a few things I love so much about my husband and being married to him.

~ I love having a son together! It amazes me everyday what a beautiful creature we created!

~ I love watching him take care of Ethan, whatever his need, whatever hour of the day!

~ I love what we have done with our house and I have enjoyed immensely working together to make it ours and make it home.

~ I love how he lets me decorate however I want to (including using turquoise despite his dislike for the color).

~ I love watching him in the kitchen, cooking and taking care of me.

~ I love quiet nights at home with him, hanging out, watching movies, cooking...just being a family.

~ I love taking road trips with him, whether they are short or long journeys and the conversations we have on the road.

~ I love how he comforted me and let me feel every emotion during the loss of my father, as hard as it was on us, me and at times, our marriage.

~ I loved watching his eyes sparkle as he talked about our son during my pregnancy, and now to watch those same eyes look at our son with such love and pride.

~ I love being Mrs. Ronnie Cason - guys like him don't come along every day and I'm thankful he chose me to be his wife!!

~ HIM! With every ounce of my being, and that love grows everyday.

There are so many other things I could list here, but I don't have the time! I'm a very blessed girl and am thankful for my husband and look forward to many years of wedded bliss! I'm going to post a few pictures of our dating days; what a great time in our lives!!
