Where was I the morning of the royal wedding? Conveniently taping it on the DVR instead of waking up at the crack of dawn to watch, that's where. I know, I know. It'll be one of those moments where you remember where you were for the rest of your life. I'm a pop-culture slacker. Apparently, I'll just have to stick to knowing where I was when Princess Diana and JFK Jr. died or when I heard the news that Mariah Carey gave her son the stupidest name ever.
Don't worry... there was plenty of online coverage, those 6 hours of DVR footage, plus countless "Fashion Police" moments. I don't *think* I missed anything. And I suppose one day, my unconceived daughter might ask me about the fairytale wedding and I can recount those 20 minutes I caught live while I was drying my hair for work. But the wedding that means most to me? My own.
This weekend marks my one year wedding anniversary to the most amazing man in the world. Sure, most women say that about their husbands, but I don't think I could have ever picked a better partner. It's almost uncanny how perfect we are for each other. Our combined ADD for life keeps us both on our toes and constantly entertained. I know how important that is for me to live the life I want to lead, and it just makes me giddy with joy to know I've found the man who compliments that.
From the sweet text messages he sends throughout the day, to the hugs as soon as he walks in from work, I have found that my life before him was more incomplete than I could have ever imagined. Watching TV together, going on walks through our neighborhood, and driving our convertible through the mountains of South Carolina, just enrich our lives. I am a better person because of him and I hope he says the same about me. This past year has had a few ups and downs, but mostly ups. We work hard at it and he will never understand how much I appreciate that effort he gives.
As we embark into year 2 of our married life together, I foresee some major changes in our lives and many great adventures. No, our wedding wasn't as extravagant as the royal wedding, but I definitely married a prince.
