I don't know about anybody else, but I am ready to put 2008 behind me. I've been giving it a lot of thought as I've been brainstorming for my one-year anniversary post for Weddingbee, and here's the thing - post-January 12th, our year went downhill fast. We've both dealt with huge stresses in our personal and professional lives, including health issues for our parents and me losing my job.
Me with my beautiful mom, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in July. She had a lumpectomy in August, and she completed radiation treatment in November. Six months after her diagnosis, she's completely cancer-free!
At the same time, I can't imagine having gone through this year any other way than with Mr. T. The old cliche is that your first year of marriage is the most difficult - and yes, ours absolutely was. But it wasn't difficult because of us - we were the easy part.
Our adorable house in the snow - the day we got home from our honeymoon!
