The first year

Today friends, is a special day in my world. One year ago, my man and I vowed to spend our lives together, for better or worse. It's crazy how fast the time has flown by... and to think of all that has happened!! It has been quite a roller coaster of a year, but I am beyond thankful to have my best friend by my side to face all of the ups and downs that life throws at us. A couple of months ago, the idea popped into my head to recite our vows every year on our anniversary. Leading up to our wedding, we took preparing for our marriage very seriously. We wanted to spend just as much {if not more} time building a foundation for our marriage as we did planning the details of our wedding. Our vows continue to be a powerful reminder of our promise & commitment to each other and to God.

We chose to say traditional vows at our wedding, so when I came across this gorgeous print from Lindsay Letters, I was so excited!

If you want to adopt this tradition, there are many calligraphers and artists on Etsy that you can commission to customize your own words of commitment. Although I LOVED the gold foil print above, I wanted a slightly more traditional piece that included our names & wedding date, so I asked the talented Kristen Henderson, to hand letter ours!

Do you have any special anniversary traditions?
