But being without him tonight just confirms how thankful for the decision we made a year ago. I had a lovely dinner with my parents and Meghanne and Caleb that was reminiscent of so many Friday nights pre-marriage, but I much prefer this wedded state. Since getting married, I miss Richard during the day when we are apart and love seeing him when he gets home. I so enjoy being close to him daily after having to wait weeks or even months at a time to see him before. Marriage has definitely been challenging at times, but it has also been an even bigger blessing than I ever imagined it could be. On this engagement anniversary eve, I am so, so thankful that he asked and I said yes!

first night apart
Tonight is the first night of our short married life that Richard and I are spending apart. There will be many more to come with call and military obligations, but this first one seemed a bit of a milestone. I traveled to the Upstate early this morning (the flight was cheaper!), and he's not coming in until tomorrow morning. Yes it's our second weekend in a row to South Carolina, but tomorrow is our annual Clemson reunion tailgate. And the one-year anniversary of our engagement. We're back for the tailgate and game, not so much the engagement anniversary.
