“One by one each month flew by, since we both said “I do”…Twelve months of memories, shared by the two of us. From big events and holidays to simple daily pleasures,Some tearful times along life’s way, some joys that can’t be measured…One by one each month now is gone, but still they’re ours forever…Each and every memory, of one year together! Happy Anniversary to us!!” ♥♥

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary on 19th June! Rewind to an year ago, the most important day in our life so far!! My life seems complete and I couldn’t ask for anything more but to add more happiness in this little family we’re building now… Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love does gives us a fairy tale!!

Tradition says that your first wedding anniversary is called a Paperversary. You are supposed to exchange simplistic gifts made of paper; like a sentimental card or notebook, a printed picture or a small paper sculpture. The reasoning behind this tradition is little confusing, but here is the gist of what I’ve found out: The first year of marriage is supposedly the hardest. A young couple who is struggling to make ends meet, while trying to build a strong and a solid relationship, home and family foundation all at the same time. Regardless of how long a couple has been dating, living together, or known one another, their first wedding anniversary is both a sacred and special one. It is an anniversary of new beginnings, new bonds and new feelings – because no matter how you slice it, things ARE different once you get married…

“We’re all a little weird and life is also a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love – true love.” – Robert Fulghum

I met my husband in 2007.. he was my senior at my office and at that time none of us even dreamt that we both will get married… but love and faith mostly brought us together as husband and wife, and gave each of us a best friend for life… Being one of those couples who are from totally different part of the same country, with vast differences in language, tradition, thinking and cooking, it was really a tough time for us to get adjusted to one another thought and like process… But am happy to say that despite of all the struggles we went through in this one year, it has only brought us more close and more loveable to each other… and I give all the credit to my dear husband who was with me in all my tough times… in my laughs and in my tears… in my anger and in my patience, in my boredom and in my joy…. Believe me there is no feeling more comforting and consoling than knowing you are right next to the one you love…. So, here it is… Happy First Wedding Anniversary to me and my dearest husband Bala, the north lady and the south hero 🙂

Cheers!!
