One CRAZY year in the books

Jeff and I celebrated our one year anniversary on July 23rd. Time really does fly by, especially when you’ve had a year to remember.

There have been a ton of trials and tribulations in our first year of marriage…

  • First 6 months living in separate cities. Jeff in Montgomery, me in Birmingham. 
  • In February, I had a terrible car accident that left me with a severely broken pelvis and bound to a wheelchair for 4 months.
  • Shortly after my accident, Jeff left coaching soccer, moved to Birmingham, and started a completely different career path.
  • I’m able to walk again, but quickly break both of my heels and ankles. 
  • My parents sell their house in Ohio and build a new house in Birmingham. 
  • We find out we’re going to have a baby! 

We have laughed and loved each other through the entire journey, and it has made our relationship stronger.

Here’s to another year….the best is yet to come!
