<3 First Anniversary

A year ago yesterday, I married the man of my dreams.

He also happens to be a Nerd.

This blog is about my life with him. And all the fun things I get to experience because I married a Nerd.

I’m so thankful that I met this man, fell madly in love with him, and moved away with him with no job, no money, nothing but my faith in him. At the time, there were people in my life telling me that I was making the wrong decision. That I should wait a year or two, and see where this relationship was heading before I made the “big leap.”

Those people have never truly experienced love, in my opinion. When you find the person you’re meant to be with, you just know it. It doesn’t take a year or two or three to realize that you want to be with someone forever. Deep in your heart, you know it. And you’re either ready to take that leap of faith, or you’re not.

I’m so glad I did.

Us on our one-year anniversary: Jan. 3, 2010


  1. Congrats on a year, Arena! I love reading your blog posts!

  2. Thanks, Melody!

  3. Yay! Did you guys save any wedding cake and eat it a year later? That tradition is so weird to me…

  4. hey this is cool. i love the title, life, love and the final frontier. give james my congradulations for keeping you interested for a year!! expect plenty of great ones in the future.

  5. Ash – We didn't save any of the cake. That's just gross. I know it's supposed to be good luck, but if our marriage fails because I wouldn't eat year-old cake, so be it.

    Eric – Glad you stopped by! I thought the Star Trek reference might be appropriate… We need to come visit you guys soon! It's our turn to make the trip. Worldwake comes out at the end of February… :)
