6 months

6 months ago today
i stood next to my father behind two large wooden doors.
i heard the piano begin
i took a deep breath
and the doors opened.

at the end of the aisle
stood my sweet bennett.

i barely remember anything.
not the people
not the photographer
not the temperature of the chapel.
all i remember is the way the music sounded in my ears
the way the sunlight poured through the windows
and the way it felt to lock eyes with him
knowing he was my husband
and my best friend
and he would love me
and keep me safe
till death do us part.

i remember choking through my vows
and the way it felt to finally kiss my husband.
i remember walking back down the aisle
hand in hand
and being led to a room 
so we could have a few minutes to ourselves.

but most of all
i remember that door shutting behind us 
and how the tears streamed down our cheeks
and we were so incredibly happy
words cannot even explain it.

these past 6 months have been the most challenging
and the most rewarding months of my life.
we have grown closer than i knew possible.
some days i love him so much
that it hurts.
it honest to goodness hurts.

i can't imagine my life without him.

happy 6 months
my love.
thank you for absolutely everything.
