One Year Ago Today

One year of love

One year ago today, Coding God and I got married.

You probably remember my fairytale wedding in Florence, but something I talked about less is the fact that Coding God and I got legally married before that—on March 17th. We had the legal wedding in the UK, and the big family celebration wasn’t until a few months later in July (in Italy!).

But officially, we’ve been married for one whole year! It’s crazy to think that it’s ALREADY been a year. How did that happen?!? It feels like just last month I was ranting about the uncertainty of the future. But here we are!

What’s it like being married for a year?

Honestly, it doesn’t feel that much different from when we were dating. We still have the same fun, easy relationship. We still act like goofy, nerdy best friends. And I still love him just as much as ever!

We have romantic TV time every night.

This is one of my favourite parts of the whole day. Right before bed, we snuggle up and watch one or two TV episodes. We have LOADS that we enjoy together. Some of them are:

  • Agent Carter
  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • Allegiance
  • The Blacklist
  • Elementary
  • Scorpion

It’s so nice having someone around who’s just like me.

Maybe that sounds weird.. But I guess what I mean is that I have a certain sense of humour. I’m also a big nerd and there are certain computer/techy things that I get that my other friends/family don’t get.

But my husband is the same. We share the same sense of humour. He understands all those nerdy things (even more than I do, actually). We can laugh about the same things. And he makes me laugh ALL THE TIME!

He’s so warm and cuddly.

I can imagine him rolling his eyes right now because I’m totally emasculating him. (Sorry, honey!)

But seriously. I feel like I can just melt into his arms. He’s so warm and comforting and sometimes it’s hard to let go. There’s no better feeling.

I’m so glad I married my best friend!

    That’s so exciting!! Happy Anniversary! You and Coding God just sound so lovely together. I was reading your list of TV shows and I love that the first one on your list was Agent Carter! Love that show so much! I’m sad the season was so short but it was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. Loved it!

    Miss chatting with you, but I still read your blog! Hope your new year with Coding God is even better than the first!

    1. Awww INKY!!! I’ve missed you!!

      Agent Carter is so awesome. I want to be her when I grow up.

  2. Congrats on one year, happy anniversary! It’s so funny, you and I have so many parallels: our birthdays are on the same day, we married our best friends, we both got legally married first and we both had destination weddings lol.

    I love coming home to mine every night. He’s just the best. Everything is fun with him, even grocery shopping (yuck!).

    1. It is so funny how similar our lives are! How did that happen?!?! Haha. πŸ˜€ *high five*

  3. I don’t mean to sound corny, but time flies omg. I remember when you first introduced the idea of getting married and I was silently hoping y’all’d go through with it. I love seeing people in love “make it official.” Congrats on your first year and here’s to 100 more~.

    1. I totally agree with you Sierra! Time totally flies. It feels like so recently that I was worried about the future of our relationship because of visa problems, and I had no idea what was going to happen. And it’s so wonderful that all these bloggers/readers have been with me every step of the way!

  4. Congratulations! Happy anniversary πŸ™‚ Already a year.. It feels like yesterday since I’ve read some of your posts about this. It’s crazy how time flies!

    I do the same with my boyfriend too. We always watch something before we go to sleep. It’s nice to have some chill time together πŸ™‚ I’m also going to marry my best friend.

  5. Oh, I’m so happy everything worked out for you. I never knew your relationship struggle before this post, but I’m so glad you guys are happy together. Congratulations, Ashley.
