It really is amazing to me how quickly time is flying by. My recent trip to India which was almost six months seemed to pass in just a matter of weeks. If I’m already feeling like this I can only imagine how I will feel once I have children!
All these feelings have come up today because at this time last year I had mehndi on my hands and feet, was getting fussed over, getting my hair and make up done, was a bundle of nerves and was headed to the most amazing, unforgettable night of my life.
A year ago today I married Abhi in the most beautiful, exotic setting that I ever could have imagined for myself. Twinkling lights surrounding a glistening pool, palm trees rustling in the slight breeze of the hot, sticky air, soft music playing in the background and the haze of smoke from the mosquito repellent. In my eyes it was nothing less than magical. I’ve never smiled more in my entire life, I was so happy to be in that specific place and that specific time with the love of my life.
I wish my family could have been there to celebrate with me, but the Gods work in mysterious ways. The huge volcano in Iceland that erupted and grounded so many flights, including my parent’s flight, did not erupt until shortly after we landed in India. After seeing the molten hot lava from the plane window when I couldn’t sleep, I realize just how lucky we were to make it to our own wedding.
And while I wish that my family was there, I still wouldn’t change anything about the evening. It was absolutely perfect.
Sure Abhi and I have had our ups and downs. We’ve fought together, cried together and have created a wonderful, happy home together. It hasn’t always been easy, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Happy Anniversary Abhi, I love you!
