August 20th 2012 we had been married for one year! What a year it was. I learned so much, grew so much, went through more hardships than I could’ve ever thought could happen in one year. But I also had the time of my life with my best friend in a city across the country. He is so adventurous and has encouraged me to explore this city and to be positive through it all. He is the best grad school cheerleader out there.. and we all know I need an army to keep me in grad school. And he is working so hard to support us. I wouldn’t have survived Boston without him. Cheers to year one!
