Be Happy. Be Bright. Be You.


1 Year of Complete Bliss

This post is SUPER late, but life can get so crazy sometimes! How has it already been one whole year (and a couple months...) since me and Andrew got married?!? Time has seriously FLOWN by. This past year has been the happiest year of my life. Everyone says that the first year is the hardest, but truthfully, this first year has been the best. Of course we have our ups and our downs, but doesn't everyone?! I wouldn't have wanted this first year to be any different. I have learned so much about Andrew, and SO much about myself.
We were driving home from Texas the day before our anniversary, and knew we were going to be so tired, so we wanted to do something simple but memorable. We made reservations at the Roof in Salt Lake and afterwards walked around temple square and reminisced about our wedding day! It was the perfect night. Simple but sweet. Andrew makes me the happiest, whenever he is at school, on a trip, or just gone running errands, I am always missing him! I love having his sweet presence in our home. Even if we are both studying and not even paying attention to each other, it's just so nice to have him there. I remember years ago when we would talk about getting married and how excited we were. It's so weird to jump forward into the present time and see where life has taken us! Time needs to slow down! Andrew and I are so much alike (not sure if that's a good or bad thing ;) ). We both just love to joke around with each other all day. We both are so terrible with trying to "diet" or anything... when we go to the grocery store we always go straight for the ice cream.. we LOVE dessert. We both like the left side of the bed... but of course that is MY side..whenever I leave for work he rolls over onto my side haha! We both are clean freaks. We both the most indecisive humans on this earth (no you choose, no babe, please you choose, I don't care blah blah blah..... our conversation literally everywhere we go). We both are "learning" how to be good cooks. We both hate hate hate going grocery shopping (which is why I always do it for us haha). We both love to take naps. We both are angggggry humans when we are woken up. We both love pretending we are good at singing and dancing. ETC. ETC. ETC. I could go on, and on, and on! I just love my person. And I am so grateful I get to be with him forever and ever. I wouldn't want to spend this life with anyone else. He just gets me... ya know??? Even when he doesn't get me... he still does haha. I love falling asleep next to him every night and waking up to him every morning. I love making breakfast with him on Saturdays. I love laying in bed and reading scriptures together. I love getting in arguments that when there is 3 pay periods during the month that is technically like an extra paycheck aka extra money aka I'm going shopping with it (Andrew doesn't agree). I love exercising together. I love going on trips together and exploring this beautiful world. I love watching Andrew take the first bite of a meal I make to see if its good or bad hahaha. I love watching Netflix series with him, even if I always get too excited and get way ahead of him. I love doing homework with him... we are good at motivating each other! I just love love love Andrew Lawrence Silotti. Ever since I was a little sophomore in high school, I always said and knew in my mind that I was going to marry Andrew. Little did I know that it would actually happen. August 1, 2015 was the best day of my life. I remember waking up that morning thinking, "oh my gosh, I'm actually marrying him today!" I was SO excited, nervous, anxious, and every other emotion, but I knew in my heart I was making the right decision. I knew that I met Andrew for a reason. I finally fulfilled my lifelong dream: to marry Andrew, and to be married in the Salt Lake City Temple. The temple is such a spiritual place and I am so happy we were able to be married and sealed for all time and eternity in the Lord's house. My cup runneth over with blessings. I'm so happy I fell in love with him. He's truly the best thing that's ever been mine (our song--shout out to T-swift). Our love will never get old. I love him. Happy one year to us!! Here's to a million, trillion more! Enjoy some of my favorite wedding pictures + pictures from the night of our anniversary.

"If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don't expose it to the elements. You don't make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by." -F.
