365 days ago, i was married for time & all eternity in salt lake city
to the most perfect & respectful man there ever was.
my mind is completely blown.
it has been one year. i have been married a year.
am i still even considered a newlywed?
i'll just say yes.
i can't even begin to describe how much i love mr. schroeder.
he is my other half. his strengths fulfill my weaknesses.
he gives me the best pep talks anyone has ever given me.
he is hardworking, dedicated, & always makes my dreams come true.
i love him more than life itself & can't imagine life without him.
i love his laugh. the way he throws his head back & looks at me like,
"did you really just say that?"
i love the smell of carpet & tools when he gets home at night.
i love his scruff.
and i love the way he talks in his sleep.
he is constantly trying to make me feel better about myself.
he always looks for the good in people.
if i ever say, "that person was really grumpy today, weren't they?"
of course, he'll jump back with a "maybe they had a bad day." "or maybe their cat died."
he's funny. but so kind-hearted, too.
i love love LOVE the way he is exactly like his father.
his stories are perfect, his obsession with sunflower seeds & beef jerky,
especially the complete humble way he presents himself.
i am a blessed woman. so incredibly blessed.
for our second year of marriage, i am going to focus on:
•not criticizing when mr. schroeder leaves his socks all over the place.
•showing my love in more ways than one.
•focus on bettering myself to become the best wife i can be.
•support my husband's decisions through faith
•suggest prayers, family night, and temple dates more often.
