Be ready to be annoyed and possibly even gag. Because it's my husband and I's six month wedding anniversary, and I am feelin' a little lovey dovey today. Maybe it's silly to celebrate six months when I know most couples only celebrate yearly anniversaries, but being freshly married makes this girl a little silly.

I've been head over heels for this man almost since the moment I met him, and the last six months of my life have been an even greater awakening of that. He gives me more reasons to love him every single day, and more reasons to respect him & adore him.

The last six months have been filled with waking up to hot coffee sitting on my nightstand and a husband entering the bedroom with a tray of waffles; rolling around under a fortress of blankets and staring into each others eyes and wondering if this feeling of love could possibly be any stronger; long walks in the evening and conversations about our future together, walking hand in hand. Not to mention this blog, and how every new follower, every new comment and every e-mail is a reason for Matt to scoop me up in his arms and rejoice and tell me how proud of me he is. Surprise gifts, day dates, hunting trips, and a million laughs, hugs and kisses. I am one blessed little lady.

We spent such a large portion of our relationship being 1400 miles away from each other. To be able to have him and hold him at all times still makes me feel like I'm in a dream, and it's been over a year and a half since we were long distance.  I love that I'm the girl he kisses goodbye in the morning. I love that I'm the girl who gets to cook (and by cook I mean microwave) his meals, the girl that gets to be his cheerleader, and the girl who gets his heart.

Our "first look", and Matt hugging me while he cried. <3
You swept me off my feet this day six months ago, and you continue to do it every single day. You are my rock, my teammate, and my best friend. Team Hoyle for life. <3


  1. Happy 6th months to y'all! I think it's awesome that your celebrating the time you've been married! Hope you have a great day!



  2. i might just be emotional because it's thursday, but i got super teary reading this post. dago wouldn't want me saying this here, but i love him so much and can't wait to spend my life with him. i really can't imagine anything else. the love you and matt share is so incredible and you both seem to make each other stronger just by loving each other. is there anything more beautiful?

    ugh, i sound like a sap machine. you look fuggin' GORGEOUS in your gown. are those photos on the blog somewhere? i work for a wedding photog because my favorite thing to do is stalk other people's weddings. (sorry not sorry!)

    you're wonderful and i'm so happy to see you so happy.
