One Year Anniversary!

I can’t believe that its been a year since Melissa and I have gotten married. We’ve been celebrating all weekend but today is the actual one year to the date anniversary. Oh man! I’m excited. Not that I didn’t think we’d get this far, we’ve been together for over seven years now, but its huge! I mean, there are people who’s marriages don’t go past a few weeks and we have so much to show for this whole year.

It’s been a pretty damn good year too. I mean, would I go back to the excitement of that day one year ago (or the whole weekend in general?) hell yeah! By far one of the most exciting times of my life. But what we have today we didn’t even have in the back of our minds a year ago. I think it was there, lying in the background of things that we wanted to have, house, dog…but I don’t know if we knew how attainable it would be. And now we’re here (“living the American dream…” wait, I don’t know if that’s really what that’s supposed to mean, but sounds cool!) all that’s missing is a picket fence and kids!

I’ve decided to post one pic per month between our marriage and today to show the progression of this monumental 1st year! Enjoy!

Another month to get more then one pic.

Melissa, the rentos, my grandmother and myself in Puerto Rico

Rocket Dog Jones Cosme (now known simply as Rocky) came and went in the month of July. Now he looks like a little Gremlin–that’s only my opinion, lol–and he’s still within the family.
