What a wonder!
It has been 1 year - more than one year, since I celebrated a major milestone of my life.
July 2, 2016 was a Lovetastic celebration of 2 weirdos making a pact to lovingly adventure together in life!
We moved onto the farm in September 2016 and the past year has been an absolute cacophony of annoyance, beauty, understanding, creation + making home, together.
When we celebrated our first year wedding anniversary together I marveled; everyone coos over the glamorous buzz of planning a wedding but only my dear elderly Italian neighbour took a moment to lovingly ground me with the real work of marriage. From my understanding and definition, marriage is a commitment to unite two individuals in an equitable (and fun! and honest!) dance of power wherein both are nurtured to grow.
Dudes. This feat is more challenging + scary than anyone can articulate but also more deeply satisfying and amazing than anyone can articulate.
My heart is so full.
I continue to overflow with gratitude (that needs to be translated into thank you cards, STILL) for the new landscape that is my life with the most ridiculous, wise + steadying force of love that is my husband and partner-in-crime, Gopaul.
It feels really good to close the loop on Lovetastic celebrations in my blog + make way for my voice to flow again in words.
Thank you all for your good wishes!

With gratitude + quiet delight beyond my wildest imaginings,
