Happy 1st Anniversary

I have been writing more about life here and have witten less with the more personal articles, but today is special.

Today is my 1st Wedding Annniversary with my sweet Elena.

We had known each other about 3 years before I moved here and then had to postpone our marriage due to medical reasons.

Well, as of today we have made it One Year. Has it been easy, no. Even though we knew each other for a long time before I moved here and chatted and talked twice a day on the internet, you do not know someone until you live together. Add to learning a new culture and country and the frustrations magnified all the learning.

With all that said, Elena and I are still in LOVE and happy we decided to be together and me move here.happy-anniversary

So, Elena, Happy Anniversary. I Love you and will always love you, no matter what.
