This weekend will be my anniversary. A lot has happened in the past year - I married, I moved in with Aaron, I graduated from medical school, I started my intern year. I'm in more control of my own life then I have ever been before. And it's kind of awesome! I met Aaron after complaining to my friend 5 years ago that I was bored. I told her too many 30 year olds were hitting on me (I was 22). I also told her I wanted someone taller than me. According to the state of NC DMV, Aaron is 1 inch taller than me...but I digress! The point is marrying Aaron Isbell was the best decision of my life. :-)
On Mark Ronson's Version album there is this awesome song about love, Apply Some Pressure. "You magnify the way I think about myself. Before you came, I rarely thought about myself." I think that's a sign of true, healthy love. Aaron has truly inspired me to be a better person, to be more selfless, to be more patient. In that way, marriage is anything but settling down. It's pushing yourself, it's exploring, it's new adventures. I don't think I would be the same person today if he hadn't walked into my life.
Happy Anniversary babe.
