Any big milestones since your wedding day? 

Since we married, we’ve lived in five apartments in four counties, produced a cute kid, and launched a volunteer group with 3,000 members supporting Syrian refugees. Good stuff.

Favorite memory from your 1st year of marriage:

The day after the wedding Amber had a serious asthma attack from all the flowers. We delayed our honeymoon to hang out in the Emergency Room. But, we were so elated from the wedding and all the small surprises that came our way, we didn’t mind at all. It turns out that what we really like is being together.

Favorite memory of your most recent year of marriage:

After we moved to Brooklyn, we started putting Sawyer to sleep by walking around the park. We talk under the trees until we’re tired. It’s a little bit of everyday magic.

Have you learned anything new or surprising about your partner since you’ve gotten married?

Yes. All the time. Becoming parents, losing a parent and growing older means we’re slightly different people than the ones who took vows six years ago. But that’s perfect. Who would want to be married to the exact same person forever?

Piece of advice you’d give other people getting married:

Talk. A lot. Talk about the easy stuff. Talk about the hard stuff. Talk about the stuff you think the other person already knows. Talk about the stuff you don’t want anyone else to know. Love is listening. Marriage is understanding.
