As they celebrate their anniversary, Banky W wrote on Instagram “Some say the 1st year of marriage is supposed to be the hardest to get used to.. That adjustment into sharing your space/world with someone is supposed to be difficult. 

Yet somehow, the past 365 days have been.. BY FAR.. the best year of my life. I’m so thankful that I found you. You were worth the wait. You are worth the effort. You are everything I hoped for, and much more than I deserve. Thank you for loving me and inspiring me. Thank you for being with me, and building with me. 

My life is better because you’re in it. In a world where most people aren’t lucky enough to find someone they can tolerate, I found my destiny. 

Happy Anniversary Shug. Forever’s gonna be fun. In Jesus Name, Amen. 😭😍😘😁🙈 #BAAD2017 #BAAD2018 #BAADFOREVER
