Welcome to married life!
Five months ago, I got to marry my best friend and love of my life.
What’s so crazy about that? People get married left and right, it’s no big deal. The thing is – we’re both students. With loans. And no jobs. People in my college look at me like I’m crazy when I say I’m married. “Married?! I can’t even decide what major to choose…” they say.
Well, it’s pretty simple. I’ve been indecisive about many things in my life. I’ve switched colleges, majors, aspirations… but then he came into my life. And for the first time, I knew exactly what I wanted.
It didn’t happen overnight, but I was quick to make my move. My husband doesn’t know this (not until he finds this blog, anyway) but I knew I wanted to marry him within the first month of meeting him. No, we weren’t even dating yet! We took it slow, and I held my tongue, but sure enough things progressed.
When I decided he was finally ready to hear it, I told him. First – that I love him. Second, that we would make great roommates. And third, that I would most definitely say yes if he was down one knee.
And here we are today. Five months in a blissful marriage that – like most, has challenges – but also opened a door to a life I could never even dream of. We aren’t perfect, but what fun would that be? Now, we only have one way up and I’m so excited for the ride.
Enough with the stories though, because pictures are worth a million words:
