It’s been one year. ONE WHOLE YEAR of marriage! I can’t believe how quickly it went by!
To commemorate this beautiful anniversary, I decided that I didn’t want to ramble on and on and list a million reasons about what I learned in my first year of marriage or how I learned what love really means or how I really didn’t believe it when people said “marriage is tough”. Maybe I’ll write a series on that. Maybe. But, it’s one of those topics that an in-person conversation is so much better than another post in the blogosphere! So, instead, I’m posting wonderful photos and a couple of resources that already exist that offered me wonderful perspectives on marriage that I would rather share with all of you. And because, let’s be honest, I’m going to drink mimosas and soak up this wonderful day with my husband.
I wouldn’t want to journey in my vocation with anyone else but my sweet husband! God has chosen us and invited us into this vocation together. We chose to respond and to give our “yes!”, but we were invited. And, what a gift it is to be invited into a vocation and to recognize that what God has chosen for us is the way that we can live fully and be the best versions of ourselves! It’s hard work and it’s so completely worth it.
The following are a few posts that offered me wisdom on married life that I hope will offer insight for others (wherever you may be in life):
- 6 Lessons I Learned in My First 6 Months of Marriage (Chloe Langr)
- Just You Wait (Emily Wilson)
- 5 Lessons Learned About Marriage (Hallie Lord)
I also want to share this incredibly sweet video that my husband surprised me with at our reception.
I want to thank all of the wonderful family, friends & religious who have supported us this past year & have done so much for us. We couldn’t do it without all the many incredible men & women in our lives who love us so well!
Happy one year anniversary to my forever sweetheart!
