Do you ever look back on your wedding day? The excitement, the tears, and the love? A couple of weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our second year of marriage. It came so quickly, I feel like I missed it. Our first anniversary I was counting down the days just like I had been leading up to our wedding day. Another milestone for us. One year down forever to go. Shortly after our 1st anniversary we found out we were pregnant, and the whole
This year leading up to our second anniversary was wedding season. We had
Those feelings and memories I don’t think I will ever forget. I remember
It was a perfect day, but I would change a few things. For starter I would record the speeches – they were so funny and sweet I wish I had them to listen to all the time. Secondly, I would downsize – everyone told me but I didn’t listen. So if you are currently planning a wedding. Listen to those around you. They actually have good advice and insight. Sometimes the joy and excitement of getting married and planning a wedding are like having blinders on. You don’t notice different ways, and you don’t see the more realistic things you can do, instead of the fairytale you have in your head. It can still be a fairytale, just with a little more realistic elements.
My advice, save the money for a honeymoon. Or a house, those things are expensive
I know for us the past 2 years have been a learning curve for both of us, and we still have lots to learn. When we got married, like all other couples we had to mesh our separate lives together. Our marriage has had rough fights but we’ve had way more love and laughs. I was pretty set in old habits that made my husband frustrated, and vice versa. I’m sure every couple experiences this when they get married. Luckily my husband is big on communication and although I wasn’t great at it we learned how to communicate quite well and are still learning. It was a big thing in our relationship. He needed to hear me say everything I expected of him and what I expected for us as we started building our home. It changed what and how we fought about everything. My other biggest piece of advice for new couples. Communicate. Tell your husband or wife what you need, they can’t read mines. As much as we would like them to, they can’t.
2 years, forever to go. I love to say this each year, and I look forward to saying it 60 years from now too. The memories and the stories we have accumulated over the last 2 years have been beyond happy and full of love. We have so much more to learn and to discover about each other and about being married and so many more memories to make. Our growing family gives me that joy and excitement i felt on our wedding day. It was a magical day, but our marriage, that’s going to be quite the story!
