last week marked our year and a half anniversary. no, we don’t really celebrate a year and a half of being married but doesn’t it just sound better than one year? :) everyone says that the first year of marriage is always the most difficult. in our situation, i didn’t really find that to be true. maybe it’s because we were married really young, i don’t know. it was not always easy, but i loved the newness of being married. i will tell you though, that for us the first year of marriage + a little baby has been more challenging. it has shown me, especially, the selfishness in my heart and how often things i want done my way. yes, the Lord uses different things in life to shape us and mold us into the person He wants us to be… and marriage is one of those things. these quotes are some of my favorite by gary thomas from his book “sacred marriage.” my mom gave it to me to read before jay and i were married and it is seriously one of the best books on marriage. ever.
so here’s to a year and half of bein’ married and many more years to come. have a beautiful sunday, friends.
