6 Months of Marriage

Today marks exactly six months since our wedding day. I can't believe it's already been half a year. I reminisce about this day frequently & always say to my husband, "I wish we could have a wedding day once a year." The day just goes by too fast & if only I could have bottled up the happiness we felt that day. May 30, 2015 was not just our wedding day, but also our 10 year "dating anniversary," if that's such a thing. Ten years went just as fast as the past 6 months of marriage. People always ask us, "Has anything changed?" And the truth is nothing really has changed between us, but I have learned a lot these past months. And with that being said, I thought I would share them with you, whether you're a newlywed or married for 10+ years.

Compromise.
If I am being honest, I love getting my way, but sometimes compromise just works better & in the end you're both satisfied.

Little Moments.
I thought that a relationship was defined by "Big" moments. The romantic proposal, the nights out on the town, the big fights. I was so wrong. A marriage is made of a million little moments, & comparatively few "Big" moments. The everyday things matter so much more. The good morning kiss, the hug when you get home, the what can I do to help, the I just "get you" moments.

Get over the small stuff.
It's not worth it. Of course I get mad over the stupidest things, but in the end, they are so not worth it. You won't get that time back.

People change & so will your marriage.
You learn to adjust & move forward. It has to be expected and accepted on both ends.

Planning.
Make the plans, dream the dreams–but you don’t know what’s coming next.

Most importantly, marry your best friend.

I hope you all had a great weekend! More wedding details and photos can be found on this post xo
