My 1 year wedding Anniversary!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I am so over joyed to say that today marks my 1 year wedding anniversary with my incredible husband, Justin!
This past year was a huge life change. I not only got married, but I also moved to a completely new state and started a new life here in Connecticut.  :)
There were some emotional times both sad and happy with moving here. In the beginning mostly sad. But now I couldn’t be happier with how things have turned out! :)
I have a gained another family, and also some incredible friends.

This year I have learned a ton about being married, and I know that my learning will continue every day from here on out.
But here are some key things I’ve learned:

  • Marriage = selflessness. It’s about putting God first in your life, and in your marriage. And then your spouse second. It’s about serving your husband the best way you can and always trying to out give. And it’s about putting your husband before yourself in love.
  • A healthy marriage = communication. Okay, so if we’re being honest here, this was one I struggled with big time. I tend to bottle things up and assume that Justin would just magically figure out what was wrong with me and why I was upset…. well I learned pretty quickly this doesn’t work. haha! Justin isn’t God and he can’t read my thoughts. So by holding things in, it just caused frustration on both ends. I really had to learn how to calmly express what was going on and be willing to listen to what Justin had to say. We both had to learn how each of us communicated. We had to learn to talk things out and to hear the other person’s view. We had to learn to be patient and selfless. We’re still learning just like every other couple out there, but I can say that talking things out calmly and willing to listen has been the best thing for us- for any marriage.
  • Fun = a relaxed marriage. Date nights are so important! Random spontaneous adventures create a time of focusing on us as a couple. Not the stress of work and life. And I believe spending time together doing things you love will make a marriage more relaxed and easier to work through things. Date nights relieve all that pressure from work and life. And it reminds you why you fell in love with your spouse in the first place. Besides, who doesn’t love date nights?! :)

This year was truly the best year of my life. It’s been such a blast hanging out with my best friend everyday and figuring out life together! Everyday is a whole new adventure and I couldn’t imagine doing it with anyone else. Justin, thanks for always putting Christ first in everything. Thanks for loving me, and showing me what a Godly man looks like. Thanks for all the fun date nights, late minute snowboard trips, and creating moments where I laugh so hard I can’t breathe. Here’s to many many many MANY more years. I love you!! <3

Now time to walk down memory lane….

I thought it would be fun to share my wedding video shot by the amazing and ever so talented Dustin Schultz from The Union Productions.
And also some of my favorite photos from our wedding shot by the incredible Lauren Fair. :)

Enjoy!!
