Some people warned me that the first year of marriage is the hardest but I just can't imagine that. This year was so so good. I don't think I can sound like anything but a cheesy, lovey-dovey mess when I think about our marriage. We had a healthy year, a peaceful year, a joyful year, a fun year. I have loved being married more than I ever thought possible. Whenever I'm asked "how's married life?" the first word to pop into my head is FUN! And it really is such pure joy to have T.J. there all the time to talk to, dream with, snuggle on the couch with, cook dinner for, travel with, laugh with, come home to. The comfort of knowing he is mine and I am his forever, is so grounding, and in the same breath, freeing.
I know we're new at this and I'm not so naive to think that we wont have hard seasons, but all my life, my biggest dream, my most desperate prayer, was to be a wife and a mother. Now I look at my husband (still love that I get to say that) and I see all those dreams come true.
