2 Years Married: What I’m Learning

I was reminiscing today and thinking about how crazy it is that Aaron and I have known each other for almost 4 years and have been married just over 2 years!  To some that may not seem long at all AND in the grand scheme of life it really isn’t. But, I am {over the moon, home-run, reach for the stars, Lambeau leap, touchdown}happy about the fact that we have the rest of our lives together.  We have so much to look forward to and just a blink of an eye in memories behind us.

We celebrated our 2nd Wedding Anniversary in December and I wanted to take a moment out of my busy life to reflect on a few things I’m learning from Aaron and from being married thus far.

2 Years Married: What I’m Learning

It’s OK to be silly. Aaron is one of the silliest people I know! And he doesn’t care what other people think when he’s being silly in public. It’s quite hilarious.  And, even though I act like I’m annoyed or embarrassed, I secretly think it’s funny. But, really, it’s no secret {because he can read me like a book}.  Someone has to be the adult, right? 😉

When life throws curveballs – you hit a home run – TOGETHER. I am a huge planner.  And far too often life throws curveballs and things don’t turn out the way I pictured.  It can be a big let down for me and make life way more disappointing than it needs to be.

So instead of letting me stay in my state of misery, Aaron has patiently guided me and given me ideas on how deal when things don’t go as planned.

He can almost always find the positive or think of a new way to approach a situation. When we put our brains together, we hit life’s curveballs out of the park! I’m so thankful that Aaron is my rock throughout the unplanned events in life.

The importance of faith and clinging to God’s Word. Having devotions and going to church together as a married couple builds a bond that is difficult to describe – it’s mysterious. It’s common ground for us both and there is much comfort in the fact our marriage is Christ-centered.

There’s something extra special about routine.  It was great when we finally figured out our “routine” as a married couple.

The first year was new and fresh and somewhat of a culture shock because we were figuring out how to live with each other. But, that was what was amazingly fun and exciting about the first year of marriage.

Knowing that we worked together to get to this point and have a routine is one of the coolest rewards and makes me feel like we’re real adults {haha 😉 }.

Well, those are just a few things I’m learning from being married.  And I could honestly make a ginormous list, but I’ll wait for the next anniversary. Happy 2 years {and counting} Aaron!

Have a fantastic night!
