It’s always better when we’re together….
Today my sweet husband and I celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary. I really cannot believe just how fast time flies. It seems like yesterday that I was at the salon getting my hair done with my bridesmaids and anticipating seeing my soon to be groom! I can vividly remember his reaction when we saw each other for the first time (we did a First Look, that’s why I LOVE them!). I loved our wedding, I loved my dress, my bridesmaids dresses, the chocolate brown tux’s. I loved the reception venue, an old mansion. I loved our dessert reception and photo booth. So many good memories. The thing I loved the most about our wedding was the fact that Joe and I were now a family. The months of anticipation came to fruition when we said our vows and the pastor pronounced us husband and wife. We began our life together on May 3rd 2008. So much has happened since then, we bought a home, we renovated it, we took many roadtrips, we visited many cupcake and gelato shops. We both had surgeries, we’ve had arguments, we’ve cried together, we’ve prayed together. We’ve made new friends, lost some friends. We’ve successfully kept our dog alive. Being married is the hardest thing you’ll ever do, but also one of the best things! I could go on and on but I would probably bore you all. But here are a few things that I’ve learned over the year, some silly, some important.
Things I’ve learned since being married to Joseph Reese
~don’t sweat it when there are papertowels all over the kitchen counter or random half-full water glasses in various places around the house
~raising a dog is like raising a kid, you need to be on the same page when it comes to training…which means Piper is not allowed on the bed, even though sometimes I let her upshhh
~having Joe know that I support him 100% even when I don’t understand makes him feel like he can do anything…wives, it’s so important!
~allow the Holy Spirit be Joe’s conscience, not me. The Lord does a much better job
~the little things mean so much, making his sandwich in the morning or buying him his favorite Ben & Jerry’s means more then I realize
~its important to protect our time together.
~my attitude effects my husbands attitude, strive to be joyful, no matter what!
~my goal should always be have the “heart of my husband safely trust in me” Proverbs 31:11
~it’s ok to ruin dinner once and awhile and it’s even better to laugh about it. It’ll be a Chipotle night.
I love babe. Can’t wait to see what the Lord brings this year.
