Cheers to TWO years…

 Ok this post is going to be a little bit different from all my other posts…for the first time on my blog I’m not going to be talking about painting something, or diy’s and I don’t have any before & after pics.  Today, I woke up, drank my coffee jammed out to a little Justin Timberlake and just felt like writing, writing about life & about love.

One of the reasons I started a blog in the first place was my LOVE for writing. I love to write. I loved it in high school & even all throughout college. I was that girl in school who absolutely loved English classes. Writing has always been my outlet. This week my husband and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary, and it really got me thinking…about us, about our relationship & about life.

Thankful. 

If I had to choose just one word to describe how I feel about this life we live together & how our relationship has grown over the years. Thankful. This week more than ever, it hit me. This life is short. We pray for the weeks to fly by & for the weekends to last forever, but before we know it, the weeks are turning into months and months into years are just like that life is passing us by right before our eyes.

Looking back through these last two years of marriage I’ve realized that the best things in life aren’t things, they are moments. Moments that make you stop, take a second, and realize that life we live is really quite, beautiful. Our first year of marriage was so, easy. It was one of the best years of my entire life. Life was good, life was almost in a sense, effortless. We were comfortable, with life and with each other. This second year has been a little different. Don’t get me wrong I’m still the happiest I’ve been and life is good as ever, but this second year I’ve realized more than anything that my husband and I are a team. We both have been pushed outside of our comfort zone this past year, we survived 1 of us going back to school & both of us starting new jobs. We were challenged, but we grew. 

A strong marriage rarely has two strong people at the same time, it’s a husband & a wife who take turns being strong for each other.

So if I’ve learned anything at all about life & about love over these past couple years it would be to embrace it. Embrace life & embrace the one or {ones} that you love & spend all the time you possibly can with the person that you love. I just feel overwhelmed with gratefulness that my husband & I have the time that we have with each other and I don’t ever want to take a single second of that for granted

The journey hasn’t always been easy, but I wouldn’t change a single thing about our path…it’s what got us here. Here, being the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life. It’s crazy to think back about these past two years, one being totally different from the other but both so, so special in the very there own way. Life has a funny way of working itself out sometimes.

So here’s to the little things, here’s to moments & life and love and here’s to making a conscious effort every single day to appreciate life as it happens.
