As of March 5th, Christopher and I have been married for a year and a half now.
And it has been an 18 months chock full, my friends.
We have had many positive experiences like our #SavageSecondHoneymoon vacation, probably more shows than I can even try to remember, and many many personal jokes, way-too-loud car sing-alongs, and Netflix marathons of our favorite shows.
But you know what else? These past months were certainly not devoid of difficult decision-making, disagreements big and small, and quite a few tears along the way, as well.
Overall, though? We have an amazing time. We laugh every day. We say “sorry,” both of us. A lot.
I said this in my post about a year ago, but marriage changes things. Marriage doesn’t change people, but marriage somehow changes things. I’m not sure why, but it does.
We give each other more grace. We take each other more seriously. And you know what? I think we laugh more, too.
I have changed so much since that gorgeous day in September, and I’m even more grateful for Christopher now than ever.
I don’t know where else our lives and marriage will take us, but I can tell you one thing for sure: there will be many laughs and some VERY loud showtune sing-offs along the way. <3
