I have been married for six years. SIX. It seems like it has just flown by.
I’ve learned so much in these 6 years. I never knew I could love so much. That one country song, I thought I loved her then, as cliche as it sounds it is soooo true. From loving my husband, to loving seeing him become a dad. It’s a lot of love. A lot of love.
I’ve learned that date nights matter. Some of my favorite date nights have been after the girls go to bed and we would gather junk food and play video games. Date nights are super important especially after having kids. Kid free time is sooo important as a mom, but especially as a married couple with kids.
I’ve learned that life is too short to be serious. Me and my husband are rarely serious, unless the situation calls for it. We are pretty silly and joke around a lot. I think humor is important in a marriage. If you can’t laugh and have fun what’s the point?
Now I know a lot of this sounds like marriage is all fun and games but, just like life, it has it’s ups and downs. The ups are usually great, but the downs can get tough. Like learning that your spouse can’t read your mind and that you actually have too communicate your expectations (I’ve heard that can be a problem 😉) or being on the same page as each other from how you spend your money to how you raise your kids.
We have had our fair share of ups and downs, but there is no one else in this world I want to share them with.
