Today marks two whole years since I said ‘I do’ and inevitably it changed my life forever. It’s the day I said ‘I do’ to a traveling lifestyle, syrup Saturdays, and a never-ending list of new things to try. To the marriage veterans, two years is nothing; they look back at when they’d been married for just two years and laugh at when they thought they had everything figured out. But as self-proclaimed life long honeymooners, every year is a landmark. It is another year that we proved the negative marriage stereotypes wrong. I am definitely not an expert on marriage nor do I ever want to come across as one. I know that each day is different, each day is a new and wonderful challenge, and each day has its lessons to be learned. Speaking of lessons, here are some that we’ve learned in our two years of marriage:
-Starting a serious discussion late at night is never a good idea. Beds are for sleeping, couches are for talking.
–Always make more food. I learned this the hard way. I figured a meal that I made for myself when I was single would surely be enough for the both of us. Wrong.
-Long drives through the country rice fields are the best for long talks.
-Always remember to turn off the water heater after hubs gets out of the shower (ps our water heater needs to be turned on for each use, best and worst thing I’ve ever experienced)
-First one up makes breakfast. Aka hubs.
-All things said out of hunger should be immediately forgotten.
-Prayer, prayer, prayer.
This pretty much sums up our two years…
Happy anniversary hubs! Here’s to many many more! Even though neither of us can remember very much of the vows that we wrote, we do both remember promising to always be partners in adventure. I think we’ve done a pretty good job so far. I can’t wait to see what the next 70 plus years has in store for us.
