2 Year Married Anniversary
Every relationship has its own story with different chapters of life. I cannot believe that my husband and I have officially been married for over 2 years now! They say time flies when you’re in love. Throughout those two years, we have been through the ups, the downs, and the roll around. So many changes happened in our lives, between me changing career paths, to finding a condo to move into, to simply learning how to live together. However, through all those times I wouldn’t change a thing.
Not many of you would know this but my husband and I met in high-school. It was my junior year and his senior year. We started off as close friends and he likes to joke that he knew I was the one from the moment he met me, for me it took a minute. I don't think I realized that love is so much more than the butterflies and the adoration. It's about that feeling of home, of knowing that your person always has your back through thick and thin.
Photos of us through the years
My husband has been with me through the roughest times in my life, through prayer, love, and patience we have successfully been dating for 10 years.
I am not going to say it's been all butterflies and rainbows. There have been lots of storms that have come our way. However, it's through those storms that we became stronger in our love, communication, and relationship.
Our Christianity is something that we both bonded with from the get-go. It's not normal that you meet an 18-year-old boy that will go to church with you and your family on your first date. That was my husband. I remember it clearly as if it were yesterday. He showed up to the church, greeted my mom with a firm hand-shake, and wore a charcoal grey suit that he bought from Goodwill. After that, my mom was smitten and even told me "That's going to be your husband."
Of course years later her words came to fruition when my husband and I walked down the aisle. Life is already kind of stressful but when you find your person to share it with, wow, does it seem magical.
Blogging is something I am so passionate about and I am so blessed to have a husband who supports me through it all. From discussing topics to advise, to squatting on a cold day to take my picture, it's through his love and dedication that I can do my blog.
I wanted to do something different for our anniversary by incorporating my husband in this blog post. He was a bit hesitant to answer these questions at first but through some heavy persuasion, he agreed. Below, you will find my husband's answers to the following questions. Thanks so much for following along with our 'strange' fairytale. As always I love you guys thanks so much for reading. To my husband, happy anniversary gooh, I love you to the moon and back!
WHEN DID YOU FIRST MEET Rachel AND WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION?
At high-school by her locker, she wore a lot of make up. I liked how she had the winged eyeliner. I saw her everyday when I was running late for school and she was doing attendance. I wanted to talk to her then but I was too scarred. I finally had enough courage to add her on Facebook, which was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
WHICH ONE OF YOU MORE AGGRESSIVELY PURSUED THE OTHER?
I pursued her but she rejected me every-time. (I still tease her about this) I eventually won her over with my great charm. She just couldn't say no to my good looks.
WHAT ARE THE BEST AND WORST PARTS OF YOUR WIFE’S JOB AS A BLOGGER?
She always takes pictures of everything which can make it hard to be in the moment. The positive, I have memories and pictures from events, vacations, and outings we do together. She also takes me on fun food and drinking events I like that a lot. I also am proud of how hard she works in perfecting her craft. It takes a lot of dedication to do what she does.
WHAT IS SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOUR WIFE?
She thinks reality TV is real.
WHAT DOES YOUR WIFE DO THAT DRIVES YOU CRAZY?
Binge watches reality TV
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY YOU DO THAT DRIVES HER CRAZY?
There's this one time I came home drunk and flushed a candle down the toilet...not one of my best moments.
DO YOU HAVE A MAN CAVE?
Yes, a small one in the corner.
WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR WIFE?
I love how she always thinks about my family. I also love how she shows her affection to me while I am stressed from work or other projects I'm working on. I'm big on personal time and she always dedicates some time to me.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE OTHERS ABOUT MARRIAGE?
Happy wife happy life. Wife is always right...even when she's wrong.
