Four Years

Today marks four years of wedded bliss for my husband and me. I seriously cannot believe how fast time has flown by and how amazing these years have been. Sure, like any couple it's not all puppies and rainbows all the time (like when I sometimes yell at him to stop being lazy and to do whatever random chore I want him to do). But for the majority of the time it's amazing.. we're a team, and we're always on each others side no matter what.

We got married pretty young.. I was 23 and he was 24. It wasn't for religious reasons (we were living together after all), and a lot of people told us "you are too young!" (Isn't it amazing what comes out of people's mouths?). But we never thought twice about it. There was never a thought in my mind that I shouldn't marry this guy.. he is my best friend and he means the world to me. He makes me a better person and he understands me completely.. the good, the bad and the ugly. Not to mention he is the most supportive husband I could ever have. When I said "I'm going to quit my decently-lucrative day job to be a decorator" he didn't bat an eye.

It's funny because we are soooo different. A true example of "ying" and "yang". You could say I'm aloof, artsy and stubborn. He's "square" and simple and always with it. But I think that's the key to our relationship.

I started this blog to write about our lives (Did you know it used to be called Newlywedisms? haha). It's turned into so much more and it's made all my dreams come true, but sometimes I still want to document things and feelings, which is the reason for this post. No one ever knows what the future will bring, but this is how I feel here and now.

And in honor of our anniversary, some pictures of our wedding. They make me so happy because I can really see how happy we were that day. It was perfect!

  2. My parents got married at 23 & 25 and just celebrated 34 years.  I think extremely young marriage (before age 20) isn't the greatest idea, but after that if you know, you know.  Congratulations!

  14. Today is my 10th wedding anniversary.  I must say September is my favorite time of year, but it was CRAZY (just a few weeks post 9/11).  We married at 21 and 25.  Marriage is a crazy ride!  The most important part is that you are a team.  Congrats on 4 years!

  15. Happy Anniversary.  I think you might be the most beautiful bride ever in these pictures.  Your dress, your hair, your veil, your face.  Lovely.  And so happy!  Your husband is adorable.  Like Matt Damon.

  22. Happy Anniversary!! My husband and I got married young, too, and it is amazing the comments people feel are appropriate to make. I was shocked by all the "young people who get married can always get divorced" comments .. really?!?!  Here's to happy marriages that start when we're young and last forever!!!
