I have been a wife for a whole entire YEAR. It still blows my mind and I get butterflies just thinking about how so stinkin thankful I am that Adam is mine..forever. I don't talk a ton about our marriage on my blog but it's more because I love how private we have become over the last year. Not that I don't want people knowing what were doing, it's just that I have learned to cherish things in real life a lot more and worry a whole lot less about posting them to my blog. I feel like I sort of regret that because I want to be able to look back and read posts about our early marriage days but I also like that we have some memories just between us. With that said though, year two will be much more documented. I miss this space and writing. I have let a lot of (necessary) life things get in the way of what I really want to be doing with my time and have decided it's time to put some things on hold for now.
In true Jamie fashion it wouldn't be a year without multiple LIFE CHANGING moments. Before we got married we thought we had a plan. We thought we knew exactly what God wanted us to be doing and where he wanted us to be doing it. Oh how we were wrong. Not even two months into our marriage (and one month into our lease on our townhouse!) did we decided to buy a house. This was not something we planned on doing until after our first year of marriage, but God put the most perfect house right into our laps and there was no way we could ignore that it was what he wanted for us. We have LOVED turning this house into a home. Being able to have a place that is truly OURS has been so good for our marriage.
Obviously another big moment during our first year of marriage was finding out we were having a BABY! Again, before we got married this was not the "plan." We didn't really have a plan as far as a baby was concerned but we definitely weren't planning on having one. But again God had other plans. Once we were in our new house and were creating a life together we knew a baby was the next step. We love that we didn't stress about getting pregnant we just let it happen. and it happened fast. But we could not be more excited to welcome our baby boy at the end of this year.
Some of my best memories over this last year with Adam are our morning breakfast dates, driving around exploring our city, and hosting family and friends at our house. We have grown as individuals and as a couple. Our marriage is EVERYTHING to me and I still can't believe how lucky I am. I married the most selfless person who would do anything in the world for me.
Ad, thank you. thank you. thank you. you make all my dreams come true. I love you!
