I love marriage. Seeing happily married couples is one of my favorite things, always has been. You know the old couple who still holds hands. Dah! Be still my heart. I just love it. Since I got married a little over 2 1/2 years ago, my life has changed so much for the better. I was fortunate enough to marry my best friend.
Oh sure there’s been ups and downs along the way. Life has it’s way of throwing curveballs when you least expect it… as I type this I’m looking at my not-so-planned 11 month old daughter ha! But it all works out for the good. Being married has caused me to become more confident and secure in who I am. Will is my greatest cheerleader and strongest support system. We push each other to become better people, and laugh like delirious children along the way.
To have a partner for life, someone who is always in your corner. To have a person fight for you, and for what you have together. It’s powerful stuff guys. Maybe I’m still all doe-eyed and Hallmarky (I’ve have dubbed this to be a new word) about the subject, but I like it. There is something just so magical about two people being happy and in love.
For all those single peeps who are wanting to get married, hang in there. The wait is worth it. Because when you find the right person, it is freaking awesome!
So anyway, here’s some quotes (you all know my love of quotes by now) to celebrate marriage in all it’s glorious, funny, sometimes annoying, beautiful forms. Love is amazing.
