I want to talk about my favorite thing- being married to my best friend. I’ve been married to Nick for just over a year and it has been even better than I could ever have imagined. I guess you could call us old fashioned, but we did not live together before tying the knot. It goes against our religious beliefs and statistically doesn’t give you a better chance of having a successful marriage. Since we hadn’t lived together we had no idea what to expect. Looking back our first year was a huge learning experience for both of us. I know we had a good amount of arguments or tiffs, but right now I can’t think of anything big enough that I remember it. I remember what is important, how incredibly lucky I am to get to share my life with such an amazing man. Nothing is better than knowing you always have someone in your corner cheering you on. To all my engaged friends out there: Plenty of people are going to warn you about how much work a marriage takes, they’re right, it is work, but it is the most fulfilling and meaningful work you will ever do.
