I meant to get this post up on Monday, like the title says. However, I worked late and then it took forever to get all of the pictures to upload. I’m a few steps behind.
Justin and Rachel got married this weekend; Matt performed the ceremony. I am reminded of what a powerful commitment that marriage is. I know that we are only married less than a year, but I feel good about the places that we are headed. I feel like we are on the same pages. That we’re headed to the same places.
I don’t know that we have ever had a fight. We’ve had disagreements, but even those disagreements haven’t been nasty. We talk about things. We’re open. We are working on our relationship. We aren’t working on it all the time, but we’re important to each other.
I am trying really hard to make sure that all the things I say about my sweet husband are positive. While I get upset with him…and I am frustrated now and again…no one really needs to know about that. Protecting our relationship — and him — is critical to the success and health of our marriage.
As Matt told Justin and Rachel before and after the wedding, he can only offer them the wisdom he’s gained in the last year. That’s all I can offer as well. It might well be that next year we’ll have something else to say about what is important to us in our marriage. Right now what’s important to us is taking care of us and making our marriage a priority.
…and I hope that Justin and Rachel took that advice to heart 😉
