This post is also late.
One year ago, on July 2, 2011, I married the love of my life.
Now a year later I can say we've lived in four different states (MI, IL, MO, and KS, for those that are keeping track). I can also say we've had our ups and downs. The Army has taught us a lot about patience and compassion. We've learned how to fight effectively. We've learned how to be flexible and understanding. We've learned that time is precious and we need to make the most of the time we have together. We're no experts on marriage, that's for sure. I do feel however, that we might be learning some lessons faster than most people do. I mean seriously, can anyone else say they've lived in 4 different states in their first year of marriage?? Talk about testing your relationship...I'm still surprised we didn't kill each other after that last move. But isn't that what marriage and love is all about? We promised to stick by each other through the good times and the bad. We said we'd put the each other's needs before our own. We promised to love each other forever. Even though we've faced a lot of challenges this year, I am so thankful to have Hubs on my team. He's amazing.
