March 1st was our 6-month mark.
I started looking back on the last few months. Most people say the first 2 years are the hardest, but so far it has been smooth sailing for us.
Don't get me wrong. We have our moments of miscommunication and hurt feelings. You get that with best friends too, not just in marriage. Those moments have strengthened us, making us learn more about each other, how the other thinks, and how we could be more clear in expressing our wants and needs.
It has really helped our marriage that we were friends first and love blossomed out of that. This weekend we went to Old St. Augustine. We walked around hand-in-hand enjoying the beautiful sunshine like we used to do when we were just friends. Minus the hand holding back then. It was so peaceful, we both wanted to fall asleep on the ride home. Josh was driving so he couldn't.
Everyone has their fears about marriage. I didn't want to turn into a nagging wife or live with a domineering partner. I am happy to report that we are still best friends and neither of those things has happened. I love him more and more every day for the man he is striving to be for God, for the friend he is to me, and being a husband I can trust. I look forward to many more years of serving God together side-by-side, loving the beautiful life we have been given and enjoying the adventurous ride!
