What Marriage means to me
It all started with a cardinal’s game. I would say M and I fell pretty fast in “LOVE” if you will. He was “all in” within a month and was proclaiming his love for me. I guess I have that affect on people. I kid… I kid. We dated 3 yrs then I FOUND the ring and proceed to wear it when he wasn’t looking. Then he finally proposed and life threw us into a whirlwind of a out of state move, baby, family, death you name it, we went through it.
It’s easy to get caught up in the “wedding day” and not look at the full picture of marriage. Yes, my wedding day was the best day of my life (aside for having H)
After moving miles away from family and friends, our wedding day was more than perfect and just what our home sick hearts needed. We were surrounded by everyone we loved and…not to mention an open bar.
After a long night of dancing, laughing, cake and booze we sailed on our wedding day high for a few days then we drove our happy self home six hours away from everyone we knew and the marriage began.
Marriage takes work, it’s not always pretty and for the love of God it isn’t Disney. It’s more like Sex in the City if you ask me.
