I am slightly addicted to Pinterest at the moment. I mean, who isn't? It's so neat to me how that little website took off so quickly and how much its grown. I absolutely adore everything about the site and any time I need any kind of inspiration, it is my go to.
Well, I have been a lot more committed to writing on my blog. I really enjoy having a creative outlet where I can speak my mind and just talk. So, I was pinning away this morning and found this challenge and thought I would give it a try, just to have something to actually bring the the blogging table every day. So, I will start this today. Here we go.
Day one: Your Current Relationship
If you missed out on my awesomely long post about our love story on Valentines Day, you can read about it here.
I know its super duper long, but I couldn't break it up into 2 parts. I just started writing and got really caught up in the emotions of it. I think its such a beautiful story.
On with it.
I was single for the first 20 years of my life. Upon meeting my husband, I had never been kissed, courted, dated, pursued, nada. I used to think that maybe I wasn't pretty enough, or popular enough, or to fat. Looking back on it, I think I was just being guarded by the Lord. He totally protected me from being broken hearted in high school, and for that I am thankful.
Ryan and I met, dated, broke up, dated, got engaged, and got married all within 3 years.
Being in a dating relationship was much different to me than being married is.
Ryan and I lived at least an hour from each other for most of our relationship, so we only saw each other once a week, which was super hard.
A few weeks before we got married, we had to make a hard decision about our future living arrangements, and decided to forgo our apartment to save money since Ryan didn't have a job yet. So, we moved in with His parents. We are currently still living there, and its not bad, but its definitely time to move out.
Being the newlyweds that we are, we like to do things a little different than say would be appropriate with the parentals right next door. (I will leave you to imagine whatever you are imaging. HA!)
We have been married now for 2 months and 6 days. It has been a very interesting/crazy/awesome/exciting time for us.
Going from seeing each other once a week to seeing each other every day has been quite the adjustment.
Going from living on your own for the past 6 years to living with parents again, is a very different thing for me to experience.
Sharing money is hard.
Talking out things is even harder.
Not over sharing all your feelings is a good thing.
Learning to communicate better is great.
Being patient is a must.
All in all, we are very much in love, but people weren't kidding when they told us that this would be hard. Durn are they right!
I'm so thankful for girlfriends to talk about the silly stuff with and the Godly marriages in our life that we can look to for wisdom and direction.
So, that's the state of my current relationship.
Please pray for us as we begin our moving process. We will be moving into an apartment at the end of April, beginning of May. Thanks for the continued support from the people that love us. We love you too.
Praise the Lord this week has FLOWN!
Tomorrow is Friday!
love you people.
