Here's to Six Months

Happy Monday sweet friends!!
Christmas is only 2 days away which means today is my birthday! I have a love/hate relationship with being a "Christmas baby," but that's a topic for another day. We have fun things planned for today, so right now I'm a very happy Christmas baby!!

As of yesterday James and I have been married six months!
It's been six months since I woke up and spent sweet morning moments with just my mom and sister before everything got crazy. Six months since I laughed with my closest friends all together in one room. Six months since I rode on a carriage with just my dad talking about football because what else do you talk about when you're about to get married. Six months since I stood behind two big doors shaking uncontrollably with my dad's hand on my arm telling me to just breath. Six months since those doors opened and everything was okay. It's been six months since I made the promise of forever to a man I'm a huge fan of!
Six months ago I had no idea what the next six months would hold. I had no idea how good the good days would be, or how tough a few days would be. I had no idea my husband would sing all the words to my favorite songs wrong. I didn't know he would ask me to dance whenever I'm in the kitchen making dinner. I had no idea how selfish and stubborn I would be, and I didn't know something that would make me cry one minute would make me laugh the next. I didn't know just how important it would be to lean on God.
I'm so very thankful for these last six months. I'm thankful for the silly times and the hard times. I'm thankful for the times we laugh until cry, and even for the times we argue because learn more about ourselves and each other. I'm thankful I know James' "buttons" and even more thankful when I don't push them on purpose! I'm most thankful that God brought this incredible man into my life and that I get to know what this kind of love feels like.

Here's to the next six months!
