what I’ve learned in 6 months of marriage

My husband and I celebrated our “6 month” wedding anniversary on Saturday. I know, I know, it’s not actually a “thing” but it was fun for us to look through our wedding album, watch our wedding video and somewhat relive our day again.

What I will say about marriage - I mean because I’ve been married 1/2 a year and am a TOTAL expert ; ) - is that I have learned more about myself in the last 6 months than I have in the last 6 years.

1. I need forgiveness bad. 

I’m talking every day. I’m short tempered, not a morning person, I work too much & I’m very selfish. I’m grateful everyday that I have someone like Parth to know me fully and love me

2. I need to be better about giving forgiveness more freely.

Because let’s face it, I married a man who can also be short tempered, is too MUCH of a morning person, works too much & can be selfish.

3. When my relationship with God isn’t strong, my relationship with my husband struggles 

When I’m not reading Gods word and spending time with Him daily I’m way more selfish, short tempered and all around less fun to be around

4. Sharing finances is very hard. 

I’m a spender that married a saver. I’m learning tons of life lessons - like if you don’t get Starbucks or eat out everyday we can go on more dates & go on more fun trips!

5. I am way too busy.

I take on too much & then in the midst of it all realize I’ve forgotten about the one human that cares about me most. We have started sharing calendar invites to stay updated & on track! I need to make time to cherish my most important relationship.

6. I am more in love than I was 6 months ago!

Parth & I have been though so many changes - some really great & some not so great. & we have gone on so many adventures - some fun & some not so fun. He’s seen me at my best and at my worst all in these last few months. I could not be more confident in this moment that God made the right man for me.
