8 Months as Newlyweds

Adam and I have been married for 8 months today!

When I say that, it doesn't seem like all that long... in other ways, I feel like we've already been together for years.  That's not to say it feels like time is dragging or anything - in fact, I can't believe it's April. (Thank goodness it is because I couldn't handle any more of this winter in Indiana business.)

It's more that it is so obvious that Adam and I are perfect for each other that I feel in some ways he's always been here.

To say we've had an amazing 8 months of married life so far is an understatement.

We started our marriage with an incredible honeymoon in Italy.  We ran Adam's first half marathon together, and I won a truck (allowing us to pay down student loans, wahoo!) We've been to several terrific concerts. We had a ton of fun with Connor this fall, and we celebrated our first Christmas as a family.  We've taken some weekend trips, and we've been back and forth to TN a LOT! We survived cold and snow like we've never seen before.  And we've started enjoying warmer weather and are making plans for the summer.

It's not to say it's all been sunshine and laughter... we're definitely learning so much about life together, each other's personalities, and all that other stuff.  The good news is that most of the fights we have are incredibly stupid, haha. But the adventure so far has been so positive as we get to know each other better.

I don't even know how to put into words what it's like to know deep down that you found your person. That he is mine and I am his.  That I have my best friend.  That we have each other to love and support.

We dream a lot, and it's exciting to know that we get to make all our dream come true together.  We're starting to think about our move back to TN later this year (which can't come soon enough.)  We're talking about when we want to start a family (don't get excited... it's still going to be a while). We making lists of goals for the immediate future and 10 years from now.  Sure, we did a lot of that before getting married... but it's different now.

All that to say... married life is fantastic, and I couldn't be happier.  After years of longing for my person, sometimes I have to pinch myself when I look over at this man and realize that I finally have him!

Awww what a sweet post! I feel the same way, we will be married 1 year in May and I can't believe it! On one side it feels like yesterday, we went to Jamaica to say I DO and on the other side, it feels like I have been with my now husband forever. That's a great feeling - yeah!!
