My husband owns a home inspection company and I was watching one of his facebook love videos and began thinking, “I still cannot believe he’s my husband.” When I was young, I remember picturing how I wanted my wedding and often wondered who I would marry.
Would he be shorter than me?
What would his personality be like?
Would he be tall? How tall?
Blonde hair, blue eyes?
Then, when my husband messaged me on Oct 6, 2013, this dark-haired 6’1 guy was different than the rest of them. He sparked my interest because he loved health + fitness just as much as I did. He cared about his appearance, as much as myself.
Fast forward to almost 5 years later when I’m still in awe of being married. On Nov 6th, it will be 2 years and yet, I’m still in shock. I should no longer feel that way, but I do probably because he still amazes me and makes me proud. Do YOU ever watch videos of your husband or just sit there and stare at him? I still feel like I’m a little kid and in a way, I haven’t let go of my childhood. I can’t because I’m scared. Even though I’m fully an adult, part of me doesn’t want to grow-up despite being 28. This August, I’ll be 29 and then next year, I’ll turn the BIG 3-0 (ewww!).
Going back, I wouldn’t change anything about our relationship. We took a HUGE step moving to Tennessee despite being together for a mere 15 months. I was always fearful that we could potentially break-up at any point and we almost did. I even had doubts a few times, but it wasn’t enough to end our relationship and go our separate ways.
Is my husband perfect? Not even close. Am I?! Not even for a second, but we make it work because that’s what marriage is about. It’s about communicating and compromising. It’s about fairness, kindness, love and commitment. Plenty of marriage crumble because the two people don’t want to make it work. They don’t want to put forth the effort. But, if you feel as if he’s worth it, then put in the time and your relationship will continue to grow and blossom.
