5 Years

Today marks five years since I walked down the aisle and said “I do” to the man of my dreams! My favorite thing about being married is just simply being able to share life with Paul. I was single for over three years after I finished college. Those were some great times, but I wouldn’t go back to those days for anything. I love being Paul’s wife and creating a home for our family.

Christmas 2015 1

Being the list-maker that I am, I came up with five things I’ve learned over the past five years. 

  1. Having a family doesn’t always mean that you have children. Paul is my family!
  2. Marriage isn’t as easy as I thought it would be!
  3. Paul and I are not the same person. We are different people, created by the same loving God. It’s okay that we don’t always have the same opinion or want the same thing. We can still be a very happily married couple! 🙂
  4. Praying together invites Jesus into our marriage and helps us remember that His love is the basis for our love toward each other.
  5. Sometimes it’s just best to laugh about it.

I’ve also learned that my husband is a rock star on YouTube. He’s stealing the show in my Home For The Holidays series! 🙂 We celebrated our anniversary back in October with our #pw5magicalyears Disney Trip. Tonight we’re hitting Chick Fil A for another delicious meal, but I’ll be dreaming of the amazing celebratory supper we enjoyed in Epcot two months ago!

Disney Fun

Happy 5th Anniversary to my favorite person, my hero, my protector, my love!

  1. This is such a sweet post and such great marriage advice! Happy 5 years! I love that you pray together, I have been wanting to do that with my husband and we just haven’t gotten to it yet (sadly). I am a total list maker, too!



    1. We made a new year’s resolution/commitment to pray together each night before bed. It’s been such a blessing for our relationship – you won’t regret getting in the habit! Thank you for the anniversary wishes!!


  2. Happy anniversary!! So glad you got to go on a fun Disney getaway to celebrate this milestone. Great advice that a goo marriage requires hard work, communication and greatly benefits from praying together. Hope you have a great day and an exciting upcoming year 🙂


  3. Happy Anniversary. I love your points and you are right about not being the same person. Marvin and I are very much alike in many ways but every now and then we need to compromise on our opinions about something. Enjoy Chick Fil A….
