To be Married a Year

Today is our one year anniversary. 

Marriage is....hard. It's just plain hard. 

I'm not going to say that being married is always amazing. Because it's not. 
Sometimes he just makes me so mad!
Sometimes, I make him so mad. 
And when we can understand what the other is thinking? Goodness, that is frustrating. 

Being married is about learning to compromise and forgive, 
about showing charity and kindness,
about not having the last word,
about apologizing,
about selflessness,
about pure love.

Marriage has been such a learning process for me. 
And I'm so grateful for Jordan, for being so different from me,
for teaching me how to think a little differently,
and for loving me even though I think much differently then he does.

And marriage is great. 
I get to spend the rest of my life and the rest of eternity with my best friend.
The guy who makes me cry from laughing so hard.
The man who snuggles with me on the couch.
The man wipes away my tears,
who encourages me to pursue my dreams,
who makes me smile.

Gosh, I just love that man. 
He's amazing, handsome, sweet, strong, funny. 

To celebrate our one year anniversary, 
Jordan and I made dinner and just talked. 
Over skype.

Remember how he's in the military?
Well he's in Atlanta Georgia for training. 
And I'm in Texas. 

Our first anniversary apart. 
But that's okay. 
I still love him :)
