Marriage Is More

I am so excited to finally share that my friend Kendra, who runs Sunshine In Her Soul, and myself will be collaborating on a marriage series! This topic speaks very dearly to my soul because I got married at a very young age in life. While it hasn't always been sunshine and rainbows, we've somehow made it work. 

My hope for this series is that someone out there can take a small piece of my advice and apply it to their very own marriage to help grow their roots in love. While I've been married for 6 years, Kendra is just about to hit her 1 year mark. So I hope that you all join our journey as we begin exposing things that we've picked up along this wonderful journey in life! 

So first things first.. what's the story behind the title?

Kendra and I met because our husbands worked together at Walgreens. Nick, my husband, started in the pharmacy as a Pharmacy Tech and Kendra's husband, David, was an Assistant Manager. Nick and David hit it off and before long we started planning double dates. I will be honest, when I first met Kendra I knew immediately that we'd be friends. It's so hard, as a girl in your 20s, to meet new girls. It's really rare that I hit it off with someone so well and already feel like I can trust. I was so excited when this idea came up because we both bring such a different view to the table when it comes to marriage. 

Today I wanted to briefly touch on the above title... Marriage Is More. Some people think that you find someone you vibe with, get married and settle down. Marriage is so much more than just "settling down". Truly making a life with someone can be messy. You have to learn that you can't always be right. You have to learn to be respectful of the other person's time. You suddenly become responsible for making sure this other person feels loved, wanted and needed. Along this series I hope to open up about some of the troubled times I've had as a young wife and how Nick and I worked together to secure our marriage. I am a very blessed wife to say the least. Everything I am is because I've had the support of my family and most importantly my spouse.
