Holy TEN YEARS Batman!

My husband and I have been married for ten years! TEN YEARS! Holy shit! I know, right? We celebrated our anniversary on Thursday and it was perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing about it. 🙂 He posted the sweetest message online that made me sob:

Screen Shot 2015-12-19 at 8.15.05 PMMike and I got married young and while I think most people thought we were nuts I wouldn’t do a single thing differently. This adventure has been amazing but boy have we learned A LOT! So.. I thought I would share a few {non-traditional} lessons learned to all you kids out there wading through marriage.

  1. In order to be a good but effective wife – make him think he’s calling the shots. Key word: think. 
    • Note from Mike: This is definitely not how it works.
  2. They say that couples that pray together, stay together. That’s true. But I would also say that couples that shoot together, stay together. 🙂
  3. If you are genuinely committed to one another – it doesn’t matter if you go to bed pissed as hell because you know you love each other to death. You’re just both stubborn as shit and passionate as hell.
  4. Sometimes the in laws cause problems and it’s best to just avoid them for a while….on both sides.
  5. Just because you’re married {and have kids} doesn’t mean you aren’t still dating. Keep the it up! Go out, live a little.
  6. Eat well, drink well and do it together. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. That’s true but I’m a big girl and the same applies to me! I don’t know many women who would turn down a delicious meal. Just saying.
  7. Have a king sized bed (minimum). Snuggling is overrated. Sleep is important and if you don’t have enough room to get good sleep than you’re fucked.
  8. Talk. Sometimes you get too much into the routine of the week that you forget to do things like talk. Talk about your day, your passions, things that motivate you. Talk about your goals – personally, professionally, couple goals, family goals. Make sure you know what the other is working to and help work together towards something.
  9. Make new traditions as a couple and family. While bringing each of your childhood traditions to your household is nice – starting new ones is even better.
  10. Friends are important. Make sure you have them as a couple and individually. They help you reflect on the the good times, are there for the tough times too and always make new memories easy. We are lucky to have some pretty bad ass friends. 🙂
