Exactly today, Clark and I have been married for 5 months but something else that is cool is exactly one year from today Clark and I had been reunited from him being on his mission for 2 years.
A TON has happened in the past year as well as in the past 5 months.
5 things I have learned from being married for 5 months:
- Time is not the most important factor to determine readiness/happiness of marriage.
- It is necessary to tell your hubby exactly what you want/feel/need because he can't read your mind.
- Being married is a lot more fun and less scary than it seems when you're getting married.
- Cereal really is one of the best, quickest foods to eat when you're hungry.
- Being married to your best friend is the best thing in the world.
