Two Years and a Lifetime to Go

“One of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything you are and won’t let you be anything less. They see the potential in you. They see endless possibilities. And through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way. As someone who matters. As someone who can make a difference in this world.” -Susan Colasanti

Year One

Growing up I was raised with images and the understanding that a “perfect” marriage, the best kind of marriage, is one that you spent the first year or  couple of years, traveling, getting to know each other as husband and wife, and supporting each other’s careers. These notions were presented to me in movies, books, and very few married couples in my life that actually chose this lifestyle.

If anything, our honeymoon phase of marriage lasted all but 4 months (that’s not to say we haven’t been happy since, we’ve been even happier)! 4 months before we were thrust into a married life as parents.

Many people probably don’t agree, and have actually made us aware that they don’t, with our choices, but would we change it? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Our first year of marriage blessed us with our son. Even though we had to stop thinking of ourselves, we have loved every part of putting Bryan first!

Happy 2 Year Anniversary

The honeymoon phase has faded and the realities of life, family, careers and responsibilities have set in. If anything our first two years have been anything but ordinary! If you think year one threw us a curveball, year two was even  crazier!

As if being newly weds and new parents wasn’t enough, this last year we’ve learned what it meant to sacrifice our needs to put the needs of our kids, yup I said it, kids (plural), first! We’re now 2 years into married life with 2 under 2!

In our first 2 years together, we’ve encountered a cross-country move, several career changes, opposite work schedules and 2 babies in diapers.

Your “Person”

“If you’re lucky enough to find this person, never let them go.” -Susan Colasanti

I was lucky enough to meet my person 4 years ago and just didn’t know it then. Tory made me believe I was worth it! He made me believe that I was special and meant to be treated in such a way. He encouraged me every time I doubted myself and supported me in everything I set out to do.

Happy 2 Year Wedding Anniversary to my best friend! He changed my life in so many incredible ways! I’m so thankful for him for always being my constant support, love and care! He gave me the world (and more) and he means the world to me!

Here’s to 2 years, 2 kids and a life time to go!
