Six Months?!

Tomorrow marks six months of being Mrs. Parrett.

The day I married Weston will forever be the best day ever. Although it wasn’t the most traditional ceremony it was US. We wrote our own vows and just had a big celebration afterwards surrounded by our closest friends and family. We made the food, picked the flowers and prayed it would all go smoothly.

In one aspect, I feel like it happened yesterday but in other ways I feel like we are an old married couple now ;).

This half of a year has been more then I could have imagined… after dating for seven years I wondered how different marriage would be, but let me tell you, it’s so much better. Living with your best friend is so fun!! It’s a sleepover every night!! It has NOT been perfect, but it has been an amazing journey. Simple things like grocery shopping are so much more fun with a husband.

With that being said, I feel as if there is all this hype about getting married. People want the glitz and glam of finding a wedding dress and having a perfect wedding but they forget WHY they are doing all of that. Sure, planning a wedding was one of the most exciting, fun parts of my life, but the end result is so much better. MARRIAGE is a lifelong commitment. Through all the ups and downs, in sickness and in health… etc. Marriage is doing life with your best friend and you NEVER know what life will bring you. My prayer is that my marriage will be more beautiful than my wedding (and I may be bias, but I thought our wedding was pretty darn beautiful)!

Here are 6 reasons why I am so happy I married Weston.

1.    He is the most genuine person you’ll ever meet. If he says it, he means it, and he’ll do it.
2.    He is so happy! Like, the contagious kind that makes any day better.
3.    He sings to me… and when I say this I mean he sings to me at home, in the car, the shower, over the phone, etc. This kid loves to sing and I LOVE that he does.
4.    He’s super helpful. He cooks, he does the laundry, and he washes dishes! (Ok, ok sometimes I have to ask but who’s complaining?)
5.    He eats anything, which is a blessing when you are learning to cook and trying new things!
6.    He still loves me after living with me for 6 months. ;)

The Mr. and I both have off tomorrow AND he's planning something (sneaky sneaky)!!! Can't wait to find out :)

xoxo Mrs. Parrett
