Emily and I are gearing up for a fun V8 shoot with Jacin of Jacin Fitzgerald Events this week, so I thought today would be the perfect time to feature this talented lady in Sweet Tea Sunday. Jacin and her husband, Pat, seem like such a fun couple, and as you can see from Jacin’s favorite thing about marriage, it’s clear that they truly enjoy each other’s company. We definitely believe in marrying your best friend, so we loved hearing what she had to say!
My husband, Pat, and I have been friends for 15 years, dated for nine years, were engaged for one year, and have been married for four years, all across four states. My favorite thing about being married changes regularly, but here are some of the things I love most. Exploring the world with this guy who is an eternal optimist, adventurer, supporter, and my very best friend. Coming home after working a long wedding day to a celebratory glass of champagne together. Surprising him with his favorite meal. Taking our dog on walks together. Moving to new states together and meeting new friends. Laughing at the most ridiculous things. Family time (with his and mine). Road trips and running out of music on the playlists, so we’re only left with the most random, old-school, embarrassing songs on our iPod shuffles (Newsies or Neil Young’s “America,” anyone?). Buying our first house together. Always reuniting with the beach, salt air, and sand, no matter where we live. Enjoying the special memories we will cherish forever without the need of photographic evidence or likes on social media. Learning new strengths about each other while leaning on each other through each curveball life throws at us, but going through it all together. Together. I guess that is my very favorite thing about marriage. It’s the common thread in everything we do, every day. Being friends, dating, and being engaged was so much fun, but being married? That tops them all. I can’t wait to see what life has in store for us next, together.
