If there was a Belle & Union fan club, I can guarantee that the entire Southern Weddings team would be a part of it! Meg’s whimsical, Americana-inspired products are a favorite in the Southern Weddings Shop, and you may remember when she and her husband Josh gave us a tour of their darling Texas carriage house in one of the first Southern Newlywed features. We were so grateful that they shared their marriage advice with us in V6!
After being married for four years, I can hardly say that we have things all figured out, but what I can say is that we have learned how to at least try. Love is a choice, each and every day. There are days when we don’t necessarily like each other very much, but we still love each other. It’s important to remember that and to remind each other of that fact every single day. To communicate openly and honestly about what is on our hearts, even when what we have to say isn’t always easy. We have put each other through a lot in such a short amount of time, and when you add the separation of two military deployments, our marriage hasn’t been a cake walk. But, I think we both agree that at the end of the day, it is still worth it–we are still worth it. With a solid foundation of faith, the belief in grace and forgiveness, and a whole lot of patience and love, we get through this journey, together. And what a beautiful journey it has been and will continue to be.
