I am so excited about this week’s Sweet Tea Sunday, because the gal sharing her favorite thing about marriage is someone we’ve known for a long time! Sarah Jane was a Southern Bride of the Month back in January 2013, and a few months later, we featured her and Brad’s romantic beach wedding in V6 (you can also find it online here). Sarah Jane is as sweet and Southern as they come, and we loved hearing about how she and Brad have settled into married life!
Settling into our first year of married life has been a wonderful experience! Our wedding day was everything we dreamed and more…we still occasionally pull out the photos from our big day, just to re-live it all over again. That said, even the wedding of our dreams can’t begin to compete with the deep satisfaction that comes with the process of building our life together. The last year has been filled with the excited planning and hosting of our first holidays, working on endless (but super fun) home improvement projects, and countless little everyday moments. We have found so much joy in the little things, like taking a long walk with our dog or flopping down on our sofa at the end of the day, too exhausted to even talk–just happy to have a hand to hold. If I had to choose just one thing, what I love most about being married is the opportunity to be a part of this incredible, sacred partnership. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to take on someone else’s dreams and goals as your own, and then work together to make them a reality! It has also been really fun to see our home come together over the past year. Being able to see the evolution of our two distinct styles and tastes melding to make something unique (and even better!) feels very symbolic of the chance we’ve been given to merge our talents, flaws, and perspectives into this new life and marriage.
