Our Happily Ever After by Amber Normand

It has been almost two months since my now husband and I said “I DO.” I have to admit that it has been a pretty amazing journey so far, and we have been enjoying every minute of it.  Our home is finally back in order and all of our generous gifts have been put away. Reality has really hit and our hectic lives of work and life in general, have started, once again.

Our honeymoon was amazing and we are hoping to maybe revisit on our five year anniversary. We have been back to work and have been back to the reality of everyday life. While the almost two months of our marriage has been amazing, I have also missed planning our wedding. I never thought that I would say that, but for fifteen months I put all of my energy and spare time into planning and now I almost feel bored. I think that it’d actually turned into somewhat of a hobby for me, although I didn’t realize it at the time. I guess that it was sort of a creative outlet that helped me to escape the craziness of everyday life.

About a week ago I got our wedding pictures back. It was so exciting to sit down to look at pictures and relive the best day of our lives. It felt like we were both back in that moment. I got teary eyed thinking about that day. All of the love that surrounded us was amazing. It was great to spend such a special day with those closest to us. After our wedding, we received so many compliments from people telling us how beautiful and elegant our wedding was. It is so nice to know that our guests had such a great time and we definitely enjoyed the company of each and every guest. We got to visit with family and friends that we hadn’t seen in quite some time. I wish that it never had to end, but now we get to spend the rest of our lives together. It is such a blessing.

Every day that we are together is special. Several people have asked us “So, how does it feel to be married?” and “Do things feel any different?” To me it does, and I think that my husband would agree. When you’re married, so much changes. You talk about having a family of your own one day, you learn to adjust to things that you wouldn’t normally have to and you learn so much more about the person that you vowed to love through better or worse.  My husband and I were called together and to be married and it’s a wonderful feeling.  In such a short amount of time, we have grown so much closer and our love for one another grows stronger each day. Our happily ever after is just beginning and I cannot wait to see what is in store for us in the future. I want us to be able to treasure every beautiful moment and when things don’t quite go our way, we have each other to lean on. I not only married my soul mate, but my best friend, also. I know that he will always make sure that I am taken care of. When I think of our future, I get so excited, because I know that we have already and will continue to have a great life together. Our wedding day will forever live in our hearts and we have the photos and memories to carry on.

Here’s to the future!
