I have been married for just over eight months. I can't believe that much time has already gone by. I honestly feel like our wedding day was just a week ago. In the past eight months, while there have been some hiccups, for the most part it has been blissful. I stopped traveling for work. J worked 14-hour days for nearly two weeks after our wedding. Christmas and Thanksgiving were spent in our home. Both of us lost our jobs. Within a month J had a new, amazing job. My unemployment time has stretched out to a bit longer than we both anticipated and the roller coaster of emotions that comes with unemployment has taken us on some interesting rides. Our beautiful twin nephews were born healthy. My brother came to stay with us for a month. My parents visited us twice and now here I am. Still job searching and still hopeful that a door will open. People have asked me if J is supportive of my choice to be picky about the jobs I apply for. My answer is a resounding YES! He understands that I spent the last three years doing something I enjoyed, but did not have a passion for. He understands that now is an opportunity for me to sift through the jobs that, sure I am qualified for, but would lead to another three years of having a job, not a career. For his understanding, his support, his prayers, his encouragement, his role as the breadwinner, his caring and his ability to pick me up when I feel like I can't take anymore, for all of this and more, my heart forever belongs to you.

Youre the love Of my life And the breath In my prayers Take my hand Lead me there What I need is you here

this is such a good post! We also had a rough first year of marriage- probably the hardest of our lives, so far! It only gets better ;)
