Hello my loves, welcome back! So…great news. Today makes ONE MONTH since my wedding day, #TheMillerLove and I am in disbelief because time has been flying! I decided to just fill you guys in on how it has been going and a few extras. Keep reading, a lot of mushy lovey-dovey stuff ahead. Good luck!
What loving someone feels like…
It feels like joy on a hot summer day, with the sun shining down on your skin and the cool breeze blowing through your hair.
It feels like comfort and security and confidence when trouble arises.
It feels like bravery in the face of weapons formed against you, in the form of hate.
It feels like soft arms wrapped around your body telling you that everything will be fine because “they got you”.
It feels like God’s love shining through in human form.
It feels like lots of cuddles in the middle of the night and goodnight kisses.
It feels like not wanting to say goodbye, even though we’d see each other in a couple hours.
What loving someone looks like…
It looks like hands holding on to each other, ever so tightly,
It looks like arguments over little things but making up the next minute because it’s not worth it.
It looks like races to the bathroom, ‘double or nothing’ for the loser.
It looks like me winning ‘rock, paper, scissors’ to see who’s turn it is to turn off the lights at nighttime.
It looks like waking up early and letting the next person sleep a little while longer while you make breakfast.
It looks like phone calls on breaks just because you miss the other person and want to hear their voice.
It looks like working extra hours so that you both are living comfortably.
It looks like laughter and dance sessions around the house just because that’s what you both enjoy doing. (Dedicated to my husbae)
Loving someone else fully, is scary for some, especially if you’re afraid of being extremely vulnerable or of getting hurt because you’ve been hurt before. However, love is an amazing thing and I’ll always recommend extending your love to someone other than yourself. Most people fear vulnerability because of the stigma behind it, but for me being vulnerable isn’t a bad thing (check out this post here). I have always been a ‘sucker for love’ not only because it’s a beautiful thing, but because of the strength it takes to keep loving someone else, “in spite of”. As I reflect on my one month wedding anniversary, I’m in complete awe because I am genuinely in love with my husband and I’m so happy. Aside from the “Aww’s” and “You guys are so cute” in reality we are human beings just like you. We are imperfectly perfect and I’m okay with that. We argue over stupid stuff, but in the end, we try to understand each other’s point of view and learn and grow. That is not an easy task, but we have made a vow to not give up on each other because of love. *And honestly the make-ups are better than break-ups haha.
I know a lot of you are wondering and have asked me “how’s the married life going?”, so I’m here to fill you guys in (hopefully). Living with your better half is completely different from living with siblings/parents. You have to get used to doing things a certain way that is suitable for both of you. It has taught me how to share. Yes, as small as that is, I have been mastering the art of sharing (I can’t speak for Husbae though, he’s still learning haha). I have seen more of a side of my husbae that feeds my mind, body, and soul. He makes me feel like my worries are no more. It is important for newlyweds to not go into marriages solely expecting too much from their mates and remember that ultimately (and firstly) God should be the sole person we rely on for everything. We are growing with each other daily and relearning how to “not sweat the little stuff”. My one-month takeaway is that our love is undone, meaning it is still growing, still blooming and it is far from being done. I look forward to our love lasting years and years to come and never dying.
Keep up with me on my socials! I follow back!
As always…Thanks for stopping by! xoxo MJ.
