Today, five years ago I married my best friend. WOW! It is so hard to believe as time just slips away and here we are. To celebrate our 5 years of being married I thought it would have been fun to do an interview post for you of questions I ask my hubby about our 5 years of marriage BUT…. this past week has had its ups and downs and with my hubby finishing his class and exam for school today I could only pop in one question and the response was hurried and he agreed to an interview for our date night Saturday.
Until I can get an interview rounded up with him here are some pictures from us over the years as well as what I have learned these past 6 years (5 being married as we dated for a very short time and had an 8 month engagement).
On our honeymoon in Williamsburg, VA before eating at a 4 star restaurant I believe was called Blue 2009.
Our coffee shop dates are less frequent but we still love some coffee shop dates here and there.
Before driving away as newly weds on our wedding day!
Young love 🙂

What I have learned as a wife:
-to trust in God and stop worrying (this is a HUGE struggle for me daily).
-to slow down and not be such a busy bee (I used to be cleaning the house up and down while the kids and my hubby were around and it drove my hubby nuts as I actually accomplished nothing but the mere fact of worrying about what the house looked like and so ignored my family). Now I have gotten better.
– to allow my hubby to do some game shopping for his iphone game as he doesn’t demand any other gifts.
– to pray with my husband as much as I can, almost daily.
-my hubby appreciates snuggles
-have date nights as much as possible
– not to yell at the kids or bark orders but to instead discipline with a more firmer voice and offer consequences (my hubby dislikes it when I am yelling at the kids when I am stressed).
-hold each other accountable and tell each other everything, even if it hurts (even if it takes months, don’t hide feelings it only causes resentment). In this be understanding as much as possible, loving and forgiving or offer to fix things.
– keep God the center of the marriage.
There are probably many more but this is what I can think of now. I love you Chantry! I can’t wait to spend another 5, 10, 15, 50 years with you!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! My hubby and I sure can’t wait to have some “us” and “alone” time Saturday that is for sure.
