The Wedding is Really Over...

So, today was the first day that James had to wake up before me, which is a rare occurrence if you know James at all. Mornings are NOT his thing. James kissed me good-bye and went to Neighborhood to work and I stayed at home. Its amazing that today is the first day I feel like I'm actually married. I think its because today was James' first day back to work and back into our normal routine, which is much appreciated. All the wedding gifts are put away for the most part; I've moved out of my home and all my belongings are now shared and vice-versa. Its a very weird feeling. Don't get me wrong, there are PLENTY of things that I have no idea what to do with and plenty of boxes that need unpacked and organized. But, besides all the clutter I'm pretty sure I'll be dealing with the rest of my life, I finally feel like this is my space too. I still can't believe it. All the 7 months worth of planning, stressing, coordinating, organizing wedding details, its over. And I can now enjoy the sweet taste of married life. I'm so excited to start a new life with someone I care so deeply for and love oh so much! I feel so free and loved, its unreal. I'm thankful to the Lord who knows my heart better than myself and he knew that I need this time of rest, freedom, and fun with my new husband. I know it won't always be this way, but I'm thankful for a few months of sweet marital bliss. :)

Thank you all for your love, support, and encouragement. We finally made it.


  1. Hannah-I am sooooo excited for you guys! Last Sunday, and all week, as a matter of fact, I just felt overwhelming joy and thankfulness for what the Lord had done for you guys. You made it! And you're right, these first few months as newlyweds are precious. I still remember our first few months together like they were yesterday. Such a fun, sweet, time being together and knowing it's good, and right, and we were WE.
    I'm thankful for you. You're just what James needs!:-)
    love you-
