How we Celebrated our First Wedding Anniversary

We celebrated our first anniversary on Sunday, May 7, 2017. I cannot believe how fast the year flew by! I know a lot of times the first year is considered the ‘hardest’ and in some ways, it was not easy but in other ways, it was truly one of the best years of my life. I love being married (most of the time (; ), living with my favourite person, having late night pillow talks and just doing life together (who knew grocery shopping could be so fun (; ).

To the ladies in waiting… You deserve better

I recently read an article by a man on a popular Christian magazine site giving advice to the ladies in waiting. To be honest I thought his advice was a lame excuse for men choosing to act like adolescents and waiting for a woman to fix their problems. I fear this sends a message to women that men have pretty much just given up on maturity and you must take the lead. To this I say wrong! Please don’t settle for a man-child, because real, godly, mature men still exist.

And Baby Makes 3 Newlywed Reflections~ Month 10

I realize my last post was a little bit on the sad side, looking back I realize my hormones were going crazy during that time and as a result, my perspective wasn’t the clearest.

I also had a super busy week full of meetings, assignments, presentations and just trying to make it through to reading week. Thankfully I made it to reading week and spent most of the week relaxing, puking and trying to keep down food :p

Overall the break was much appreciated even if I wasn’t feeling the greatest! I also realized how important it is to prioritize self-care and not procrastinate on my assignments. I’m working on taking more downtime for myself, whether that’s reading, taking a bath or going for a walk and starting early on my assignments.

Being Married Young is Hard Newlywed Reflections~Month 9

Blogging is a platform to share one’s story. Over the past 9 months, I’ve been sharing snippets from my experiences being married. Although being married brings a lot of wonderful times, the last few months as I’ve shared have been hard.

At times I find it difficult to stay positive and feel hopeful for the future. Maybe you’re married and you’ve found yourself in a similar situation. It seems that for other people life is looking up, but for you, things almost seem to be getting worse.

The Only Good Thing Newlywed Reflections~Month 8

I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” Psalm 16:2

Sometimes it feels like life won’t stop throwing snowballs at you. I know that sounds like a terrible analogy but it’s winter and we’re going to roll with it. I think we can all relate to feeling discouraged and overwhelmed at times with our circumstances. Too often I focus on the negatives in my life. I don’t want to do that here. Instead, I want to share how I cope with the less than ideal parts of life.

Thoughts on Singleness: How I Conquered Feeling Lonely, Unwanted and Not Good Enough

I write a lot on this blog of marriage and my experiences being married. I write about this topic because it’s relevant to my life at this point. However, before this current season, I spent a lot of time being single.

I’ve written a few posts about those days: Just Wait, When Everyone Else is Getting Engaged and Encouragement for Single Women. Although those were not the most favourite times in my life, they were necessary.

One lesson I learned was to be content on my own.
