Six Months.

April 2, 2014

We celebrated our six month anniversary on Saturday night by opening the bottle of wine that we purchased on our honeymoon in Sonoma and I made dinner for Peter. When I was working on my 101 in 1001 list and added #48, I didn't realize at the time how much Peter would really help me cook on a normal basis. He enjoys it and I enjoy his help so much. Plus, having him around in the kitchen a lot is fun.

After our busy Saturday of running errands we had a little break of rain which was unexpected. Peter worked in the yard and I painted the chicken coop so by the time dinner came around he was relaxing in the living room while I started to prepare dinner. He asked if I needed help but I gladly said no. I wanted him to rest and I also wanted to make dinner for him. He is always so helpful around the house and I really appreciate that, so it was really nice to do something for him and just let him sit back and enjoy it. By the time dinner was ready it was time for him to open the bottle of wine. Then we sat down and enjoyed our dinner and wine together. The dinner wasn't anything fancy, just some ravioli that I picked up from Costco and a can of sauce from Publix; simple but definitely tasty. And the wine (B.R. Cohn2010 Sonoma Valley Zinfandel) tasted even better than we remembered!! 

& here is the fun story behind those gorgeous flowers since I’m sure you are wondering! ;)
Tulips are my favorite. They are such a happy flower and they have always made me smile. I came home from work on Friday to find a vase of tulips and a card waiting in the kitchen. I gasped, looking at Peter thinking he has done the unimaginable, (he isn't the buying flowers type) and he flashed that sneaky grin and said they aren't from me! I grabbed the card with confusion and read it while tears filled my eyes. My sweet friend all the way in Missouri sent me my favorite flowers for our “Half-A-Versary” and I could have burst. It completely made my day. Not only am I blessed with this amazing man as my husband but I also have some equally amazing friends. Thanks Cassie & Matt for the beautiful flowers - we loved them!!! 

During the last six months of marriage I have learned a lot. Some big things and some little things, but through all these things I know with my whole heart that this marriage is good. It is such a wonderful blessing in our life and I’m so thankful for it. We work hard to love each other but that can be easy after only six months of doing it as husband and wife. My prayer for our marriage is to never stop learning together and loving each other on purpose. During the many years in our future together I know there will be ups and downs but I want to try my hardest to love and appreciate the man that the Lord has given me. Six months is nothing in the grand scheme of things but it has been absolutely everything to me. 
I'm so thankful!
