Lately, I have been wanting to do more date nights with Brandon. Between him working full time and now that I have a part time job with lots of hours different each day, our time spent together has decreased drastically; hence more date nights.
Yesterday, I had the day off and a perk of Brandon working from home,, he was able to take some time off during the day for a date. Since Tuesday is cheap movie day, we went and saw a movie and then went and used one of our gift cards that Grandma Laura (Brandon's grandma) gave us for our anniversary.
After last night, it really made me realize how much we need to make date night a priority. Between both of our jobs and there already being nothing to do where we live, this is just what we need to do.
One year and counting! This time last year, we were sitting in the Celestial Room of the Payson Utah Temple, waiting to be sealed to one another for time and all eternity.
Marriage is no picnic. Marriage is two people who fall in love so easily and then year by year have to learn how to grow together, respect each other, and put up with each other's weaknesses. And our first year of marriage, was far from easy. Everyone who says that the first year of marriage is hard, are completely right.
We had our good days. We had our bad days; more bad days than I wanted to have. We stressed and worried more than I expected to for our first year. Yet, I wouldn't change a thing. At the end of the day, all that matters is that Brandon and I survived our first year and our ready to tackle our second year of marriage and can't wait to see what happens.
Have you ever noticed how Mormons are so eager to share what they believe? It's not an effort to push religion on people, rather to share the JOY (I loved how a lot of the talks mentioned joy) and HAPPINESS that comes from the gospel. I would love nothing more than to share the joy I feel from living the gospel of Jesus Christ. This past weekend was an amazing opportunity to learn more about what we believe as we hear from the prophet and other leaders of the church. If you're curious about what Mormons believe, click here. Also, never hesitate to ask me about my beliefs. :)
P.S: Can you tell from all of the pictures below that my husband was in a picture taking mood this past weekend?
