2 Months of Marriage

side note: this is my all time favorite picture ever. Check out Erryn Kowallis photography. Like seriously. 



Today my lovebug and I have been married for two months. 
I know, I know 2 months is nothing compared to 20 years, 15 years, even two years... But it's hands down been the best 2 months of our lives and that's really why I wanted to write this post. 

The world seems to look down upon getting married and starting a family at a young age these days. I can Truthfully say that i cannot seem to understand why. 

When I went to try on wedding gowns I remember standing in the dressing room getting zipped up thrilled to see what I would look like in a big white dress. The lady was asking me questions about me and my fiancé. I love talking about Hunter so I was really enjoying this experience. She asked when the wedding was and was stunned to hear how soon it was. She then asked our ages and her eyes almost bugged out of her head when she heard I would be a teenage bride. She immediately assumed I was pregnant, then asked if he was in the military. When I explained that it was simply our choice to get married young and only a few weeks after the engagement she looked puzzled and the conversation just kinda ended. That was the first of many confused looks I got throughout our short engagement. 

I remember laying down on my pillow several nights during our engagement wondering if we should have waited longer. I mean everyone else made it clear they thought so and it sure would've made for less explaining on my end. 
Well, I'm going to make this very clear... I am so glad we didn't wait! 

The first night Hunter brought me home to our first place I was trapped in newlywed bliss. I surveyed each wall trying to figure out where I would place decorations and was so excited to finally be able to cook for him. We layed down that night wrapped in each other's arms and I couldn't imagine how life could get any better than at that moment. 
Yet somehow, it did. 

I didn't have a job the first month of our marriage. I also couldn't drive our one stick shift car. Hunter was gone all day everyday and I began feeling pretty lonely. Our relationship was wonderful but we were only with each other and awake for like 3 hours of the day. I hated saying goodbye and even goodnight to him. I was a smitten new wife and I quickly learned that he was my biggest most reliable source for happiness and I just wanted to be with him every second. 

Each night Hunter would walk through the door my heart would race because I was so excited he was home again. Each night seemed to get better as I became more and more comfortable around my high school sweetheart who I thought I was already comfortable around. Our little life together quickly and easily became all that really mattered to me. My thoughts shifted over from making sure I was in the know about all the coolest new music, movies, shoes, and clothes to planning dinners in my head throughout the day and day dreaming about taking our future family for walks to the park. I'm not a perfect wife and I know I have a ton more learning to do, but I'm so glad this concept clicked so easily: Hunter and I are now a family. And just typing that brought tears to my eyes. We are one, and we are each others forever. The car is going to break down, we are going to be tight on money, a baby will one day be screaming in the other room in the middle of the night, we're going to get frustrated with each other, and there will be plenty of trials thrown our way... But we will always have each other and this is the one relationship that matters most. 

Hunter is my husband, but he is also my very best friend. I confide in him, I feel most comfortable around him, I laugh with him, and I cry with him. We have already made countless memories together that we can't wait to share with our kids one day. Some have been good and others have been not so good. Like last week when I ran to the bathroom crying because I felt so sick. Hunter found me lying on the floor in tears. I then threw up twice as he held his hand on my back telling me everything would be okay trying to comfort me in any way possible. He brought me to our bedroom and set up a movie for me to watch as he drove to two different stores to get me what I needed. He then stayed up with me until I was finally asleep. Even between the nausea, sore throat, and tummy aches I felt content because I had my husband, my best friend right beside me through it all. And that, is what I'm trying to say in this big, jumbled, lengthy post. I'm trying to say why wait? When you can have a constant support system, lover, helper, sidekick, and best friend right by your side for the rest of your life! Yes times do get hard, but getting through them together is a thousand times better than doing it alone. 

I for one, couldn't wait to be a wife and share this life with Hunter and accomplish things together. I can't wait (well but can at the sane time) to start our family together and experience the joys and challenges parenthood will bring. Yes, I'm only 20 years old (well on Saturday) but growing up and growing old with the love of my life was the best and most important decision I've ever made. I know we have so much further to go and so many more challenges are to be had, but we're in this for eternity and eternity is what we shall have. 

So anyways, Happy two month anniversary my love! You're all that I have ever dreamed of in a husband and Moore. Thank you for putting up with my grumpy days and doing the dishes when i get sick of them. Thank you for turning every moment into a party and for helping me satisfy my ice cream cravings. But in all seriousness, thank you for loving me, for being patient, selfless, and kind. I love you with all that I have and then some. 

All my love, 
Aleigh Joy
