I debated the idea of doing a “six months in review” post, and Jamie was ALL ABOUT IT. Since he liked the idea so much, I asked if he wanted to do one too. He jumped at the opportunity to be featured on the blog. HA! Sooo, without further adieu, our reflections:
In the course of life days come and days go and most people fail to recognize many of the days other than truly marked occasions. Well, today is one of those occasions in the recently christened “DeSpain” household.
Today marks 6 months ago that Erica and I said “I do” and I have to say that its been the greatest 6 months of my life. Every person wonders when they’re younger whether or not they will find love and if that love will lead them to the person they will spend the rest of their lives with. Well, there are many times where I wondered that over the course of, well since the time I started dating. We’ve all had hearts broken and broken some hearts and True Love and Marriage seemed like a far off dream at some point. Well for me that dream didn’t take too long.
Proposing to Erica and pledging my life to her is the thing that I’m most proud of in my life. Since we’ve been married we’ve grown and learned quite a lot about the trials and tribulations of being married. The hardest part thus far is being apart. For those of you that can’t stand to be away from your partner for a weekend, quit whining. Try not being able to wrap your arms around your wife, hold her hand or give her a kiss goodnight. It’s absolutely excruciating to be away from the one I love.
Erica has been my rock these last 3+ years and I know she’ll be my rock until the day I depart this earth. Erica, here’s to us and a fabulous 6 months of marriage. To end this diatribe, if you’ve never listened to the Dierks Bentley song “Soon as You Can,” look it up on youtube. I basically says that once you’ve find the one you want to spend the rest of your life with you want the rest of your life to happen as soon as you can! Well, I’ve found my One and Only and I can’t wait for the rest of my life with her!
So, if you’re not gagging yet after reading Jamie’s “sappy” post, then surely you know this type of love.
If you are a close friend of me and Jamie or rather just a frequent blog follower, you surely know that our first six months of being DeSpains together have been anything but normal, to say the least! Here’s a run-down:
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to three little girls (ages 7, 4, and 1) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
