Hard Moments From Our First Year

I decided to join in on this link up because I find it very interesting. Today's topic is Hard Moments From Our First Year of Marriage.

Richard and I are almost at our two year anniversary and I cannot believe how quickly this last year has gone.

We had a lot of adjustments in our first year of marriage. We bought our house a few month before our wedding. So living together was a big adjustment. But I think it was a good adjustment. I love being able to come home everyday and know he will be there.

The hardest thing in our first year was finding out we were moving from Minnesota to Louisiana. We knew when Richard chose his major in his undergraduate degree that he would need to go to grad school. I just was really hoping to not have to leave the Midwest. My whole life I had lived within 30 miles of where I was born and raised.  Both of our families lived nearby so leaving them would be hard. But Richard had faculty that knew the faculty at his current school. Like they say, it is all about who you know. So when we found out that we were moving across the country I had a really hard time coming to terms with it. I don't like change and moving to a completely new area where you know no one was scary to me.  My husband on the other hand was ecstatic. And don't get me wrong I was happy for him and excited that he was going to grad school and will come out with a pretty decent job. I just didn't want to move. I even at one point considered not moving at all and letting him just move. I know, pretty horrible. But I realized that was not going to work very well.

I dreaded moving up until we actually moved. Once we got here, I found a job and we started meeting people in his program and other grad programs. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. We have met some pretty amazing people and having this time for just us is helping us grow together. My husband even said to me last night that he appreciates all that I do so that he can concentrate on studying.

So that was the hardest thing about our first year of marriage. But once these three years are over I truly believe that we will appreciate this experience and will look back on it with only good memories.

  1. wow a big move like that in your first year would be so hard!

  2. I totally know the feeling being aways form your family. I moved 6 hours from my entire family when we got married, so it was quite the transition. I am so glad and thankful that you linked up with us and shared your heart. This type of post floating around in blogsphere was my main goal and desire when creating the link-up for the other Brides out there! I hope other women feel just as inspired by marriage as I did when reading your post! I hope you will plan to link up with us next week for question #3!
