183 Things I Love About My Husband After Six Months of Marriage


“If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves.” – Maria Edgeworth

6 months | 22 weeks | 183 days | 4344 hours | 260,640 minutes | a million + seconds

I still have to pinch myself sometimes, because it just seems unreal, being married. This week we will officially reach our 6 month milestone as a married couple. For some that may seem insignificant, but for me, it’s special. It’s special because when I look back on my life before I was married, I can whole-heartedly say that every single struggle, times of loneliness, heartbreak and times of doubt were worth it.  1000% worth it. I thank the Lord everyday for my husband and you know what? It’s true when they say that you will love them more with time. Within this short 6 months I have fallen in love with with him a hundred times over and sometimes for reasons I’ll never be able to explain.

In honor of this sweet little milestone, I wanted to share 183 things I love about my husband. I choose the number 183 because that’s about how many days are in six months and because 22 (weeks in six months) is just not enough and let’s be honest, 4344 (hours in six months) might be a stretch. 🙂 Well, here it goes…

Cheers to six months of marital bliss and re reading this again on our 10 year anniversary, October 8th, 2026.

Ultimate Honeymoon Packing List

Blog Graphic - Honeymoon packing list

The countdown is on! We are about 2 months out from our big day and I am so excited about putting together our packing list for our honeymoon to Mexico (did my Type A come out too much there? You can never be too prepared, right?).

I am one of those that likes to have options. Everyday my outfit is determined by what kind of mood I’m in that day. So how can I possibly pack for a whole week in advance?? Can you relate? Well that’s why I am creating a packing list, because I will sooo over pack if I don’t! Not to mention, I’ve never traveled outside of the country much less to an all-inclusive resort, so I have to be even more prepared and strategic on the necessities, while not packing up our entire bathroom and closet. I sure don’t want to be lugging around a big bulky suitcase. Ekk!

I believe her.

One night, while watching each music video on the country countdown Shania Twain’s From this Moment music video started. I was in love. I told my mom I wanted this song played at my wedding. It was at that point that I began dreaming of my day. The day that the man of my dreams would get down on one knee confessing his love for me and the day that I would walk down the aisle in a white dress to proclaim our love to the world. With this song playing of course.

Fast forward all of those years and my day arrived by surprise. Continue reading Saying Yes to Forever
