    What's the best part of marriage?
    The best part of marriage for me is just know that he's there. That at the end of everyday whether is was a good day or bad that I have someone to crawl into bed with.

    What's the worst? I think the adjusting was the hardest, which for us didn't happen until the second year, the first year we floated through, the second year is when real life started to set in.

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years? Our girls

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years? Buying a house, watching our girls grow, convincing DH to have another baby

    What's the best part of marriage?
    Having someone to turn to when things are hard or stressful. 
    What's the worst?
    Having to hear people ask me all the time when we're going to have a baby.
    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years?
    DH getting his teaching job. Even though it meant a move away from our friends&family, it meant a more stable income for us.
    Looking forward to in the next 2 years?
    Hopefully having a baby.

    Well I can't uplaod the most recent picture of us because it's more then 4mb and I'm too lazy to resize it. It's not even recent, it's from Christmas. We don't really take many pictures of ourselves.

    What's the best part of marriage?Marriage is the same as it was before we got married. So saying my husband instead of boyfriend. It sounds so much more mature.

    What's the worst? Mother In Law, but she was bad before. If anything it is better now because wife trumps mom.

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years? We bought our house

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years? Going to exciting places

    Favorite Wedding photo? I don't have photos on this computer

  • What's the best part of marriage? Knowing that I have someone who will always be there to support me and be there for me.

    What's the worst? I guess that people just assume you'll be making babies until you no longer can. I've had so many people ask when the next one is coming. Can't we just enjoy the one we have right now and just buy diapers for one? Do we immediately have to turn around and have another one?

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years? Chase

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years? Buying a new house

  • What's the best part of marriage? Everything. I love the security and planning for the far out future (like retirement and grandkids!) and knowing that he's there no matter what.

    What's the worst?
    Nothing really.

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years?
    Selling our old house, buying our new house, and getting PG!

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years?
    Having the baby and thinking about another one.

  • What's the best part of marriage? Being a team.  I often forget that I don't have to do everything.  Jay's there for me and I'm there for him.  We help each other and it often happens that when one person is just done/tired/worn out, the other one steps in.  It's awesome.

    What's the worst? 
    Being a team.  There are still some things I feel like I could do faster/more efficiently alone than with another person.  It's a balancing act for me.

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years?
      Hmm... buying a house?

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years?
      A kid.  But, like... holyshitshnikeymonkeys.  Maybe in a year.

    Here's a wedding pic:




  • What's the best part of marriage?
    The whole sum of its parts. Having someone who always has my back, to take care of me when I am sick. Having someone to love and support and to share dreams with, to take care of when he is sick (although he takes pitiful to the extreme :-P)

    What's the worst? Balancing the families desires to see us and we have it good! So I am not complaining about it. 

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years? Again I look back and I just see Joy. I love that. If I had to choose one thing I guess it would be the house, but it feels so material and doesn't really have anything to do with my marriage if that makes sense. 

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years? Having kids. 

    Favorite Wedding photo? Most recent picture of the two of you? No pics from me I am on my phone.

    Ha ha I made a comment to H that I will have 2 more packs of BCP (the 3 month kind). And you should have seen the look of terror on his face. This is based on his timing, but I think it hit him that's it's coming quicker than he realized!

  • Aggie - I tend to think of buying the house as the ultimate in teamwork for Jay and I.  We pooled our resources, strengths and weaknesses to make it happen.  Neither of us could have bought on our own so, in a way, it's a physical example of our ability to work together.  And it will continue to be as our house was built in 1910 and needs some TLC.

    And, I'm off bcp.  Last night, Jay said "who cares about condoms?" and I said "MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!"  Yeah.  Maybe we're not there yet.  Ha.
  • Oh i get it Joy, it's huge! A house is a big deal and it is an important life event in our marriage. And I really didnt mean to knock anyone who responded that way. I just personally feel it doesn't accurately describe what was best in our marriage.

    What's the best part of marriage?
    All of it! I love, as many have said, knowing that no matter what we are in this together. Through the ups and downs, we have each other to laugh with and to hold one another up.

    What's the worst?  I can't think of anything really....it took time to get used to living together and how each of us thought things should be done. I still hate how he balls up his socks when they are dirty. 

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years?  DS and now baby #2 - plus falling more and more in love

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years? Enjoying time as a family....our business thriving and FINALLY fixing our house entirely.

    What's the best part of marriage? Knowing he has to put up with me. Lol. I married him for the companionship. And the love.

    What's the worst? When we are tired we tend to bicker. But we nevere have a fight that lasts longer than 20 minutes.

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years? Moving to NC has been pretty awesome. I also loved the cruise last year.

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years?
    more cruises. More enjoying a better climate.

    Ask me stuff.
  • What's the best part of marriage? Shared bank accounts ;)  No but seriously just getting to see my best friend every day.

    What's the worst? Probably everyone asking when we are going to have a kid.  I don't appreciate my uterus being a topic of conversation.

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years? We bought our house!

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years? Hopefully having a baby ::knocks on wood:::

    Favorite Wedding photo? Us exiting the church.  My favorite part is DH's expression but it's hard to see when the picture is small.  He just has a big grin


    Most recent picture of the two of you? This is from our vacation to Mackinack Island last summer.  Honestly, I'm not sure if I have a more recent picture which is sad.

  • What's the best part of marriage? I feel like I have come to know an entirely different side of my husband the last two years. I always knew he would be a good husband and father but he has exceeded every expecation I ever had. I love watching him with Elijah, you can see the love they have for each other.

    What's the worst? DH work schedule has changed and he has been on nights for the last year. ITs been more than difficult, me going back to work made it even harder but we are trying to figure it out.

    Best thing to happen in the last 2 years? Elijah for sure!

    Looking forward to in the next 2 years? Buying a new house, hopefully having baby number 2!
