(top two are us from our wedding, last one of us from Madison's wedding)
Kyle and I went to KC for Madison's adorable wedding! It was my first time being a bridesmaid and I was so afraid I'd hysterically cry the whole time, but I did much better than expected haha. Madison's been my friend for 5 years, and it was the best feeling to see her so happy with her new husband. Seeing them and my other friends there who are either engaged or married made me appreciate my handsome husband even more.
I'm getting really tired of being criticized for being married young. It seems that everyone has an opinion about it, and more often than not, it's extremely negative. Obviously it's for some people, and not for others...but I don't understand why those who it's not for feel the need to assume that those who married young did it for immature or unrealistic reasons.
God loves marriage, and put no restrictions on age. People say that you should wait so you can experience life, but what "experiencing life" to people nowadays is drinking and acting ridiculous. No, I can't run around and sleep with college boys or go party every night. Instead, I get to come home to the most dashing boy on the planet, who has the best heart ever. It's not easy being a wife, full time student, far away from home, working, and only being 20...but things don't always have to be easy. You have to work and juggle things to get what you want, and this is exactly what I want. Everyone has different priorities and morals, and everyone has a perfect timing for marriage. Some people never get married, and that's fiiinnee. For ME, it was January 11, 2008. We didn't choose to wait until the "appropriate age." We'll have our 10 year anniversary when we're only 29, and it's perfect that way.
I know people will always have an issue with young marriage, just like they do about people "waiting too long". But seriously, look at my husband. He's so awesome and will be forever.
now we're going to go watch a movie in our bed.
