Today marks Ian and I’s second wedding anniversary, and to say the past 2 years have gone by quickly is an understatement, I think I blinked and it was over.
729 days of marriage, and the best is yet to come.
On Saturday I attended a bridal shower where we all had to go around and give 1 piece of marriage advice for the soon-to-be-bride, and these were a few of my favorites:
- 1 -
Compliment each other every day.
In our day-to-day lives it’s so easy to get caught up and become comfortable with the one you’re with, but a simple compliment goes a long way.
- 2 -
There is usually humor in every situation. Make the most of what God has given you and learn to laugh with one another.
- 3 -
This is God’s best for you.
When times are hard and you don’t feel like loving your spouse, Remember that this is God’s best for you. Our Father doesn’t make mistakes, He knew long ago that this was the one for you, and that you two were meant to be together.

Always look for ways to serve one another.
When you hate each other and serving one another is the last thing you want to do, it should probably be the first thing you do. Now that you’re married, you get to serve one another. It’s a joy! Treat it as one and look for little ways to serve one another.
What is your 1 piece of marriage advice you’d give a bride-to-be? I’d love to hear it!
And Bubba, happy 2 year anniversary! I know, without a doubt, that although the past 2 years have been incredible, the best is yet to come.
