How Long has it been since your wedding? 2 years today!
What is your best advice for brides-to-be? Relax! and Smile. Also, if you are cutting corners, suggest not doing so on the photographer! You will regret it. We loved ours and are glad we cut corners elsewhere.
What is your best memory from your wedding? It is difficult to pick just one. Aside from being legally and in God's eyes married, close runners up would be seeing our entire families together happy and healthy. Our wedding truly would not have been the same without our ENTIRE families in attendance and there to celebrate with us.... the bagpiper who led us into our reception and the flowers were pretty amazing too 🙂
How IS married life? Any Advice for surviving the first year? Any Advice for surviving the first year? When they say the first year is really a test, they aren't kidding. Our first year was filled with unprecedented tribulations and family loss that made us truly realize our bond is much stronger than we thought it was. Couples who have it easy won't ever know how superficial or deep their bond may be. We are lucky, lucky, lucky to have each other!
Do you have any NEWS you want to share (pets, jobs, moves, babies, homes)? We got a second dog, a Wheaten Terrier named Scout. Danny became a lawyer and Mandy is once again getting back to focusing on her TRUE passion-writing: www.mandyschomas.com
