Twenty-Five

Twenty-five. I’ve been Mrs. Matthew Ariñez for twenty-five days.

For twenty-five days, we have already had quite the adventure.

Day One.

We danced our night away with our best friends and dearest families.

Day Two.

We traveled to Latin America and sat by the sea.

Day Nine.

We survived cabin fever during the great Charleston flood.

Day Eleven.

We prayed that I wouldn’t be in so much pain.

Day Fourteen.

We relied on God and our family to get us through the pain.

Day Eighteen.

We bid adieu at the airport.

Day Twenty-One.

We held one another just a little tighter as we binge watched Netflix.

Day Twenty-Three.

We went to church as Mr. and Mrs. for the first time.

On this twenty-fifth day, Matthew left home around 5:45 a.m. and I won’t see him until I’m back home around 10:30 p.m.  I woke up just a little earlier so I could spend some waking moments with him.  It’s going to be a long day.  A little too long.

It’s been a marvelously challenging twenty-five days.  They’ve been plenty blissful though.  It’s fun having your best friend around all the time.  It’s a blessing to have someone who loves you keep you accountable whether it’s about a late night PB&J sandwich or saying prayer before a meal.  Marriage will be challenging, but I’m absolutely positive that it’ll be a blessing all the more.
