I read this article on a friend’s blog the other day and it reminded me of my husband and how I should really strive to make him a priority. My husband used to always be number one in my life, but for some reason that changed.
When we first start dating, the man of our dreams seems to take priority. If you’re anything like me the world would stop when Scott called or texted or even just wanted to hang out. I would change my plans to make time for him (especially in the early stages). Literally ALL my free time was spent with Scott. A great example of this is that one time when we got married. Did I ever tell you that story? No?!
Well, here it is in a nutshell:
Scott asked me randomly (and very casually) on a Thursday morning at the end of January if I wanted to get married. Of course I said yes. He then left to pack a bag for our trip. A few hours later he returned to my apartment, bag packed & car running. He turned to me and said, “are you sure you are okay getting married without a ring?” To which I replied, “haha of course. I love you!” he then got on one knee and said “good, cause I got you one anyway!” and pulled out a gorgeous diamond ring! I cried, I kissed him, said goodbye to my sister and hopped in his car.
Our plan was to get married in a courthouse in California and honeymoon on the beach, but it was pretty stormy that January evening and so we stopped in Vegas. The next morning as we were walking around and random man named Marvin stopped us as we were putting money in the parking meter and asked if we wanted to get married (he made commission off the couples he took to the Chapel across the street). We took it as a sign and got married 5 minutes later in shorts & t-shirts and then hit the road for California!
There is a part of me that wishes our marriage license didn’t say “Las Vegas, Nevada” on it because eloping in Vegas is just very cliche. But it was all very spontaneous and romantic and I really loved every minute of that adventure!
