A Little Marriage Reflection and Casual Lace








Warning: mushy post reflecting on a few things about my still-oh-so-new marriage to follow...

As of tomorrow, Tony and I have been married for a year-and-a-half and it has been, hands-down, the best year-and-a-half of my life. I am so proud of us and where our relationship is today. Our marriage has been packed full of highs and lows, and navigating this still-new life we are living together is something I find myself constantly working on. We have dealt with so many transitions in such a short period of time and that isn't always easy. Because of these transitions, I have come to realize how important it is to step back and fully evaluate everything we have gone through (good or bad) and appreciate the growth we have had in-turn. I have found that taking a moment to build each other up in appreciation for how far we have come together is such an important way to nurture our relationship. Our growth as a couple and keeping God at the center of our marriage gives me hope in this world where marriages seem to be disposable. We have come out of every challenge stronger and I am so thankful for that. It is such a sweet thing to be able to watch each other grow into a husband and a wife. Because we are not born into these roles, it is something that should be forever cherished and appreciated. My husband is such an incredible man. He is so kind, patient, loving, understanding and supportive (just to name a few). I cannot begin to express the gratitude and love I have for him. I am so excited to see what the next year-and-a-half holds for us and the next 100 years after that.

This teal tunic is great to throw on for a casual day. It is so lightweight and soft. It will be a great piece to layer with when it gets a little cooler. The lace detail down the back makes it a bit more special and for only $23 you can't really go wrong. Being so thin, it is a bit see through, but nothing that can't be fixed with a little cami. I, of course, have it paired with my favorite ankle jeans and transitional wedges here, but it is plenty long to eventually wear with leggings and boots. Bring on the cool weather already!!
