‘Ten Fo fo’ sho?’ 10.04.05 started dating, 10.04.13 got engaged, 10.04.14 tied the knot. Get it?
Today marks my 2 year wedding anniversary with my wonderful hubby! Last year, we were in Rome for our 1 year anniversary and this year we are in another one of my favorite cities- NYC (more about this NYC trip later). I hope this can keep up! In honor of our anniversary, I wanted to post about the top 5 things I’ve learned in my 2 years of marriage!

5. Spend quality time with your significant other.
Just because you live together does not mean that you are always around each other. Life is busy- make sure to set aside special time for just the 2 of you and learn to say no to events if that means you are reserving a date night for the 2 of you!
4. A little bit goes a long way.
Do little things that can make a big difference to the other person. Whether it is a chore or a small surprise or even a random note- save your last bit of patience for that person and it’ll go a long way!
3. Do your part.
Remember, this is an equal partnership- no one person should be doing everything. Learn to be independent so that you are not dependent on the other person for anything. Pitch in on things that are your strong suit that make you feel comfortable!
2. Respect differences and have an open mind.
This is something I learned very quickly in my first year of marriage. You have to remember that your way isn’t always the right way- respect the other way, learn from it and form your own traditions together as a family!
I know that sounds very cliché, but it’s so true. Use each other’s strengths to compliment the other person’s weaknesses and you’ll see that together, you’ll be unbreakable!
