It’s official: wedding season is in full swing! Last weekend, I spent Saturday at a bridal shower and Sunday at a wedding. Weddings are very emotional for me because I can’t help but think back to David’s and my wedding and reflect on our relationship. I cry at every wedding I attend. I can’t help it!
David and I got married in the fall of 2015, so we are still technically newlyweds. Did you know that couples are considered newlyweds for up to FOUR YEARS after they’re married? That seems a little long to me, but then again David and I have been together since 2009. We recently celebrated our 8-year dating anniversary back in April!

Our relationship has changed a lot over the years. We met the summer after I graduated high school but didn’t start dating until two years later. We went through a lot of “firsts” together. Today, our relationship is stronger than ever. I love wedding season because it gives me a chance to reflect on how far we’ve come.
Speaking of David, he is writing with me today!
This is us! Photo cred to Kendra Dolson at Little Blue Bird Photography.
Amanda: I wish you all could see the silliness that is already happening over here in our living room! Maybe we should have done this in a video format.
David: No thanks. It’s a little soon for a video of me.
Amanda: David and I have gotten a lot of comments over the years about how we are a “model couple,” but it hasn’t always been that way. Our relationship has taken a lot (I mean A LOT) of hard work to get us to the point we are at. Today David and I are going to talk about the six most important lessons we have learned to have a rock-solid relationship.
