Memo to Newlyweds: Take It a Step at a Time
It's been a summer of celebrating marriage for our family. Mark and I celebrated 25 years of marriage just a few weeks ago and in a matter of days our second-oldest child will be entering into married life. The years of both marriage and parenting have flown by so fast.
Twenty-five years ago, Mark and I were so young and nave. We had starry eyes, big dreams and absolutely no money. But we loved, laughed and learned together, muddling our way into the real world and this thing called marriage.
Congratulations, Julie and Evan. There's so much you don't know. But what you know today about your love for each other is enough to get you through tomorrow. And you'll take this journey just like the rest of us: learning new things about ourselves and each another, one married day at a time.
