Newlywed Diaries: Overwhelmed

I'm married.
I'm a wife and I have the most amazing husband.

I don't know where else to start but by saying how wonderful our God is.
 Though we are undeserving of such grace, love and kindness, our God has showered us with so many blessings, with so many wonderful people in our lives {family and friends}, and of course has given us the sweetest gift to spend all of our days tethered to each other as husband and wife.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, 
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
but to give you hope and a future." 
- Jeremiah 29:11

Sitting at our kitchen table this morning eating breakfast by myself as my husband is at work I looked around me and started crying. I've never been this content, or satisfied, or this blessed in all my days. I thought being engaged was the sweetest season, but nothing can compair to starting a new life with my husband, Tim in our own little home that is filled with all that we need by all of the greatest family and friends. Many of these past days have been filled with the same joyful tears ... I've honestly never cried so hard because of being so happy.

 I know the days will come when we are up against the wall, no longer in the "honeymoon" stage, where marriage will test us and will be hard work. But for now, marriage is all that I dreamed it would be. It's been surprising the most natural transition I've made in life, comfortable, easy, and wonderful. It's different I tell you, but the best kind of different. Waking up to your huband praying over you as he starts his day, or constantly thinking about what to cook for tomorrow or the next day to feed two {who eat like a family of four .. because we're pigs}, or watching my husband do the dishes after dinner on his own will, or doing an endless load of laundry, or constantly working as a team in making plans, decisions, or purchases; it's truly the best kind of different.

I know, I know ... what about your wedding? 
Best day of my life!!! I'm still in awe of how wonderful our wedding day was and in due time I will share all the sweet stories, details and photos here. I honestly don't know where to even start with sharing the joys of our wedding day. But I promise to start soon, for now I'm simply overwhelmed with the joys of being a wife. 

Thank you ALL of the love, support, prayers, and warm wishes for our wedding day and our marriage ... from both near and far.
You all have made these days that much sweeter with your kindess and love. We are so grateful to be surrounded with such sweet souls.
 All praise and glory goes to our God who has made these days, days we will cherish our whole lives through.

Sincerely, Mrs. Remo


  1. Isn't that great to be now called a wife? I myself was having a hard time opening my eyes after our wedding. Once i opened my eyes, I saw the love of God and my long time prayer was just right there laying down next to me. That's why I can feel your over flowing joy! Me & and my husband will celebrate our 1 year anniversary this june and I still feel like we're still newly weds! Hahaha Adjustments to each other was a little hard but we did it! Now we can conquer the stinky - ness of the bathroom hahaha that's how much we love each other! So exciting! Congratulations! I'm dancing for you! Happy clappy slappy jumpy Mrs. Remo!
