A year ago today, Nov. 6, 2011, Mr & Mrs. Long became official.
It’s hard to believe that we got married a year ago! This has been the easiest year of our relationship and we know we are blessed to experience such an amazing first year. Just before the wedding, I was offered the opportunity to work in Australia for a year. I talked to Adonis about it and I told him that I wasn’t going without him. He replied, “So, let’s go!”
I have to admit that I was very apprehensive about moving to other side of the world because (1) we had never lived together in the 5 years that we were together prior to getting married (2) we heard that the 1st year of marriage was the hardest, so I thought it would be risky to live in another country where we would have NO support and (3) we thought it was going to be a financially tough year because Adonis would be leaving his career behind. What if he didn’t find work in Australia?
My husband’s support has been incredible and I hope our kids see it as a great example in the future. Most men wouldn’t be able to do what he did and what he does. I love, like, adore, admire, and am inspired by my husband. In a way I’m a bit mad that no one else can actually feel the magnitude of love and admiration I have for him because it’s an amazing feeling and I want everyone to be able to feel these emotions … but then again, I am blessed in knowing that I’m the only person in the world that can feel this way for him.
Our first year of marriage was well spent:
- Traveling to Fiji, Thailand, Japan, and various parts of Australia
- Adonis joined the Victoria Gridiron League where he kicked ass every game
- We unexpectedly met amazing people, and so glad to call them our friends now
- Took four close friends around a few places Australia
- I even turned into a lite version of Adonis lol
- Etc. Etc. Etc.
