love & commitment

This past weekend I witnessed one of my best friends marry the love of her life and I couldn't be more happier for her. It was one of the most beautiful weddings I've attended and I'm not just saying that because she's my friend. It was the biggest day of her life and I was so honored to be a part of it.

Let me just say that weddings make me cry and I'm sure the same goes for almost everyone. Yes, I shed some tears here and there, but the most beautiful thing about that day was how inspiring the two of them were. They've been together for more than 6 years and have been through their ups and downs. To see them profess their love for each other in front of everyone and to make a lifelong commitment was simply amazing.

The idea of marriage scared me before. I used to think it was all about being in love and having a perfect relationship. After going through a rough patch with my boyfriend last year, I quickly learned that there's more to it than just the lovey-dovey stuff. In my opinion, nothing is perfect when it comes to relationships and marriages. What makes it beautiful is going through the good and the bad and still being able to look at each other at the end of the day and say "I love you!" 

"Love one another and be happy. It's as simple and difficult as that."

Congrats to the happy couple again!
