Married for six months!

Man, I've been married for six months already? Time flies when you're having fun!

Cute with Dole Whip!

Andy and I started dating over four years ago. We had been friends (on & off) since 2001/2002. I was always attracted to Andy's personality.

He was so much like me. We are both shy and nervous about letting people in. I always felt comfortable with Andy though.

So I basically asked him on a date and we've been together ever since. Getting married was definitely a highlight but I think our future holds so much more.

When I was younger, my mom told me that it was important to marry someone who was your best friend. I always thought being best friends with a boyfriend was unnecessary because I've always had plenty of friends around. As I get older, I realize what she meant. In the past six months, I've needed a friend and a shoulder to cry on several times and Andy has always been right there.

We've only been married six months but we've already been to Italy, Las Vegas (twice!), Oregon, San Francisco, Virginia, North Carolina and San Diego. We've also dealt with unemployment, a death in the family and other things that would test any relationship.

But we've survived it and come back stronger than ever. I feel more loved than I ever have in my entire life. I have someone who will laugh at my stupid jokes, share my triumphs and encourage me to be the best person I can be. Who wouldn't want that?

So I encourage all of you whether you are in a relationship or not...to not be afraid of telling someone that you love them. Life is too short not to. I'm glad I told Andy!

Can't wait till our one year anniversary!

So tell me; are you in love?

(A food-related post will follow this one shortly. Once I recover from melting into a pile of goo while writing this post. Sorry if the cheesiness lost any of you back there!)

Beautiful post, Amanda. Your words struck me in numerous ways - specifically "the best friend" part. I better get out of here before I become a blubbering mess.

That candid last photograph is just beautiful. Without even knowing the two of you personally, it sums up your love perfectly I think. Adorable post!!

Ain't love grand? I too am suffering from it's strong hold. Not married though. I guess you can say that I'm "working" on it by being adorable and patient.... Mu ha ha ha! ;)

happy 6 months! I agree about marrying your best friend. I couldn't imagine my life without my husband now. I don't know how I lived without him!

Time flies indeed! I'm hitting the 5 year mark this year, still can't believe it.

Our first year of marriage, we dealt with my mother-in-law's sudden death, my father-in-laws quick remarriage, job changes, health issues, etc.

It's true that if you've made it through all of that already, you can get through anything together :) I also agree about the best friend part!

Happy 6 months!! I can tell you guys will be in it for LIFE!! :) I feel the same way about my Andrew. Deeply in love with him and he is definitely my best friend. We are a team.

Awww...congrats, you two!! Today is 1 yr, 9 months for us (not that that's really an anniversary) :)

I'm pretty hopelessly in love with my best friend too (we've been together almost 8 years now!); it's the best feeling in the world. Hope you have many more years of love, fun and adventures!!

This makes me happy :)

Happy 6 months to you guys! And you're right, marrying your best friend is so important. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Also, random question: Are those pineapple soft serve ice creams from Disney in your first picture? I am craving one so badly after seeing that :)

Awww, that is so sweet. I'll be married 6 years in May and it gets better every year. So wonderful to be in love.

Congrats! Time certainly flies fast when we are happy. A very nicely written post :). I love the first photo and the second to last/last photos. The ice cream that Andy is holding looks so large!

This is an awesome post! Congrats! I am married to my best friend too. He knows me better than anyone and I him. I could never have predicted the places life has taken us and I know there is so much more to come.

Keep up that traveling! :) There are few other things we would rather be doing. Although eating while traveling does come to mind. Ha!

What an adorable post! You two are so sweet together! I wish you many more years of happiness.

I also married my best friend 4 months ago and have been the happiest girl ever.
