1.5 year marriage update+insider family update
We’ve got 1.5 years down together and many more to go! Where does time fly? I’m sincerely thankful to God that Thaddeus and I were able to take advantage of every day. Each new day was another opportunity to build a stronger family foundation in the Lord. Each new day meant another reason to fall more in love. Each new day called for another chance to grow closer. I love each new day. Even the ones that were hints to start over again.
The entire month of May is a colorful one. First off, the grass and leaves are literally changing colors. The other two highlights would have to be celebrating our wedding anniversary and announcing the gender of our sweet baby. So much goodness is going on in our life right now! New ways are being made. Showered with blessings, we stay near. Doing life with my best friend is an absolute honor! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, darling.
After being married to Thaddeus for over a month, I begin to realize that he is a sharp leader. When we got together, I willingly decided to pass the torch to the head of the household. I know for a fact that there cannot be two captains on a ship. My willingness to lead still remains appreciated by my husband since I’ve been leading the Partikevich siblings my entire life. Both of us know exactly what we want from this life. We work together and will go the extra mile to help one another achieve our goals.
If there’s one thing to know about Thaddeus and I, it’s that we are actually more alike than not. We are both strong believers in celebrating every achievement. He helps a patient overcome migraines through chiropractic - we both rejoice. He has a bright idea for his next business endeavor - we pray about it. We feel the baby kick - we go crazy. I create a new topic to blog about - we get ice cream (or anything edible). I try a new paleo recipe - we (he) cheer/s. I guess that’s what you call being married to your best friend. After months together, one begins to think, to solve, and to act the same way. Ahh I love being married to “the one!”
Here, we welcome contrast. Having our differences is something that can be celebrated as well. For example, when Thaddeus closes the cupboards after himself - he saves the kitchen from looking messy (and makes me ecstatic). When he wears his barely wrinkled dress-shirt for the second time - we save time on laundry. When I organize our document folder - life gets easier. When I make an insurance call successfully - we get insured. Through our differences, we’ve learned about each other’s values. Did you know that just by “trying” to impress the other person, there can be a huge difference on whatever the outcome will be?! A failed surprise is so worth the laughs.
Our proudest strength is our connection. We connect on so many levels - spiritually, mentally, and physically. We have a connection where one look says it all. One touch feels it all. One word melts a heart. We trust without a doubt. Wifi stands no chance! Our ridiculous weakness has to be our pro-baby talk when there’s just the two of us. Trust me, it’s something we don’t want to get into because of the potential questioning. I’m sure that we aren’t the only ones guilty of baby talk, haha.
Speaking of babies, we are ready to announce the gender of ours! To be honest, we’ve been ready to announce the gender for over a month now. We just didn’t have the right photo that would do it justice.
We. Are. Having. A. DAUGHTER!!! We’ve been bursting with excitement! Our hearts get this warm, fuzzy feeling every time we think of our baby girl! We are seriously in love with her! We cannot wait until August 18th to finally meet our beautiful baby girl. This is a blessing beyond measure. She stole our hearts.
Our family of three has a goal of making the most out of this brief gift, called life. We wish to make every day count for the future by making every moment of the day a highlight. We will empower our daughter to do more in life for the kingdom of God. The people that surround us will know what it’s like to have a place for God in their hearts. We will resemble Christ in every way possible. With His help, of course.
Thank you for getting to know our family better. We would love to know more about you as well! Comment below what you love most about your family.
