Waiting On Love

Hello Everyone,
Happy Monday! The start of yet another week!
As many of you know Tyler and I just passed the three month mark of our marriage last Friday! Many of you wrote to wish us a Happy Anniversary which was so thoughtful especially since I hadn’t even posted about it! You all are awesome!
But anyway I wanted to write to you all today about waiting for Mr. right and refusing to settle for anyone but him!
Every girl dreams of their fairy tale coming true and the day they walk down the aisle to their Prince Charming! Having done this a few months ago believe me when I say it truly will be the happiest moment of your life.
But this magical moment would certainly not be magical if the wrong person is standing at the end of the aisle! I know how lucky I am to have found my other half, people spend a lifetime looking for their person and I was lucky to find him at such a young age!
I had dated my fair amount of men before I met Tyler and although many of them were kind and will make great husbands one day, I know the only person who can truly make me this happy is Tyler.
Many of you write into me for dating advice or to tell me about that special someone! And that is amazing, everyone deserves someone who makes them feel unconditionally loved but don’t force these feelings or rush through enjoying a relationship! When you find Mr. Right you will know it, something will just, click and you will look at this person and know you will spend forever with them!
Like I said I know how lucky I am to have found Tyler so young but believe me when I say these feelings are worth waiting a lifetime for. You all deserve that unconditional love of the right person so don’t settle, and don’t force it. He is out there and he is worth the wait!
Love you all
Michelle

Learning when to say no (Guest Post!)

Hi everyone! My name is Tyler and I am Michelle’s husband! Michelle isn’t feeling well today so she asked me if I wanted to step in and write a little something for you all! A little about myself: I’m 21 years old, and I’m in my last semester of my undergrad studying sociology. I also work at a residential treatment facility for juvenile delinquents as a youth counselor, and hopefully plan to work there after I graduate. In my spare time I also stream video games to Twitch! If you’re interested you can find me at twitch.tv/ttrites

Michelle said I could write about pretty much anything today, so I decided to write about when to say no. One of the clinicians at work gave me some advice the other day that really stuck with me. She said “When it’s most difficult to say no, for whatever reason, It’s probably the most important time to say it.” This advice really hit home for me because in my line of work I need to set boundaries and enforce rules that the residents don’t always agree with. But, these rules are there for a reason, and they are being enforced for their own good.

I really believe that this advice is applicable to other parts of life too. Sometimes with things like peer pressure or other factors in life, it’s really hard to say no to things that you have a bad gut feeling about. Or you might know that it’s the wrong thing to do, but feel pressured to say yes for any number of reasons. It’s times like these where you’ll thank yourself later for going with that gut feeling, and keeping yourself safe.

Now don’t get me wrong, new experiences are what makes life exciting and sometimes really interesting. But if you get yourself into a situation where you really feel strongly that you should say no, you should! Follow your gut feelings, and trust in your own judgement.

I actually really liked doing this! From what I can tell you all are lovely people and I’m so glad Michelle can write for a community that is as nice as all of you! Hope to see you again soon!

-Tyler

The Reception

The first dance, the cake, the toast, the parent dances! All the magical moments of a reception! The ceremony was over, and we were finally married. Time to just have fun, celebrate, and enjoy the rest of the night with our friends and family!

We all arrived to the reception hall; we were announced into the hall filled with our loved ones, and then we danced. Our song was Thinking Out Loud and even though we may be the world’s worst dancers, everything felt right.

The toasts were next; they were given by my husband’s two best men. They were funny, smart, and witty. We took our formal photos smiled and laughed.

We cut our delicious red velvet snowflake cake. We had our parent dances, me and my dad danced to Vienna by Billy Joel and Tyler and his mom danced to My Wish by Rascal Flatts.

After this the dance floor was open, and everyone danced until the end of the night!

My wedding was perfect! From start to finish, I would not have changed anything.

I hope you have enjoyed the details of my wedding I have shared with you over the last week! This will be the last post in my Wedding series. But don’t worry I will be continuing to blog about everything else under the sun!

Tomorrow is our one month anniversary, Its hard to believe that I have already been married for a month! This last month has been incredible I hope you all find that one special person who can make you feel unconditionally loved, it is the most magical feeling in the world!

Love you all

Michelle

An open letter to my Husband 

My dearest husband,

I had a life before I met you. As you know before I met you I had my share of heart break that left me scared and scepticle about everything related to love.
I am not going to lie and say the moment I saw you everything changed but it didn’t take me too long to realize that you were the one who just might change it!
My bruises and scars from my experiences before you have long been mended. I was able to mend them with the realization of what I deserve! You gave me this realization with the way you treat me, the way you care for me, and the trust you have shown me.

My dear husband I look forward to our life together! Not just the happy parts but the challenges too! I understand that a lifetime can not be all smooth roads but I know that with you I will be okay. You make me feel strong with just a look and you make me feel peace with a simple touch of the hand! I know that with any challenges in life we will only become closer and stronger! I hope our lows are just tiny bumps in that road but I hope our highs send us strait for the stars!
I have hope that even when we are old you will still be the dorky boy who knows way to much about lords of the ring trivia and I will still be the quirky girl who accidentally dyed her hair yellow the one you met in the hall freshman year!
The love we have for each other now is so strong I can’t imagine a stronger love. But I have said that before and you continue prove me wrong each and every day as our love grows even stronger then the day before!
My dear husband I had a life before I met you but that was just life and this is life with love!
Forever and ever yours,

Michelle

The Wedding.. My Dream!

Hello everyone!

So sorry I have not blogged in the last few months! With the wedding plans my senior year and trying to have some sort of social life I have been BUSY!

If you follow me on any of my social media sites you know that I tied the knot! On January 8th 2016 I said “I Do” to my best friend and the love of my life! I have been loving my new life as Mrs. Trites and have been enjoying my happily ever after!

Since so many of you have been sending me messages asking for updates on what I have been doing or just to say congratulations I thought It would be nice if I could share some details with you all!

So my wedding day was perfect, it was actually more then what I had dreamed of since I was a little girl! The man I married is more amazing then any man I could ever dream up. He is the kindest, most loving man I have ever met. Not only does he make me happy but he makes me feel like no matter where I am I am home as long as I am with him I could never be lost! I hope you all wait for the right man because you all deserve to feel the way he makes me feel.

I’m sure that some of you who keep up with my life were shocked at the wedding date. Yes, it was supposed to be in September but sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you just have to go with the flow. We ended up planning an  entire wedding at a venue that was not practical for our needs. It was to small for the amount of people we felt needed to be there. So while we were on break from school we planned a wedding. Something that takes people months or even years to plan we got together in 3 weeks! and it was perfect!

Over the next week I will be posting a post each day with more details and photos of the wedding! I hope you all enjoy this, and thank you for all your love and support!!

 

Love,

The New Mrs.  Trites
