I must apologize for my extended absence! I must say I have been a very busy girl, most recently I have started grad school!
I was offered a full assistantship! Allowing me to go to school as well as get a great experience of working as a Teaching Assistant, enabling me to teach classes, and do some real world hands on research!
I just finished my first week, and so far I have no complaints, it is so nice being back to school.
Me and Tyler also through a celebration of our marriage, a second reception! As many of you know our wedding ceremony was planned ver quickly and even though it was fantastic it was very nice to have a bigger party that all our friends and family could attend!
It’s been a crazy and fun summer!
I am hoping to get back to you all more regularly; I am going to make an honest effort! I miss all of my web friends! Let me know if there is anything you want me to touch upon in the next few days!
Talk to you all soon!
Lots of love,
So today I want to write to you all about embracing what life has in store for and just going with the flow! I must admit this has always been a struggle for me I love planning!! I plan everything even a movie night at home…its planned!
But if my husband has taught me anything it’s that you can’t take life to seriously! If you are so wrapped up in planning everything then you will miss the adventure and end up disappointed!
I think that I am getting better at unwinding and just letting things happen. Since I’ve been doing this I’ve been able to just enjoy life so much more! I love when friends just show up at my door or a surprise road trip to where ever we decide to go!
This weekend my husband surprised me with a Valentine weekend trip! And I couldn’t be more excited! We are in the car now driving, I won’t know where we end up until we get there but I’m enjoying the ride!
I will keep you updated on my weekend! Follow my Twitter for updates! @inspirethegirl
Love you all ❤
P.S… I have not been kidnapped!
Happy Tuesday, I wanted to write to you today about being optimistic! I know that sometimes its hard to see the glass half full and that is a problem that must be fixed.
I am one of those people that try to see the positives. I admit that everyone and a while the world gets in my way and even I seem to become a downer. When I am sick, I am the worst a cold can put me in a miserable mood for a week. But even then it’s important to realize that the energy you put out in the world will always come back to you, and who wants all that negative energy.
My best advice is to start everyday positive! Eat a healthy breakfast, drink your favorite tea or coffee, and smile! A smile is the best way to stay positive. It makes you feel better and makes everyone else see you as a kind and open person!
I always start my days with a tea made with french vanilla creamer and a smile. I smile at myself in the mirror because a woman is the most beautiful when she is smiling, and who doesn’t want to feel beautiful?
A smile is just as contagious as a frown. In most cases simply smiling at someone will get you a friendly smile in return! The most obvious example of positive energy returning to you. Every once and a while you may get the downer who scoffs or frowns at you but that is their own problem and not yours!
Let’s spread positivity today and push the negative energy away!
I love you all!
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,
We had arrived at the church 10 minutes before the ceremony started. We said a prayer and lined up for the march down the aisle. One by one my bridesmaids began to disappear through the doors and down the aisle. Before I knew it, the doors had closed again, and it was just my dad and me.
At this point, my nerves were at an all-time high. I had the same feeling you get right before you get in the world’s most intense roller coaster. My two cousins who were in charge of the doors were listening for the music to change as I began to hyperventilate.
The doors open and I looked up to see Tyler at the end of the aisle. All of a sudden all my nerves left it was just him and me. From there everything was perfect. I kissed my dad and mom at the end of the aisle and took the hand of the man who would become my husband in just minutes.
We listened to the pastor talk about what marriage means, Tyler’s cousin and my uncle read scripture, we let the unity candle, said “I Do”, and had our first kiss as husband and wife. Before I knew it, I was walking back down the aisle with my husband.
Everything was perfect, and we were married!
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!!
The New Mrs. Trites
A sneak peak at our wedding photos!
Okay ladys confession time! Im sure we all have gone to edit our photos in hope that we will look like the celebrities and get that perfect profile picture. But if you really think about it what are we really doing here? We are changing who we are. And lets face it we need to learn to look at all of our pictures and be proud this is who we are what we look at and we should be proud.
Stop looking at the magazines and wishing you could look like that celeb because in reality they don’t look like that either. I have a challenge for all of you beautiful girls and guys! take a photo of your self unphotoshoped, retouched, or filtered. Look at it and focus on things you love about it maybe your eyes look brilliantly blue or beautifully brown. Maybe your hair has the perfect wave or maybe your smile reminds you of something that makes you happy. What ever it is find it, then post it! I know for some of you this may be a little intimidating but just try even post it in my comments I want all of you to feel beautiful like you truly are. And you know what I am doing it to but I’m gonna do it with you I will also take it a step further then what I am asking of you all, No make up D: haha so here is me everyone
Love michelle XOXOX
