Welcome to the new blog from the MEDLEYS (yes, I LOVE being able to say that). We are just two people who found each other and fell in love...twice. We love our story and we love each other. Gideon and I have been married for a grand total of 5 days and we are loving every minute of it. I love his socks at the end of the bed every night and I love how he sweetly arranges the silverware in our drawer that we don't even have a silverware holder in yet. We live in a little one bedroom apartment, but it's ours and we love it. We are just enjoying life, taking care of each other, compromising, loving each other, and still having the whole "I can't believe we're finally MARRIED" conversation over and over. Last night, I was supposed to be looking for the info to pay my car bill but instead we found all of the letters Gideon sent me while on his mission, and some old journal entries from while he was gone, me saying how much I missed him and I loved him. Then we just sat looking at old pictures from before his mission and comparing them with our wedding pictures. I, of course, started crying as I snuggled up to my new husband, thinking just how wonderfully happy I am at the way everything turned out. I dreamed of marrying him for so long and sometimes it catches my breath to realize that it's all come true. I feel so lucky to have married the man of my dreams. It's a blissful little reality check, being married, and we LOVE the reality we have found ourselves in. Thanks to everyone who helped out with the wedding and sacrificed time and money to come and support us on the big day. We love you all so much!!
