She Got Married, Too: Heleen

I love reading about other couples. I love getting a
sneak peak into their lives and seeing how they make their situation work. Some would say that I'm nosy. Which I'm fine with. Because enough people were open enough to take me up on this guest poster series and answer with honesty, heart, and humor.
Enjoy :)

Heleen and Adam
21 (Heleen) and 27 (Adam)
We live in:
A cozy apartment in Olympia, Washington

Do you blog? (Where can we find you?) About what?I blog about my crazy life, including being married to my wonderful husband, living in the military life with our cat and a little one on the way. You can find me at http://mychroniclesoflife.blogspot.com/

What do YOU do? I am a stay at home wife and soon to be stay at home mom. It has it's ups and downs, but I love the fact that I can focus on more important things.

What does HE/SHE do?My husband is an infantryman in the United States Army!

How long have you been married? We will be married for two years on April 17th!

What holds the two of you together?Patience, strength, and definitely LOVE for sure. Especially since Adam is in the Army, it brings a whole new world into the mix. We have to have patience with each other and we need to be strong. If we weren't each others whole world, things would be so much harder. It takes a lot of give and take, but we make it work.

What do you argue about the most?Honestly? The most stupid stuff ever. It's never about money, who does what, or will it ever be about our child. We argue about things that are pointless and should not be argued about.

Do you have kids? If not, are you planning on them anytime soon?We have a baby boy, who is currently still in the oven and will be here in June!

No kids? Dogs? Cats? They count. Names? Our orange tabby cat, Martin is a handful at the moment!

Who cooks the most?
I do, since Adam is at work all day.

Who cleans the most?I also do this the most since he is gone all day. Although sometimes he has random cleaning outbursts on weekends!

What was the biggest shocker of married life?I knew it would be hard, but sometimes I never knew it would be THIS hard. You really need to grow up a lot, especially at the ages we are.

Where do you see yourselves in five years?I see us still happily married, maybe in our own house with our cat and son, as happy as ever (just a bit older). In five years there could be another little one, but we will see!

If you could give an engaged couple any advice (assuming they asked for it), what would it be? That life is truly a roller coaster. There will be ups and downs; sometimes you will want to give up. Just take one day at a time and do not let anything get in the way of you two as a happy couple. Arguing is perfectly normal and if you think you argue too much, don't! Behind closed doors, everyone probably argues just as much as you. It is how you handle it that counts! All you need to do is focus on what is important to you and to keep each other happy.

Happy Belated Anniversary to Heleen and Adam! Thank you for sharing your story, and I cannot wait to see pictures of baby Liam! <3
