Kellie Pickler is a very busy woman these days. Between taping two different Christmas specials, and getting ready to release her new album “100 Proof” in January, she still found time to sit down with People Magazine and share how she gets her marriage to work with her busy career. In the interview, she calls her husband Kyle Jacobs a “blessing,” and that she has her best Christmas gift in their 1-year old marriage.
“Marriage is so special,” the country singer, 25, tells PEOPLE. “I never thought that I would get married, so I’m glad that I let that wall down. I’m glad that I let Kyle love me. He is the greatest blessing in my life.”
The pair secretly wed on January 1st, 2011 in the Caribbean, and are approaching their first anniversary together. They found a unique way to share their love for each other: writing it down in journals.
“He’s been doing it since before we got engaged and [then] I started a journal for him,” says Pickler. “It’s one of those things you write in not for any special occasion but just because you love one another. It shouldn’t take holidays for you to act like you like each other and be nice to one another. You should be like that every day.”
