Love & Marriage


So many people have given me friendly "advice" on marriage since finding out we have just celebrated our one month anniversary a few days ago! Cheesy yes, but when you're in love you find any reason to celebrate it. We chose to do so by getting out some frozen wedding cake, grilling a steak, and washing it all down with a leftover bottle of reception wine.

Most of this "advice" has been unsolicited and therefore, I must put it in my back pocket until I get home to throw it out with the daily pocket lint. "Welp, some last, some don't." "It's not easy, it's the hardest thing you'll ever do, you know how most marriages end..." Wow! Thanks for the power talk, folks! (This typically coming from people who know nothing about me or my hubby, but apparently have the authority to deem our marriage typical.) I'm here to tell you - we're atypical. I can honestly say I have married my best friend. Cheesy, mushy, predictable, who cares! Blessed.

Justin and I have fun doing just about anything! Just last night we went to our first party as a married couple and had fun tracing each other in the street with sidewalk chalk. So silly - and traffic free. There have been nights we have stayed up way past bedtime playing Rock Band together (thanks to my brother - wedding gift). We are one rockin' couple with him on guitar and me on drums.

I'm going on and on about how happy we are with each other and with marriage because some of the other comments I've heard from people have allured to the "fact" that this is all going to some day change. Apparently after just a few, short years of marriage you stop wanting to do things for each other or together. Can you hear the inflection in my text? "Just wait, cooking will get old." "You know, give it a year and you won't do that anymore." Why the heck not?! If Justin and I have this much fun doing these things together why in the world would we let that change?

Yes, I know, marriage is work. Fortunately for me, I've just signed up for my dream job.
