The First 51 Days of Forever

I think it's funny that the one question people keep asking us is, "How is married life treating you?" My answer every time has been, "Amazingly well; I have no complaints... Surprised?" :0)

Life continues to be every bit as wonderful as it was before we got married, just... a million times better. And it's definitely a learning curve in so many ways... I'm not sure I'll every really completely grasp how truly amazing life can be, because I'm blown away every day as I find countless blessings in our new life.

For better and for worse, here are some things I've learned so far in my journey from "me" to "we"...
  1. Merging two peoples' lives together isn't nearly as hard as merging two peoples' stuff.
  2. There is no such thing as planning for car trouble.
  3. Disagreements don't count against you, but talking and figuring it out definitely count for you.
  4. Marriage will not change a night owl into an early bird.
  5. Love is getting out of bed to go to work when you really don't want to.
  6. Things really do just work out when you're doing what you're supposed to.
  7. A hug can fix anything.
  8. "Being" something is often more important than "doing" something.
  9. Loving someone unconditionally is easier than you think.
  10. Allowing yourself to be loved unconditionally is harder than you think.
I'm so grateful for the amazing man I married! Long walks on the beach and watching the sunset over an alpine lake are special memories I will always cherish, but they will never compare to coming home to my best friend every single day.
