What I love about marriage thus far.

  The past 9 months have been a wonderful journey for the two of us as a couple. It's pretty hard to believe we'll be married a year in 3 months. Here's a few of my thoughts about marriage (or at least about our marriage) so far:

- First of all, marriage doesn't feel much different for us than being engaged. I had some friends tell me the same, but I didn't believe it until we were husband and wife.
- I love getting to wake up next to my husband every day. I know everyone says that but it's true! It's one of those small things that is so comforting and wonderful about marriage.
- Speaking of such things, I've noticed we tend to turn in for the night earlier now that we're married. It could be Dillon's change in job(he gets up at 5:30 am now) but I think it means we're an old married couple already! In a few more months we'll in bed by 7pm.
- People will never stop asking "when are you having a baby?", or for that matter tell you when, and how many, you should have. Now I know how Kate Middleton felt pre-prince George!
- The further along we go in our marriage I've come to realize just how blessed we both are to fall in love with someone that has the same values that you have at the core. While being your own person, with your own thoughts and beliefs is important, it definitely makes life decisions easier for us.
- I love how comfortable we are with each other. Sometimes I think we're a little too comfortable  but I think it only helps us as a couple.
- I really enjoy cooking for Dillon and I know he really likes me cooking for him.
- Even now that we're married we still value the time we spend together. It might be getting breakfast on a Saturday or watching One Tree Hill on Netflix right before we fall asleep.
- But the best thing about marriage is having someone there to share your dreams, your hopes, your disappointments, your fears, your passion, and your love.


  1. Lovely post. After just celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary, we have found that although we had and still have the same core values, we have often had differing opinions and perfecting the art of compromise has made our marriage stronger. If you can agree to disagree, it's a good thing.

    We still value the time we spend together, even after all these years. There is nothing more special than taking a stroll, window shopping, dreaming about what ifs, enjoying coffee and a scone, as long as we are together.

    1. That's awesome! I hope the next 22 years are wonderful! :)
