One month: thoughts on my married life

Yesterday marked one month of marriage for Brad and me. And let’s just say that it’s been, like, totally the best ever. I thought I’d share a few thoughts on my new life as a married woman living in a new town with a new job and new school.


>I get to wake up to this everyday, which rocks. (Note: No headboard… Anybody wanna make one or buy one for us?)


>Having some one to eat meals with also rocks. Especially breakfast. And what’s even better is that you have a dish-washing buddy. I wash. He dries.

(I can’t believe I am already turning into my mother so much that after two weeks of having a dishwasher I’ve opted to quit the dishwasher and start hand wash everything. Bah. I am my mother’s daughter.)

(Check out our awesome IKEA napkins. Love.)


>There is always somebody to get ice cream with. Our most recent obsession is Red Velvet. Yum yum yum.

>The temperature has become a constant battle. He’s always hot. I’m always cold.

>Making couple-friends is fun!


>Motivation for doing schoolwork goes way down.

>You never have to go to the store by yourself.

>Sometimes weird things happen like you get a couch and there is sticky stuff all over the cushion. Then you call Furniture Deal$ and they send you more cushions.


>Double wardrobe!! So. Many. T-shirts.

>Speaking of wardrobes, you wouldn’t think that one more person would make that much of a difference, but I feel like I do laundry all the time now. I used to be able to get away with doing laundry every two or three weeks. Maybe I just need to buy Brad more clothes.

>You always have someone to go on a walk with.


>Going on walks/runs and talking about God & faith together. You get back feeling refreshed physically and mentally.

So thankful for this guy.
