Today marks Kristian and my one month anniversary! And they said it would never last! J/K It's hard to believe that our first month of marriage has flown by so quickly. We're still trying to put away all our wedding gifts, write thank you notes and figure out what to do with all of our leftover wedding decor...we now have a LOT more candles around the house than we did before. And of course I have yet to tire of looking at all our wedding photos.
Married life is great, it really is. Since we lived together for a year before the wedding not much has really changed as far as our daily routine except now we drink more coffee, thanks to our new Keurig coffeemaker, we now eat dinner off of nicer plates and we sleep on nicer sheets. But other than that it's pretty much the same as before which I love. It's comforting. I've never been a big fan of change as it is and if I had had to deal with the stress of moving in together and adjusting to life living with a significant other for the first time right after the stress of planning a wedding I would have lost my mind.
Don't get me wrong, I do feel different. I feel settled and secure and at peace. I no longer worry that Kristian will wake up one day, come to his senses and leave me. I guess technically he still could but not without having to go through the court system :-) I love having a new last name, though I'm just now starting the arduous task of legally changing it. I love it when he introduces me or refers to me as his wife. I love being able to call him my husband.
I have a partner. Someone to lean on. Someone to share my ups and downs with. To cry with and to laugh with. It's the greatest feeling in the world. Yes I know, I had all this before but somehow now that we're married it just feels more real. We're a family now.
