The Little Things

You guys, I can’t believe Justin and I have been married for almost one month (next week!)!!!! It’s crazy!!! Things are flying by so fast! I don’t want to forget some of the things that have been making me laugh or feel thankful.

Now, don’t get me wrong, Justin and I aren’t perfect (anyone who knows us knows this is true).  We argue over a lost flip flop (it happened), what to watch on TV, and about picking up our laundry and putting it in the hamper (we’re both guilty of this!). But there’s also been so many fun and little things that have happened during our first week of marriage and I don’t want to forget them! 

So instead, I’ll share them with you! 🙂 

-trying not to call your new husband your fiancé

-giggling every time you say husband

-practicing calling each other husband/wife (oh, we’re the only ones who do that, okay…) 

-waking up with your husband right next to you (sometimes with his knee in your back, or maybe that’s my knee in his back? haha)

-getting excited over organizing your pantry 

-dividing and conquering in the grocery store

-having someone to get rid of the scary spiders

-getting way too excited about watching The Office while eating dinner in the living room

-having all of your preschoolers talk about your wedding and your new husband (“Mr. Justin – the fireman fighter” hahaha) 

-and them getting grossed out when they asked if you kissed and told them “yes”

-being thankful your husband wakes up to make you breakfast when you’re getting back in the groove of work 

-or for him bringing your breakfast if you didn’t have time to make it (if you couldn’t tell, food is my love language!)

-seeing your best friend every day

All of these things are so special to me right now and I don’t want to forget how I’ve felt during the first few weeks of our marriage. I wouldn’t want things any other way! 🙂 

P.S. Doesn’t my husband look so cute with his dimples? This was when we were reading our personal vows to each other! 🙂
