Almost There

I admit, the drive to our new home yesterday, felt really long, and I questioned whether choosing a place so far away from everything was a good idea. However, once I stepped out onto our new back deck and felt the breeze and listened to the crickets and birds and saw the sun set – all doubt vanished. I’m even looking forward to washing dishes in our new place because I have a window to look out of and it’s a peaceful view. Of course I forgot my camera, so pictures will come next week, but you’ll have to take my word for now. We also caught a glimpse of who will be in the otherside of our twin home and it looks like an older woman, so hooray for no more rowdy neighbors!  If anything, we’ll be the noisy ones, and we really aren’t that noisy. Hooray for peace and quiet!!


Coming tonight… err or whenever I have time – regaling tales from our mini-moon! I am finally going to sit down with pictures from our mini-moon and reviews from where we went. I’m so excited for our real Honeymoon next year, which is going to be 2 or 3 weeks of the fun we had.

No longer a Miss

Ah, married life. OKay, so it really doesn’t feel all that different from pre-married life. I look at it as a plus, though. Because we’ve lived together so long, we’re already used to each other’s quirks and possibly annoying habits – we won’t have that potential stressor in our first year of marriage because we already know we live well together. We know we won’t fight over new things because we don’t really fight anyway… sure there are aggravations and stress, but usually it’s regarding a situation and not the other person, so in my case, I just need a little space and then I’m fine. When all is said and done we really have a very healthy relationship, I’d say. 🙂

Being “official” does feel good, though. I love that I’m a wife now and it’s a title/label that I’m very happy to have. Every night before bed we take our rings off and place them in a heart-shaped ring-holder and they fit snuggly together, as we do. I can’t tell you what a thrill it is to see a ring on Josh’s finger – just as exciting as when he first put a ring on mine. I remember the words in our ceremony* and that’s what I think when I look down at my hand and his.

Okay, enough mushy stuff. We won’t have pictures for a few weeks yet, but I’ll be posting some as soon as we do, or most likely creating a slideshow. We did get some pictures from my mom (yay) and I think a few people are starting to come out of the woodwork with their pictures from the day. Now I just have to pester more people to share theirs with us. :p
