I just love newlywed life. Well, scratch that, I love life with James. It seems like everyday we are making new discoveries about each other. Somedays we learn about our food preferences, for example: James’ staples on the grocery list are beef jerky, laughing cow cheese triangles, and crackers (vegan, but he doesn’t really know that, cause then he probably wouldn’t eat them).
Other days we are learning how to communicate, and sometimes that’s not the easy way, it’s the hard way, no- scratch that, often the hard way. Which is totally OK. It’s actually wonderful. What’s so amazing is that we’ve been learning this awkward walk together since the beginning, and so the difficulties and misunderstandings don’t hit us as hard as they once did. Do they still hit? Doy! But it’s a little less painful, and there aren’t really any bruises like there used to be.
I think part of what makes those misunderstood moments go by smoother is realizing that God has totally set us up for success- total. and. complete. success! That’s why I want to start counting, no not counting, more like “realizing” all the blessings we have.
Every night when we plop/shimmy/scurry into bed and I automatically get the giggles in excitement for the cuddles that are about to commence. James [a morning cuddler] laughs, i mean loves, and expects it now.
Getting to spend lunch dates at my mom’s house and [still] eating her food and [still] popping in without a word and [still] allowing her to treat me to a nail salon date on Saturday.
Spending afternoons and evenings out of the week at games (volleyball, football, basketball-FAVE [notthatihavefavorites], and more!) for youth in the youth group. love!
People at work, who I’m more and more just absolutely adoring. and when they buy me Mexican food for lunch. And when they think of me on a Staples run and pick out the Cars-themed tissue box, instead of a regular ol’ tissue box. Cause they know I’d actually love that!
And mornings like this. fo. real. Bahaha..
Thanks for reading! Happy weekend 🙂
