Month five is upon us.

July 28, 2010

We are in month five of this fifty-plus year adventure.

Month one and two were filled with the unpacking of boxes, getting used to sharing a bedroom and bathroom, learning how to cook for two and figuring each other out.

Month three and four were filled with finally feeling settled in the house, getting used to sharing a bedroom and bathroom, learning how to cook for two and figuring each other out. But it was a little tougher.

And month five? Month five has been like a breath of fresh air. I'm almost afraid to type that out because I don't want to jinx it, but my goodness. This week has been amazing.

It could be the fact that Chris did my laundry as I was out for the count on the couch with a headache. Or that he bought me Starbucks two nights in a row just because. Or that we've laughed with each other more these past few days than we have in a long time. Or that I haven't had to beg him to do dishes or keep his laundry off the floor. He just has.

Or maybe I've just gotten better at picking my battles, if any. Or I've made sure to notice the sweet things he's been doing and I've made sure to tell him I've noticed.

But I think we've finally made it past the first major hump and it feels good. Whatever it is, I've fallen more and more in love with this man these past five days and I want it to keep going for the next five thousand plus.
Pin It!


  1. You can't imagine how happy this made me.

  2. Cherish the good and forget the bad! And yes, pick your battles! I used to laugh when people told me that - thinking, why should I have to pick my battles...if he does something wrong, I'm gonna tell him! LOL Now, I know, it's easier and better to pick the battles.

  3. I get married next Saturday and I just want to say your blog has been an inspiration to me. Thanks for sharing the things that others are too scared to say.
