since I became Mrs. Coleman. One week. Can you believe it? I definitely can’t. For two months leading up to our special day, everyday we talked about what our wedding day would be like, how excited we were, and different decisions we needed to make. Then the day happened. I was curious to see where our conversations would go in the late hours when we are laying in bed, or driving in the car, or sitting on the couch after a long day. There was no longer a big event to think about/plan/look forward to. I also wondered about what might change once we said “I do.” I imagine more traditional couples spend their days as newlyweds unpacking boxes, hanging photos, and making their first home meals together. But since we have been living together for over a year now, we are past that point. No big move in to symbolize our marriage. This first week has given me a look into what marriage means to us. Sometimes, we talk about the future. Things like buying a house or having a baby, both things we want to do..one day. Sometimes, we go for a walk with our diesel bear and enjoy quiet moments. Sometimes, we complain about how our quiet neighborhood turns into one big tailgate party on Saturday game day’s (one thing that isn’t a perk of living in a college town). And sometimes, we don’t get along as good as others. I know marriage isn’t always going to feel like one big sleep over, but we sure are having the time of our life. It is easy to fall asleep knowing that the one cuddled up next to you is going to be there as long as humanly possible. Gosh, being married sure is the best thing ever.
The above photo was taken the night before our wedding when we had one last adventure as a married couple. The fact that it was rainy + dark made what we did even more memorable, though at the time we were wishing the weather conditions were a different. I know this is probably the part where I should tell the story, but i’d rather keep it a secret, only told to a few select people. It makes it more special in my eyes. Some things are just best when they aren’t blogged about. Right? That night holds a very special place in my heart, but I know the memories we are creating as a married couple are going to be even more incredible. Life is good friends, life is very, very good.
