I have been married for a little more than four months. Every day is not perfect. Sometimes, our new life is not as exciting, or adventurous, or inspiring as I imagined each day would be.
But I have discovered some things in four short months. Some new and special things. Some little things about marriage that make me laugh, smile, embrace the day, and look forward to the next one.
Marriage is almost always about sharing.
Even if you don't realize you're sharing until you kiss your husband and smell your (expensive) organic vanilla conditioner in his beard.
Marriage is sometimes about compromise.
"I can't stand Jay Leno. He's so cheeezy."
"Well I can't stand Conan, he's so nerdy."
"Fine then, we'll watch Letterman."
Marriage is about spending quality time enjoying activities together.
Sometimes that activity is you struggling to jog your ample "pear" bottom uphill, while your husband drives alongside you on a ATV, drinking a cup of coffee.
Sometimes the gifts are small. Sometimes they come wrapped in funky paper. Sometimes, they're wrapped so discreetly, your might not recognize they're gifts at all. But I love unwrapping them. And on every day of this newlywed journey, God has not failed to leave one on my doorstep.
