I woke up with an extra spring in my step and smile on my face this morning…. and haven’t been able to wipe that ridiculous smile off my face all day! Here
1. I’ve almost been married for two months, and I can’t tell you how much I’m LOVING my married life! It’s so much more relaxed and wonderful then I ever imagined! We are both settling into a routine, and enjoying working out together (and taking showers together ;), cooking together… and waking up next to him every morning. It’s amazing! 2. My amazing five-finger shoes came in! I love them, well, I love looking at them. My calves hurt lie crazzzzy, and I’ve got a blister from breaking them in. But they are so pretty and pink 🙂 I’m in love.
3. Fall is here. Kind of. It’s been between 60F-80F all week and I’m loving it like crazy! We are sleeping with the doors and windows open, which, of course, means we can snuggle! This means Chai Tea, huge sweaters, toques, jeans, and of course… more snuggling with Tyler :). In fact, he showed me the weather last evening and it showed it was going to be 61F overnight, and he said, “we can sleep with the windows open!” and my reply was ” and then we can snuggle!” with a little girly grin of glee 🙂
4. We started going to a new church a couple weeks ago, and I’ve been attending the women’s bible study. We’ve been going through the study “Conversation Peace” by Mary Kassian. It’s supposed to “help women revolutionize their speech habits and positively avoid sharing gossip, throwing negative barbs, or snapping sarcastic replies throughout everyday life”. We’ll see how it helps… she really has us digging through the Bible to answer all our questions for our homework, and I’m really enjoying it!
5. ANNNNNNNND our poor little selves got a FREE couch just given to us! We are so blessed 🙂 It completely fills up our living room and makes it the coziest room ever. I’m excited to start decorating for fall/Thanksgiving… which will make our red walls so much more festive! Apparently we have to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving, and Tyler even mentioned getting a tree! I get all excited just thinking about it…
What are you happy about? Sometimes when it feels like everything is going wrong, in order to maintain your sanity, you have to dwell on the things are going right in your life. We’ve had a whirl-wind summer/fall, so it feels so good to settle into a routine and start building on our life together… and things have started falling into place. That’s the final thing I’m happy about… a little routine 🙂
