I’m still out of luck on the computer front, which is putting a serious damper on the bloggins. I suppose I could start blogging from David’s computer on the regular (which is what I’m doing right now) or try to do it from my phone, but I’m seriously missing Photoshop, which is only on my laptop. Blerg. Still, I’ve got a couple more interviews scheduled, so marriage month will carry on regardless!
Today we’re reading about Alicia’s brand-spanking-new marriage,. I started reading her blog Snowstorm around the time she got engaged, and it’s been so fun to follow along as she shared her love story, her wedding, and her subsequent new family adventures. She’s my token newlywed this month because 1) I like her quite a bit and 2) I think we can all benefit from a reminder of how marriage feels at the very beginning.
little about your family.
on this whole marriage thing. We enjoy binge-watching Netflix and
eating Mexican food together. We don’t have kids yet (unless you count
our dog), but they’re definitely in our future plans. As for now, we’re
just enjoying newly married life and all that it entails,
you decide Andrew was “the one”?
short version though- we saw each other for the first time in a men’s
restroom (for the long version, you can check out our love story on my
blog). After our first encounter, I continually joked with friends and
family that I had met my future husband. As the dates followed, the
nickname of my future husband became that much more serious. So I guess
you could say, I knew from the beginning that Andrew was the one.
still “the one”?
a good morning kiss every day before he leaves for work. Because he
lets me watch my reality shows without complaining too much. Because he
always agrees with me when I suggest going on a Dairy Queen run. Because
he does the dishes and helps me around the house. He is constantly
doing all these little things that remind me that he’s “the one”.
love most about being married in general? What do you love most about your marriage
sense, I love the feeling of being accepted and also being apart of my
own little family unit. When it comes to our marriage specifically, I
love always having my best friend by my side. I can definitely say
without a doubt that Andrew is my favorite roommate I’ve ever had, hands
down, no competition.
of the most difficult things you’ve had to overcome in your marriage?
cheesy cliche couple, but we haven’t had anything too difficult we’ve
had to overcome yet. Some may attribute that to being so fresh in the
marriage business, but I’d like to think we’ve worked on keeping our
marriage challenge free. Andrew and I have made it a priority to
communicate. We discuss anything and everything and trust each other to
be considerate of each other’s thoughts and feelings. Of course, that’s
not to say we’ll never experience trials or hardships, but hopefully the
foundation we’ve laid will make them easier to face together.
of things do you do (or have you done) to strengthen your relationship?
give any marital advice, what would it be?
favorite meal or to leave him a love note to find for later. The simple
things are sometimes the best way to strengthen a relationship.
Sounds like they’re off to a great start, no? I love that they are already laying a foundation of good communication in preparation for whatever life may throw at them in the years to come.
And oh! How I miss the luxury of being able to go on a date every week without having to make babysitting arrangements! Good for you guys for taking advantage of it now!
Thanks for being with us, Alicia!
