All You Need is Love
Wow this countdown is going by super fast. I can't believe we are already at 15 days to go. It has also been difficult to keep up. It is sad that I have such a hard time finding 10 minutes in my day to post something. How do journal keepers do it?
Well, this is going to be somewhat of a sappy post. But it is good to keep in touch with my sensitive side right? Cuz, I know that I tease KC a lot. And that I joke by saying, "What did I get myself into?". But in all honesty I am very in love and happy to married. In June I remember telling people that I didn't think marriage would be all that different since KC and I had, in my mind, experienced everything in our five years of dating that a married couple does. And even though most of it is the same stuff, I have found it to be different than I expected. I don't know if that is bad or good. There are definitely both present. For example, picking up dirty boxers off the bathroom floor and finding soda cans all over the place weren't things that I had to take care of during dating. And handling finances for two people is very different. I miss the days of randomly buying stuff that I liked. Even though I am saving more now and that is probably better anyway.
But the good definitely out way the bad. Having someone to talk with while I am getting ready in the morning. Someone to snuggle up with at night. And the best part is having someone that is going the same direction as you. KC has a very different perspective on life and now that are lives are on the same path it is nice to have his positive influence affecting my life in a way that it didn't before marriage. I don't know if that makes sense to you, but just believe me that my life is happier with KC as my husband.
The funny thing is that even though we are married, I spend less time with KC than I did when we were dating. Obviously this is a direct effect of law school, and it is a difficult challenge for both of us. KC is stressed to the max and I get lonely without him around. But even though this is a challenge, it is amazing to see it already strengthening us. I love supporting KC, and it only makes me realize how much I love him and how proud I am of his accomplishments. And in turn I see KC working so hard to provide a comfortable life for us. And I am grateful that he makes sure that the few moments he has with me are spent helping keep the house in order or rubbing my back. I guess I am starting to ramble on. But I just feel so incredibly happy that I have him around. And I just felt like sharing it.
On that note, we just got our prints from our wedding. I scanned my favorite in. It just explains our feelings that day!
