I think now after one year of marriage, we have found our groove. We know what works and what doesn’t.
I have his favourite meals perfected (well almost all of them – if anyone has any good fish pepper soup recipes – holla at your girl), my housekeeping routine in place and know which bills to pay when. He’s got his things down too.
We’ve mastered the rules, have our routines down and are now just living life. It hasn’t been argument free, but we have got there. We no longer feel like newlyweds but an established married couple and it’s nice.
We went to a wedding last weekend and as we watched the bride and groom, there was this whimsical feeling of wish it was us again, but then I thought, actually no, I’m glad we’re not there again, we have moved on, we’ve evolved.
If I knew then what I know now, would I have done things differently this past year? Maybe, but then it wouldn’t be life and God uses our life experiences to help us grow and mature. Learning to communicate more and become more selfless. Life long lessons, from which you never graduate.
I took a break from the blog because I needed to spend more time with my husband. With work and other pressures it can be so easy to become two ships sailing in the night and so I had to be deliberate in my actions and take a step back.
So thanks for your patience, the last three months off have been great. In that time we reconnected, made a baby (lol!) and rediscovered why we got married.
Yes we found our groove.
