marrying james is the best decision i’ve ever made.
…right up there with serving an lds church mission and getting a Costco membership.
i love him! marriage is so much fun. honestly, we go together perfectly. i love that every morning and night, he is there. it is a beautiful thing having someone to share everything with.
there has been some adjustment. the hardest part about being married, is probably our time management. before, it was easy to get things done when james wasn’t around because he didn’t live with me. NOW we both work from home and live under the same roof. naturally, we love spending that time together – but we realized quickly that it was easily wasted because james would cuddle the whole day away while watching Netflix if I agreed to it.
but, we’ve gotten a better grip on how to be in the same small apartment and do our own separate things. we’re over having to always be in the same room as each other…which makes homework, chores, and work happen more often.
even though sometimes james catches me studying like this sometimes…
james is so sweet to me in so many ways. i love making our “house” a “home”, and he surprised me one morning with these lovely fall mums!:
we both like to entertain…so having friends over is always an option!
we’ve had a couple “Debate Parties” which were both a full-house success. (on such occasions, i love that i own a crockpot! i’m a little obsessed). or just nights of movies and games is always fun.
we also did our first BYU tailgating. kabob style. it was great! …though agreed that next time we’ll scale-up a bit….
we also had our first Cornbelly’s experience! we went with B and Kelli and had a fun fall night of pumpkins, deep fried junk food, and haunted mazes of sorts.
B and James fit in with the other little boyz…
that night was both mine and james’ first haunted anything experience. SUPER fun with B and Kel! i found out i’m a screamer, kelli ain’t eva scurred, and both B and James are runners…James especially when there is a chainsaw involved.
since fall and the leaf change came around, james and i like to drive up in the mountains.
james was even so diligent as to carve our love into an aspen…
3.5 weeks of marriage down, and i’d say we own it!
more to come!…
