Six Months of Marriage

Today marks six months of marriage to my beautiful, charming, intelligent, funny and godly wife, Danielle. Here are just a few of the things I've discovered over those six months:

-Time speeds up when you're not alone.

-Watching football all day Saturday and Sunday is not everyone's idea of fun.

-Married people like to talk about getting together with each other, but it's not as easy as it sounds.

-If you plan on doing something, you should tell your wife. You share a life, not a brain. (Hard transition for someone who was single for as long as I was.)

-Eating out is twice as expensive.

-People like to ask, "How is married life treating you?"

-Side dishes exist with home cooked meals.

-When one spouse thinks birthdays are a big deal and one doesn't, the one that thinks they're a big deal wins.

-Married life is awesome.

-There are too many shades of tan paint.

-There are too many shades of green paint.

Congrats to you both! Your list made me smile, I'm glad you get to experience the "joys" of married life. And Danielle is perfect for you. ;-)

Love this!! I agree whole-heartedly with all of them (well, the paint one doesn't really apply to us) but especially number 4 (about the plans - that was one of the hardest things for Joey to adjust to because he also had lived by myself for a long time) and 8 (the one about birthdays).

We have GOT to get together as couples! ;)
