Settling in to Normalcy

Is this real life?

But really.

I got married three weeks ago. What is that? I spent 6 loooong months planning and obsessing over this wedding, (which was amazing, by the way) that actually only ended up being 7 short hours, that were the beginning to an extremely long lifetime.

Think about it, you spend months, sometimes even years planning this one day. And it’s not even a full day! While a wedding is supposedly the best day of your life, its really just the first day of the rest of your life with someone.

My wedding was amazing. The day didn’t go perfectly by any means. But I wouldn’t have wanted it to be. If everything went smoothly, then it wouldn’t be life, right? But it was the best day of my entire life. Everything was beautiful, the food was great, everybody had a great time, but most importantly I started my life with my best friend. And after the wedding is when the really amazing stuff starts.


I have a house with a kitchen and a cute red couch and a bedroom. We bought furniture, I go grocery shopping and do laundry. I now have three rings on my ring finger and my last name is different. Also, there’s someone in my bed when I wake up every morning (weird).

But it’s the most wonderful thing in the world. The weirdest thing of all is how much I like it. What joy it brings me to get up in the morning and cook breakfast for two, to have someone sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door so he can protect me, to have someone to come home to, or wait up for.

Even though my wedding was a fairy tale, those are the truly magical things in life.
