lessons from our first year

I feel like this photo is almost racy? My apologies. Unfortunately we don't have many good wedding pictures. 
This may have something to do with the fact that I chose to do my own hair.

-Discussions on getting a dog never end well. 

-I'm actually really good at cutting Trevor's hair. Which is hilarious, because I did some serious damage to my own hair in college. (I didn't know that you're not supposed to cut side bangs straight across. Just picture that for a minute).

-Dates can be cheap. A couple cups of coffee and we're set.

-The less TV we watch, the better. 

-I don't like cuddling when my hair is wet. *shudder*

-There is rarely a month that goes by without me thinking I'm pregnant. ("Oh my gosh, my stomach hurts! Trevor, I'm pregnant!" "That's from the Mexican we ate last night.") I have accepted that I will live in a constant state of paranoia until I'm actually expecting.

-It's important that we communicate about every. little. thing.

-We love spending time together (and, because we work together, we spend the majority of our day together). But it's also important for us to have alone time. For me, this looks like reading at a coffee shop. For him, it's watching an action movie. It works.

-Marriage is not easy, per se, but it's very natural. It feels right. Before my wedding, I heard someone compare marriage to putting on your comfiest pair of PJ's. I kind of rolled my eyes when I heard it, but now I totally agree. It's comfy.

-We are much better people now that we're married.


  1. Aw! So sweet! I think that picture is great! :)

    "There is rarely a month that goes by without me thinking I'm pregnant." This made me laugh because it's so true! I'm like that too. Wait until you actually start trying-it gets worse!

    1. Oh my word, I can only imagine! Haha. I actually left work once to take a pregnancy test! So embarassing :)

  2. I think the picture came out beautiful! Not RACY at all, silly bride! hahaha! If only my pictures would have come out this beautifully! :D I feel all the issues you're facing, I face as well!

    1. Haha, thanks!
      And yes, we new brides need to stick together :)

  3. Congrats on your first year!! Great revelations for only being one year in :)
