It hardly seems an entire week has gone by since Zach and I walked down the aisle and said “I do” to forever together. Despite there being little change to our daily lives, there is something inherently wonderful about being married and being a wife. Something as simple as a smile is now different – it’s deeper and lingers longer (and makes me happier). Spending time together has that much more meaning – it is truly sharing your life with your spouse and that is not something that can be compared. Then, there’s being called “wife” – I’m telling you, that, I cannot hear enough (even when it’s in a teasing manner).
Tonight we “celebrated” our one-week “anniversary” by sitting outside and chatting while Duke hung out in the yard, getting into something or another, cooking a simple meal (spaghetti) and watching a movie we both have wanted to see (Trouble with the Curve). It’s amazing to sit quietly and laugh with the one you love. It’s even better when that someone is the person to whom you’ve committed to spend your life, and and it sure put a smile on my face. The simple, everyday things that don’t cost a thing. Talk about a perfect night and a wonderful first week of marriage. Nothing crazy, or catastrophic or even anything out of the ordinary – and that’s why it was perfection.
As a side note, Trouble with the Curve was wonderful, we both liked it. A little funny, a little sad and a wonderful ending. Not to mention that I love Amy Adams and Clint Eastwood. I’d call this a family movie and I recommend it 🙂
