This weekend will mark our one month anniversary of being
married! It has been a really fun month. As members of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Haig and I did not live together before we were
married. So it has been a lot of fun to finally live with my best friend. He
has been a great roommate. We have both been working hard and I am finishing up
my last semester of school, so it has been wonderful to come home to each other
at the end of a long day.
One of my favorite things about living with Haig is learning
more about being a good wife. I notice I am doing so many things lately that I
didn’t do as often when I was living at home. I like to cook for Haig and bake
for him too. I have had a meal plan
almost every night since I have moved in. We usually go grocery shopping
together, but sometimes I will pick things up by myself. We are definitely a
team when it comes to chores and cleaning. We are both pretty clean and tidy,
and I am very organized so our apartment usually looks great.
We like to go to church together and see our friends and
family. We really like to watch movies and we have been finishing up The Office
series [we are currently on season 8, we miss Michael Scott but it is still a
pretty good show].
Although I hate talking about it, I am pretty sure I might
jinx it, but we are sick of the snow. There is way too much of it now. We long
for a summer together. It’s been a long time since we’ve had beach days,
picnics and star gazing nights. We are excited for spring because there are
some great things in store like my graduation, our wedding reception and our
birthdays, but the summer months are what we really want.
One more thing that I have noticed the past few weeks, is
that we stick together. Haig always does his best to make sure I am doing okay,
and I do my best to help him whenever he needs me. We have already had a couple
hard days and stumbling blocks arise in this new part of our adult life, but we
work through things together. Our love is so great because we are each other’s
best friends and we will literally be best friends forever.
