Last week we celebrated 4 weeks of being married, woo whoo! Ryan reminded me on the 28th that we had made it to a month without killing each other. Things have been consistently pretty great. We got into our first marital tiff which was pretty funny. I was crossing the street (mind you I looked twice) and he was treating me like a child for crossing the street (he thought I was gonna get hit by a car, I wasn't) and we bickered about it. That's pretty much us. Bickering. We don't argue or fight much, but when we do, it's normally over silly things like crossing the street without your husband.
We didn't do much to celebrate other than sneak off late at night with the kiddo to Silver Diner, they love that place. It was fun, as per usual. And I got to admire my husband and my daughter from across the table be super cute.
Last week I shared a reflection on Instagram about these two and our tribehood together. You can read it below, enjoy!
notes on my husband + child:
we are celebrating our first month as a married family at silver diner. corny or nah? regardless, we're doing it. the diner is char's fave spot. tonight is particularly special because she's evading her 9:30 bedtime. breakfast for dinner is always a win in her book. as i look at these two, and how far me and ryan have journeyed, i feel a wave of contentment. this is it—us forever. family. there are days when ryan feels unreal to me. sometimes i look at him and daydream. we've worked extremely hard to nurture our love and not lose ourselves as individuals in the process. our personal passions and dreams and life work, contributes to us being a unit. to us being one. in love, that's important—being just as whole independently as you are cohesively. it goes hand in hand with so many things: parenting and co-parenting, creativity and career, building and becoming. if there's one thing i can share, that prepared me for life long commitment to another, it would be, create fullness within yourself before making room for another. that helped me. i was sure of myself and desires when ry and i connected, that it made what we had even more electrifying. i was still me when we were apart, and he was still him. that was new for me. fast forward to today, our hard work has paid off. my tribe is pretty damn fantastic. i am excited to see what awaits us.
happy 4 weeks to us!
