There have been days when marriage seems boring. I can't be the only one who misses the excitement of the beginnings. I've missed the butterflies, flirting and even the drama that characterize the start of a romantic relationship. (it's probably a symptom of watching too many romantic comedies)

Marriage isn't always exciting, but this weekend I was reminded that marriage is so much more rewarding, if more subtle, than our early dating relationship.

E and I stayed up way too late talking about the future: his, mine, and ours. We vented together about difficult situations in our lives and made resolutions.


We made fun of each other over things we'd usually fight about and laughed after failing miserably at taking Christmas card photos.
We spent time apart, and missed each other.

When you're in love, it's hard to imagine falling any more in love.
but in silly and sweet ways I love seeing how we're growing together.

(I know E's face looks a little strange, but I still love this picture)

I'm leaving this weekend feeling sleepy, but so refreshed.


ps. I'm picking up our love story again. Look for the next installment later this week!

Amen. I've been having these "bored" moments a lot lately. I'm challenging myself to find the little things that make me remember why this marriage thing is way better whenever I find myself starting to think about the boredom.

I know what you mean- sometimes it's easy to miss the fireworks. But it's the slow, steady pace of marriage that makes life so much better! Adorable pictures

We've been together for over six years now! I miss the firsts sometimes. I'd never give up the other moments and the intimacy that comes with six years of love and compromise, but I do miss those more dramatic butterfly moments!
