I think the biggest thing about having our one-year anniversary is that I’m now feeling less and less like a newlywed.
Of course, I’d say a big part of this is that we bought a “big” house that we are now working on and making our own.
We have settled into our own routines and habits. We have favorite weeknight dinners and a familiar list of grocery “staples” that we buy every week, or every week at least.
And we just feel like we’re growing up more all the time.
I have to admit I feel a little sad about some of this “growing up” stuff. I don’t want to lose the freshness and excited newness we had when we were first married. I’m even a little sad to leave our apartment as we move to our new house soon…it’s where we learned how to live together, where we became our own little family.
But I know the future will hold so much more than the past has held, and that there will always be new and exciting things for us to do together. And even though we won’t feel like newlyweds, we’ll feel like a comfortable, stable, married couple…which is just as good. Better even.
Still, sometimes I find myself feeling nostalgic and unsure what to do with those feelings.
What about you? Ever feel like you’re growing up too fast? Ever feel sad thinking about how some really great, exciting times are behind you? How do you handle those feelings? Let’s here some advice!
