A month ago today, we got married. Married! (There we are above looking in amazement at Jami’s wedding band.)
It’s been a good (if somewhat expensive) month, and I hope it is just the start of many good months and years ahead. It’s pretty great being married. In a lot of ways, it’s no different than before – we wake up next to each other, same as before, eat dinner together every night, worry about our pets, plan our garden. In ways both practical and profound, a shift has definitely occurred however. How does marriage feel different? The best way I can describe it, as unromantic as it sounds, is that marriage feels solid. It feels like a foundation on which we can build. It feels like the start of something. Marriage so often seems to be seen (at least in movies) as the happy ending, but I think it’s really the beginning: the start of the rest of our lives and all the amazing things, both extraordinary and mundane, that we can accomplish together. Let the adventure begin.
