Mighty Life List #7: Marry Jami

Photo by Eva Russo of photoladylove.

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.

    You’ve hit on exactly what marriage is all about–it does give a feeling of solidity. And it is certainly the beginning of many things, both glorious and everyday. You are so wise. Pam
