That’s a lot of change!  My life hasn’t changed that much except that I go out less, but that’s been a welcome change.  I liked going out, but I was ready to be more of a homebody honestly.  And I like “married socializing” better than “single socializing” — just more my pace frankly.  So that’s a change!

I am unemployed, living in a new city.  I’m not really big on the regular wifey stuff, I don’t like slaving in the kitchen for hours or cleaning until the house shines so I’m not really enjoying it.

We plan things as one unit not, even more than when we were “just” engaged.

our lives feel the same as far as cleaning but i love all my new kitchen toys! lol

being a wife instead of a fiance is nice though, i love hearing it and getting mail addressed to the “vista” family instead of us as individuals lol.

I’m not sure that I, as a person, have changed drasticly (though maybe in little ways), but my life has definitley changed.

I went from being in full-time ministry, living in community with a bunch of other people, to living just my husband and I and not working for seven months. And then we moved to a new city about 800 miles away, where I now have a part time job. So that was a change, too ๐Ÿ™‚

no change here, other than my last name. we lived together before we got married, our finances were already together b/c i was unemployed then too, and other than a few new pieces of furniture thanks to the wedding money, we’re pretty much the same.

except now we’re ttc. i guess that can count.

My day-to-day life isn’t all that different from before we were married.  We lived together before we got married, so there wasn’t an adjustment there.  I guess the main thing was getting used to my new name.  Actually, I saw something written the other day in my maiden name and it looked weird!  I guess I’ve adjusted–only took me a year!

Only been married a few months, but things have changed!

My husband is a workout fanatic and we’ve been doing p90x for 3 months. I go through phases where I run, and I’m training for a half marathon– double the distance I ran last year. Instead of running mostly by myself and running with him 1x a week, we run together. So… running isnt so different, but we’re running farther and trying trails I wouldn’t have run on by myself.

We didn’t live together before hand, and we lived about 45 miles from each other, so getting to see each other all the time sans travel has been awesome.

We have weekends together!! I used to see my friends a lot more than I do now. I’m adjusting because I still want to see them but I waited a long time to get to see my husband this much, so it has to be a balance. Phone calls help. Plus– we work out a lot, so there’s not a whole lot of extra time. We do hang out with people at least 2x a week though–usually on the weekend.

I cook a LOT more than i used to. He cleans, I cook. I like trying new recipes and now that I have someone to cook for, it’s so much fun!

and…. my cats are happier. They don’t live in a broken home. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to go to his house for the weekends and they’d get lonely.  Not anymore! He works from home, so someone is there all the time.


We are planning trips now. It’s so nice to have a built-in travel buddy. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait to go places!
