Well, I’m about six weeks in and I love it πŸ™‚ Our new couch arrived today, which is our first big kid non-wedding purchase. It’s nice to not spend all our time on wedding stuff (although now I’ve morphed that to thinking about houses, getting me a car from this millenium, babies). I think overall it’s pretty much what I expected it to be – maybe better. It’s nice to have this person who’s always got my back and cares about me.

It’s just been really nice so far πŸ™‚ As far as advice….enjoy the waiting if you’re waiting, enjoy the engagement, enjoy it all – it will go by fast (even if it seems reaaaaaaaaally slow). I think about how I wanted to be engaged, then married, now I want a house and babies – I don’t think we’re ever just happy to be were we are!

well we are about to have our 4 month wedding anniversary…….and I can honestly say, It’s better than I could have ever in a million years imagined.

Being an encore bride, I thought it might feel somewhat the same…..boy was I wrong. I know with every fiber of my being that this is the man I was meant to be with.

He is my rock, he is my best friend, he lifts me up, he is my everything.

I am beyond elated.

We’ve been married for 1 month and 1 day and it is everything I expected and more.  We still feel like our heads are up in the clouds! I agree with teh previous poster, ENJOY IT ALL! The wedding itself went by sooo fast and I actually get sad thinking about how it won’t ever happen again =(

My Darling Husband and I lived together for almost 2 years before we got married, so nothing has really changed other than that we call each other ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ =)

We’ve been married just over two weeks.  We’re still learning how to live with each other, but it’s been pretty good so far.  πŸ™‚

We’re approaching our 2 month anniversary in a couple of days, and I can’t tell you how elated I am to be married. Granted, we’re still living in my parent’s in-law apartment in their house, so we’re not entirely out on our own yet, but it’s still amazing! We’re in a total newlywed bliss, and just started TTC πŸ™‚

It’s the little things, how when he introduces me as his wife to people now – and I totally get butterflies in my stomach.

Our one year anniversary is coming up in less than a month and I cant believe it! This year has flewn by and been wonderful. I honestly feel like this has been the best year of our relationship. We have just grown closer in a way that I couldn’t have imagined. I am so looking forward to our one year anniversary and the next year to come πŸ™‚

We’re getting close to a year maried and it’s been an exciting year. We had lived together in 3 different apartments in as many years before we were married so I was not surprised when not much felt different after the honeymoon but right around the 3rd month, I really started to feel married if that makes sense. We’ve had our ups and downs but somehow being married has a reall strenghtening feeling for me, I just feel like we are more of a team. I’m already looking forward to celebrating our one year anny but slightly afraid as Darling Husband will be moving 3 hours away for a new job just 2 weeks before our anniversary. Although, being married means I get recognized as his family by his company and thus get visitation benefits (travel reimbursement) and eventual assistance to find a job in the area. It still seems odd to think about not living together but I’m sure it won’t be as stressful as I imagine. I think the first year of marriage opens up new doors because you ultimately don’t have a wedding on your mind. I also suddenly felt like I could consider having children sooner than my origional plan and I never expected that to happen.

Sweet idea for a thread. It’s nice to see how everyone else is doing and reflect back on our own changes.

We’re 3.5 weeks into marriagedom, and it’s going pretty well. Due to the nature of farming, it’s been a crazy last few weeks. We got home from our honeymoon and immediately were consumed by baling hay. Not as glamorous as it sounds. Which is probably not glamorous anyway. But seriously, things have been great. I’ve been a little stressed about going back to school and we’ve been stressing over finding him a job (he’s a teacher and there are huge cuts right now). He was getting ready to submit applications to various school districts for day to day sub positions, and last night, he got a call from the middle school principal in his home school district (the guy also happens to be his former wrestling coach). They had a teacher resign yesterday, and it’s in DH’s field! He told Darling Husband to watch for the posting because it’s all going to move very quickly. Because of the terms of their contracts, the guy who resigned will be forced to teach through the first few weeks of the school year, but then the new hire will take over as a long term sub, who would be hired on permanently for next year assuming the new hire does a good job. So, while there is never a guarantee, of course, we have our hopes pretty high that Darling Husband will get this. I feel like it looks pretty good when the person doing the hiring contacts you to apply for it. Also, the position is in a middle school but will also teach a class in the high school, and my hubs is dually certified to do both, not one or the other, like so many in this subject area.

Oh, and did I mention that I got hired on as a temporary university instructor? The week before the wedding! I’d applied for a summer position that I did not get, but my application was in their temporary pool of candidates. I hadn’t seen the new job posting or interview for it because of being in the pool, so imagine my surprise when I got an email asking if I wanted this job. It was such a crazy time that I never posted about it, but yep, I’ll be a full time PhD student with a graduate research assistantship, and I’ll be teaching my own class. Yes, other faculty believe I’m competent enough for students to pay tuition money for me to teach them something. Pretty awesome, huh?

But these new job turns of events (hopefully) mean that we’re going to stay in our home area instead of moving to my grad school area. It’s about an hour and a half commute, but I have class only 3 days/week and can do everything else from home/the internet. So we’re looking for somewhere to live right now. Hopefully that will also magically appear, much like these two jobs!

Smiles all around from the Amaryllis camp. πŸ™‚

@Amaryllis: Congrats all around on the jobs! And yeah, baling hay is NEVER glamourous πŸ˜›

It’s pretty awesome! We just hit two months and I love being introduced as his wife. I am slowly but surely changing my name which has been super weird. We lived together before so not much has changed (which is what I expected). I love that I don’t have to plan a wedding anymore! As for advice… your wedding day is going to be over before you know it and no matter what you tell yourself you are not going to be able to “take it all in and remember it forever”. Just try to hang on to that elated feeling of being with the people you love, someone could have thrown paint on my dress that day and I swear I would not have cared.

Our one year wedding anniversary is quickly approaching. This first year … has been tumultuous. Not because of him and I but because of life. For our honeymoon we took our trip of a lifetime to Europe for 3 weeks. And it was everything we wished and so much more!

Then in Decemeber we suddenly lost my Brother-In-Law and talk about a crash landing. It was like being on Cloud 9 then dropping all the way back down to Earth and the fact that life really f*ng sucks sometimes.

My husband and I have been through plenty and gone through hard times to be together in our ten years relationship. So we had plenty of life obstacles to build our love and relationship. Going through sudden loss together only makes our love and relationship stronger. Honestly now even more than before we know we can do and get through anything together as a unit. I can’t stress that enough for the newlyweds out there that are having issues.

Currently we are getting ready to put in an offer on our second home. And hopefully shortly start a family. Life only gets more interesting from here on out and I can’t wait to continue sharing it with my husband.
