We’re Just Trying To Figure It Out

Both the Mr. and I both are incredibly blessed with amazing families that we got to celebrate Thanksgiving with yesterday. There was lots of food, lots of hugs, and lots of trampoline jumping. Everywhere the Mr. and I went we were greeted with, “It’s the newlyweds!” with questions soon following about how married life is, and the truth is…I didn’t really know what to tell them.

Of course you can tell people “fantastic!” because that’s what they expect to hear and it is, 99% of the time. Or, you can say what I wanted to say and tell them, “We’re still trying to figure everything out,” because we are and I know we will be for quite some time…and that’s Ok.

We haven’t even been married a whole month yet. So no, we don’t know when we are going to start trying for kids. We don’t know what investments we are going to make. We don’t know where we are going to do our banking, or if we are even going to have a joint account just yet. We don’t know when either one of us are going back to school, or what jobs are going to look like in a few weeks. We don’t know a lot of things, and I don’t know when we will know those things.

I do know a few things though.

I know that I love my husband more than anything in this world, and that while this all may take some getting used to, there’s no one I would rather argue or have a tiff with about which way the toilet paper faces.

I know that when we do decide to start trying for kids and when we do finally have that little bundle of joy, he will be an amazing dad.

I know that there is no one else’s dirty socks or fire department shirts I would rather go around the house finding that need to be washed.

I know that there is no other man (other than my Daddy of course) that will support me or love me more than he does.

I know that through job changes, going back to school, or whatever else may come into our path, he will be there by my side, holding my hand, and putting up with my crazy rants.


Newlyweds on a Budget said...

I loved the first three months of newlywed life bc my husband could do no wrong. But I would say the first year and maybe even the second year were pretty hard as we were getting used to living with each other. Things are wonderful now though, but there were definitely some bumps
