Lazy, hazy days of…

My daily grind is in a bit of a lull, proving little fodder for my blog. Max and I have returned to our ordinary and uneventful pre-wedding routine. We live a good life, so I am not complaining. And if anything, we needed a break from all the recent buzz and excitement a wedding brings.

These days, people ask me if being married feels different. Since Max and I had already carved out a life together, I didn’t expect it would. And as we have gotten back to business as usual, everything seems the same. But, surprisingly, it does feel different, somehow deeper and more certain.

I’ve been down this newlywed road a time or two, so I didn’t expect to feel the sense of freshness in our relationship. I would not have imagined, for example, that I’d experience giddiness the first time Max referred to me as his wife, but I did. And when I ask Max if he also experiences these novel sensations, he assures me the feelings are the same.

I realize that in a few short months this honeymoon phase will, if not be over, at least seem more ordinary. But until that time, I’ll savor these simple and quiet times with my new husband.

Being married is different. The honeymoon hopefully won't be over forever! :)

It IS different, because there is personal and public committment to each other. That HAS to feel different.

Awww, that is so sweet! I predict no end to the honeymoon for either of you...well, unless a mini Max or Diane shows up anyway! j/k

The honeymoon may end but the romance doesn't have to. Keep spicing it up.

Awwww! You two are beyond cute (and such a great inspiration)! I already feel different being engaged, so I can't imagine how it will feel to be married. So exciting for us both! :o)

Uh-oh. The week officially ended 2 hours ago and no new design. The question remains--will it be pink?
