What is marriage?

Hi folks! It's been a minute since I've posted. Things have been busy around here.  We did a bit of traveling over the weekend, and I'm trying to get back into the dissertation groove.

It's March. Can you believe it? I always get really sentimental around this time of year.  Hubs and I got engaged in March of 2011.  I'll be sharing our engagement story in a few days.  I've been reflecting quite a bit about being married over the last few weeks, as my husband and I have been having great, long conversations about how to make our marriage even more successful.  I think Grover and Jesse nail it on the head:

Yeah, Jesse, it's when two people get married. 

Right after the ceremony. The newlyweds (and the pooch)! 
And they kiss and hug . . .
Taking a detour to smooch on the way to our wedding afterparty ;)
 They live together:
Hubs giving a toast in our new home!
We were having dinner on the floor in the dining room because our furniture hadn't arrived. 
And they help each other.
A "date night"  - chasing our dissertation dreams! 
They're friends:
Hanging out at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. 

Yes, Grover and Jesse, there's a lot to marriage, and it's SO worth it.  We've become family. 

Our friends and family. 
I'll take it all - the highs and the lows, the sacrifices and the rewards.  Though marriage is not always a walk in the park, the good ALWAYS outweighs the bad, and I'm so glad to be taking this journey with my guy! I thank God for the lessons that come from being a wife. 

Until next time . . . I'm about to go doodle some hearts on my notebook and write Hub's name in them :)
