year and a half.

Through our first year of marriage I did a monthly post about what married life was like as a newly wed, and reminiscing about our wedding day. I had some siblings make fun of me for doing that, but I didn't see what was so bad about celebrating being a newly wed, &today I just couldn't help myself. So when are you not considered a newly wed anymore? Today Trevor and I have been married for a year and a half! Time sure does fly. I still feel like a newly wed. I feel like our relationship gets better and better the longer we are married. We still have a long way to go, but we have learned a lot this past year about each other, and how to make a marriage work. Like I said, we still have a long way to go, and I am sure the second we think we have "got it down" something will happen to shake it all up for us! haha :) But one thing that I love about me and Trevor, is no matter how big the argument, or disagreement.... at the end of the day we don't want to be mad at each other anymore. We resolve it, or decide to drop it because we want to hug and kiss each other before we go to bed.
So far the biggest lesson I have learned about marriage is that you have to remember that you are a team.
It will only work if you act like you are on the same team, and I am happy to have Trevor on mine.

  4. Cute post. I completely agree. I think they say you are no longer newlyweds after 2 years. Not sure, but I want to think that I will be a newlywed forever :) Love your pictures.

  8. I think technically the newlywed era ends after 2 years. But I think it lasts as long as you want it to. I agree with the team. And I sometimes need to remember- it isn't about being right. It's about working towards a resolution, and at the end of the day we don't want to be mad. Sometimes I will go to bed angry(I don't believe in the adage never go to bed angry) because when I wake up if I am over it, it was silly. But if I truly am still upset, then I know it is truly something we need to work towards to resolve as partners. Congrats on your 1.5 years!

  18. Such a cute post! I love the pics too!

    I've been married almost 4 years [in June!] and i still feel like a newlywed. We have definitely had our struggles but we have learned from them and its made us a better couple.

    The best thing ever is just to always remember how much you love him. That makes everything worth it for me.

  20. I think you can be a newlywed for as long as you act like one. Which means acting like you are in love.

    Hopefully m husband and I "act" and feel like newlyweds forever!

  32. thanks for stopping by! our wedding dates are only four days apart (we got married 8.15.09 :) what a great time to be married! it's amazing how a year and a half has the ability to somehow feel like a very short amount of time and forever simultaneously. this is adorable and i'm loving your blog. as someone that's struggling to find balance with all of the variety i want to include, this is a great example.
