four months! (and a lot of talking)
today is our four monthiversary. hurrah! it feels like longer. but I mean that in a good way.
you know how marriage lasts a lifetime, and so it sounds great when someone says they have been married sixty-seven years?
but saying sixteen years doesn't even sound like that much?
well four months sounds like we just walked out of the church.
but I feel like that was a long time ago.
and we have just kind of changed and adjusted a lot.
again, in a good way.
so far it's been a lot of meals in bowls for him- chili, pasta with chicken and beans and avocado, spagetti, etc. but I'm learning to make real meat stuff too. it's definitely just a lifelong thing, this cooking experience.
being (96.2%) vegan while being married has been cool.
by cool I mean kind of difficult. but also awesome.
because vegans tend to be a little religious about their beliefs and passions, and so wanting to learn all I can about the science of the nutrition that we need, while loving on some animals and on the planet - but having your favorite person in the world not get worked up a whole lot about food or where it comes from means you get to be humble and realize that not eating animal products isn't that big of a deal. and that is a great, great thing.
also, we hang out a lot with guys. like, a lot a lot a lot. and it's really fun and different.
lots of the black keys, and camping conversations, and dinners where they eat anything with enthusiasm. it's so fun.
we also have been totally and completely geeking out about lord of the rings. and watching every second of the hours and hours and hours of special features on the dvds.
like, watching people make and talk about the swords used in this one shot.
almost every night we watch a couple minutes of that.
it's the coolest, most educational and geeky thing. I love it.
and with our personal lives, I feel like being married is just fun. so much better and happier and more convenient than not being married. we get so much sleep now since we can "hang out" while we sleep. ha.
and I think it's cool that we get to encourage each other to do the things they love to do and are good are. like sometimes that means buying hats we really like when we've never been big hat-buyers.
he has a room just for music and I have a room just for crafting and making, and sometimes we spend a lot of time of opposite sides of the house just doing what we do. but it's the greatest thing.
so yes. I like it, this marriage thing.
ps. no fight over the toothpaste yet. we hear that's a vicious one, though!
