Insta Life

 
This past month has been a bit hard on me to be totally honest. I've been fighting illness constantly and working like crazy. Matt's been working really hard too which has meant a lot of late nights alone for the both of us. But if I've learned anything throughout all of the craziness it's that you can't let the important moments slip away. People always told us that you had to still date each other when you get married. And we were like, "Well duh, we'll be married and be around each other all the time!!" But in reality when we've been together (which is quite the rare sight) we've been sooooo exhausted and the last thing on our minds has been going out. I think that happens to really any married couple, (or maybe I'm a lone ranger? Who knows!) but in our own little way we've tried to become better this month and have more fun nights together; camping inside, hiking, going on sunset walks and dancing in the living room have been our saving grace. I think just trying to have little moments of joy has made all of the difference, and hey aren't dates where you can stay in your slippers and stretchy pants really the best kind of dates?? I mean can i get a what what!

  1. Yeah, it's funny, even when you're married and living in the same house, you have to be proactive about spending fun time with each other!!

  2. You hang in there, girl! I had a crappy month too, so I can sympathise. All couples grow into each other and get used to each other, that's just a sign of a healthy relationship. And it sounds like you guys are doing exactly the right thing by dancing and camping out in the living room, to keep that flame burning! :)

  3. I always thought after my husband and I got married the dates would kind of continue. But then came two kids and eight years have rolled by, and I have realised that making those times together, just for the two of you, is vital. I love the camping indoors idea, that looks like a hoot. Now to find our tent.....
