A Month...ALREADY?!

It is hard to believe it has been one month (well, almost...Tuesday, February 9) since our wedding. Time sure does fly by! It has taken some time getting used to the routines of life, work and school again. But, we are enjoying every minute of married life.

Since our return from our honeymoon, Christopher has been diligently studying. His first exam is Monday, February 8. I have been extremely busy at work; the spa is averaging close to 70 appointments daily. At home, we spend much of our time at the dining room table together, Christopher studying and me scrapbooking. We enjoy making dinner together and have been lucky enough the weather has been good enough to eat and enjoy our screened-in porch. Sunday nights is our date night on the sofa; we routinely watch Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters. We have also enjoyed receiving gifts and cards throughout the past weeks from family and friends. It makes opening the mailbox a whole lot more fun. About a week after our honeymoon, my mom sent us a package with random odds-and-ends, like makeup, Christopher's infamous gloves he wore during the garter toss, and Starbucks gift cards, that we had left in North Carolina. She also gave us a "design your own" yearly calendar. One afternoon I sat down and created each month with stickers, cut outs, etc. It is now sitting on our desk and we are documenting our first year of marriage. We have documented such things as, "Dinner Date at Thai Wasabi," "Church & Grocery Shopping" and "Day Trip to Tampa." It is going to be a great addition to our keepsakes to be able to see what we did during our first year of marriage.

In the coming week, my dad will be visiting us for a dinner date. He is also bringing more wedding gifts and Sun Drop! We will also be celebrating our first Valentine's Day together as husband and wife. We have no set plans yet, as Christopher will be studying for another exam and I will be working over the weekend. I have a feeling sushi, fondue and Duplin wine will be on our list of things to enjoy.
