The Honeymoon Phase

Well, the honeymoon is officially over. V and I celebrated our first anniversary last week. Of course, we've been together 4 1/2 years, so it was only officially the honeymoon phase.

It's been kind of a tough year though, so I'm not sure we got to enjoy our first year of marriage as much as we should have. Sure, there were plenty of good times too. But the miscarriage and unemployment overshadowed a lot of it.

I'm hoping our second year is just a little easier on us. We're kicking it off with a vacation that we probably can't afford but is desperately needed. We need to get away from ovulation and pregnancy tests, from the uncertainty of my career path, from the stresses of co parenting with his ex.

Our life has never been easy, but it's not a bad life. In fact, it's mostly a great life. We usually have to struggle a bit before things work out, and I think that's what ultimately defines us as a couple.

So here's to year two. A year that has the potential to be both wonderful and life- changing.

Happy Anniversary, V. You're the best husband and father anyone could ever ask for.


  1. Happy Anniversary! Here's to many, many more, and to happy days in between them, too!

  2. Happy Anniversary!! I love your blog... I wish you posted daily.

  3. Happy anniversary! I think a vacation is exactly the right choice.

  4. Hi there!
    I just wanted to let you know I enjoy your blog - I hope you haven't stopped writing as often because you think no-one is reading because I bet you have many people like me who don't usually comment, just read. I do that with most blogs - I follow about 40 (teaching and marriage) blogs and in the last year have probably commented three times! So, get those fingers typing lady - your fans are silently waiting! LOL
