Today’s not a special day. In fact, it really is a typical one. Amy and I woke up this morning at 6:45am to my alarm, then at 6:47am to her alarm, then once more at 6:55 when we realized we were still in bed. We took a shower together and then made the bed together. She got ready for work as I made some bagels for breakfast and we talked about what has been going on at work for both of us.
I don’t have to wake up so early, I could sleep in, and I have a few times. But starting my day without her is like starting a day without sunlight. I really need that time in the morning with her. It’s not just me though. The other night I was feeling pretty sick, and she could have gone to hang out with her friends at the young married bible study we go to on Tuesdays, but instead she stayed home, waited on me hand & foot , and we watched a movie together.
We don’t really go out as much as we could. We’re working on setting a budget, trying to work exercise into our life, and trying to learn Italian together – all of which have had their ups and downs. Our life is really one big work in progress, but I wouldn’t trade it for any other one. I’m happy, fulfilled, and still just as in love now as I was in that mallmachine-polaroid from the week before I asked her to marry me.
So… when I said in my last post that I had a lack of free time to play with the new blogger. It is really because I have chosen wisely how to allocate the time that I have. I love you Amy and the last 3 years, 9 months, and 3 days have been filled with the greatest moments of my life.
