What a terrible blogger I’ve become! I haven’t updated since mother’s day and let’s be honest…it was a good attempt but nothing to write home about.
So what have I been doing? Well, I just had my FIRST YEAR anniversary 10 days ago! I know! So exciting! We took a romantic vacation up to Lake Muskoka and stayed at a resort where we sat in the hottub, ate cookies in bed, had an AMAZING steak dinner and then finished the weekend with the most relaxing couple’s massage I have ever had. Am I a lucky wifey or what? On the actual day, I made Christopher his favorite dinner and chocolate cake. He seemed very happy with that idea. Men are a lot less difficult to please though. Free food? They’re there.
So what have I learned over the past year? Well, looking back this year has been incredibly difficult. A lot of changes have occurred, so it’s hard to pinpoint one take-away. Mostly I think I learned that it is very important to give 100% of yourself to the relationship. It isn’t 50/50. It’s 100/100. If either partner is giving any less than 100% of themselves to the relationship the other person feels cheated and rightfully so.
One of the biggest changes we’ve had to make is deciding to move to Boston for Christopher’s MBA program! We are both thrilled about the move and more updates will follow. If any of my readers are familiar with Boston, please let me know your thoughts on where to live. We will be looking at places starting in July! We can’t wait!
Here are a couple photos we took to honor our First Year as a married couple! Enjoy!
