In one week we will be making the trip to Alabama. I couldn't be more excited! Our plans consist of eating dinner with my best friends in Birmingham, hanging out at the Reeves and holding little baby Lenox for hours (my almost niece), shopping with my mom, & eating Big Bob's BBQ.
This past week I have not been in the mood to write a blog entry. I have felt very thoughtful but not vulnerable to write it down. In short, things have been good around here. On Sunday night I had an impulse to bake & ended up making 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies from scratch at 10 o'clock at night. (Awesome!) We watched cable & ate dinner with Matthew's parents on Monday. And on Tuesday I went to my first Ranger's baseball game. We ate hotdogs, kettle corn, & drank overpriced diet cokes. It was fabulous. I have not felt that 'all American' in f.o.r.e.v.e.r.
On another note I will offer a few of my thoughts on marriage. Before Matthew & I got married everyone told me that "marriage is so much fun" and now I can say that it is! I never knew I could feel this way about another person. Yes, it may all sound cheesy or cliche but it is all true. Matthew is my best friend and he has taught me so much in the few months we have been here together. I have noticed change in myself: I am at ease. I don't feel anxious, I don't feel uptight, I laugh a whole lot more about things & I sleep a whole lot better. Yes, I know that these 'changes' could have happened by another means but I like the plan that God has had all along. I'm thankful that the Lord is showing the Gospel to us in our marriage and that He is growing us in ways I couldn't have imagined a year ago. I praise Him for marriage today.
