Things You Notice Once You're Married

The most delightful surprise: Neil hums and sings under his breath. All the time. In the kitchen. In the bathroom. While ironing. In the hall outside our apt. (I always know it's him before he even gets to the door). It's so cute. Maybe it's one of those thing that, after years and years, will get on my nerves. But I doubt it. It's such a happy sound. I worry more that, after years and years, I will have beat down his spirit (kids could accelerate this process) to the point that he stops humming and singing. Then I'd feel really bad and sad, too. So here's to a joyful sound that I hope continues forever!

That is a nice little thing to notice. Hey, I did not realize you had a blog! I am so happy I found you. And a belated congratulations on your wedding nuptials!

Thanks, Bille! Glad to see you here, too. Wow, you have great books, music, pics, recipes, crafts on your blog! You even speak Spanish. You are an "accomplished woman," as Mr. Darcy would say :)

It's so awesome to see all the little things that you couldn't have seen when you were dating :)

Thanks, Stephanie :) Life IS in quite an upswing for me lately. Minus towed cars, tickets, and un-blogged about (painful to think about) exorbitantly expensive fender-benders. Hm. Our existence is happy, though :)

True, true, Taralyn. It's a cool new dimension.
