I often stop by a blog called The Glamorous Life of a Housewife to read what is on her joyful heart. Whitney is the sister of my husbands best friend from high school. Did you get that? Anyways, I feel like I know her even though I have only met her a couple of times. She is an excellent writer, and exudes her joy and love for family and life through her blog. Last week she did a little series about her love for her husband, and one post was dedicated to their first year of marriage. They had such a fun spontaneous year, always there for each other and always enjoying the good and the hard.

For some the first year of marriage was really hard. For others like Whitney, it was a very joyful time. Eric and I had a fantastic first year of marriage. It was so fun and so bonding. We had one car with no A/C and a 1 1/2 hour daily commute in Southern California. We were living in a tiny apartment, we didn't know a single person in the town we moved to, I couldn't cook, etc etc. All that to say, we were young and in love and having a blast! I want my marriage to always be like that. I want to always enjoy one another no matter what. But as I am realizing, it takes a little more work to make the fun happen later in marriage. We are more exhausted because of young children, we have more responsibility, we have less alone time, etc etc.
So, my question is...Was your first year of marriage fun or a train wreck? And what do you and your husband do to keep things fun now that you have been married for a little while?
