Calling In Love

December 28, 2010

“Aren’t you that gal that was gettin’ married?”


“How’d that work out for ya?”

“Pretty good.”

Yesterday, my husband (!) (we’ll call him P) and I celebrated our One Month Wedding Anniversary. We got out our beautiful wedding crystal and celebrated one of the best months of our lives; a beautiful wedding with all of our family and friends, a (yes-I-will-have-another-strawberry-pinacolda) honeymoon to the Riviera Maya, moving-in together, and (a merry) Christmas (plus bonuses)!  

Of course…every day of our first month of marriage was not perfect–getting back to waking up at 5:30am for work, battling the (piercing) Chicago (lake effect’s) winter, soapy coffee, post-wedding depression, post-honeymoon depression, Christmas shopping on State Street, jealously over P having two weeks off for vacation versus my measly two days, cranky baking (all me), and P wearing his public pants (pants worn while riding the El) on the couch. NOT PUBLIC PANTS!!!

But every mundane, unsmiling moment, only made us cherish the better moments all the more. So, while yesterday we recognized our 30 days of married love, and my parents’ 35 years (!!!), it was a true celebration. Of the good moments and the bad.

So, raise your wedding crystal (or your red solo cups) to marriage, friends, favorite TV shows (Modern Family), terrible TV shows (Two and a Half Men), perfect cups of coffee, burnt cups of coffee, Fantasy Football (good and bad, depending on your point of view), and love and un-love.

Oh yes, and I won’t be at work tomorrow. I’m calling in love.
