The "Honeymoon" Phase of #JuliaRoberts2015

Getting married has honestly been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. The idea of committing ones-self to only one other person for the rest of your life seems like the kind of thing that would be terrifying, but so far I have been completely fine with it.

"The One Where They Got Married" #juliaroberts2015
Posted by Jacquie Watkins on Saturday, July 25, 2015

Even though the day-to-day events of Julia's and my life since we got married are basically unchanged (finalizing wedding stuff obviously notwithstanding), everything feels very different. Getting home and seeing Julia's beautiful, smiling face is that much nicer, going and running errands as she recovers from her excellent party on Saturday feels like no effort at all. I know we're still fully in the "honeymoon" phase of the marriage, but I think we are both acutely aware of the fact that this is going to take work. More importantly, Julia and I should easily be able to put aside our minor squabbles and disagreements, and focus on what really matters, our life together and our mutual happiness.

We are still fully entrenched in post-wedding business, like writing thank yous to everybody who was SO generous this past week, with their time and with their love, and our friends and family have proven to us just how much they care about our future together. I can't wait to get started!

At what point do we change #JuliaRoberts2015 to #JuliaRobertsForever?
