Last week, we celebrated 2 years of marriage *insert applause here* However, it feels like we’ve been married longer so I had to check the year we got married (via Facebook), lol. Maybe it’s because we’ve been together so long (5 years prior to marriage).
Husband: Time flies when you’re having fun.
I told you I thought it was weird that we didn’t do a big celebration. I think we approach most holidays like that (such as Valentine’s Day at Panera Bread), why is that?
Husband: We both have better things to do.
Since last year, we started a couple of businesses. So we live together and occasionally work together, yikes! Just kidding, I would rather have you as coworker. Plus, it’s not like we haven’t been coworkers before.
Husband: This is true.
We just found out you passed the last exam necessary to become a licensed architect! How do you feel?
Husband: Before I found out I passed, I envisioned getting the results early in the morning, playing Kool & the Gang’s “Celebration” and jumping in the bed and waking you up. But I didn’t think you would appreciate it. I feel like a tremendous burden has been lifted, now I can develop my own projects (both commercial and residential) and help upcoming architects. I just encouraged one of my coworkers to start taking his exam.
We have a lot of things planned for 2017, do you want to talk about some of those things?
Husband: We are on track to start developing tiny homes, we are going to kick off our travel agenda, we are about to become homeowners, and you finishing school and becoming Dr. Kelly for the 99 and the 2000 (Juvenile reference).
Do you think I’ve changed since our last anniversary? Good? Bad? Do I even care? Lol.
Husband: I think you’ve changed for the better. You are more conscious of who you are, your abilities and how your actions affect others.
Basically, I am getting soft. Over the past year, I think we’ve exchanged rolls a bit. Historically, I am a very action-oriented, do-it-right-now person but have been very hesitant about a lot of things; however, you’re like “just do it!” And, you even got me together about my dissertation. Basically, you told me stop being scary, wrap it up, and that it’s just a paper. Do you want to talk about that?
Husband: I told you to stop being a little b****
Basically. I also want to mention a little ritual we have. Every morning and night, we talk about what we are grateful for, recite affirmations then a prayer. How do you you think that’s impact us?
Husband: A couple of those affirmations have come to pass.
Anything we should work on this year?
Husband: Having more faith in spite of what’s in front of us.
Any advice for anyone who wants to get married, engaged or newlyweds?
Husband: RUN, sike! Make sure you like the person you’re marrying. It seems obvious but you’d be surprised how many people get this wrong.
I think that’s great advice! I would also like to add “fed wife, happy life.”
