One month ago today the Beanstalks got married! I can’t believe a month has flown by, yet at the same time it feels like it has been ages since we were surrounded by our family saying our vows in Florida. You might be wondering, how does it feel to be married? To be honest, it feels pretty much the same. Nothing has changed in our relationship, but at the same time something has…we’re actually married! Referring to him as my husband is still taking some getting used to. I actually called him my “fiance” last week! Oops!
Being married is amazing and we both couldn’t be happier! I have a partner in life to share everything with. He makes me laugh and always is able to cheer me up whenever I’m down or having a bad day. If I had to say one thing that is different now that we are married, it is knowing that I have someone to take care of me forever. There’s a sense of security and protection I now feel that is more prominent than when we were just dating.
So in a nutshell, that’s our relationship after the wedding. How about my life…how has that been post-wedding? Again, I will use my word of the day…amazing! Before the wedding, my days consisted of DIY projects and various wedding tasks. For the 15 months we were engaged, our wedding was my life! It’s all I thought about or talked about with my family. I was a huge DIY bride, so almost every day was filled with shopping trips to gather supplies or crafting. But the funny thing is, I enjoyed every minute of it. Yes, it got crazy stressful at times, especially the last two months, but I wouldn’t change a thing. Even as we approached the last few days leading up to the wedding (a time when most brides are completely over wedding DIY crafts) and I had to cut certain projects, I kept wishing for the same thing…more time (so that I could tackle even more)!
With that said, now that the wedding is over, a BIG portion of my life has become free again. I actually am able to relax and just chill out on my days off or when I come home from work (something I couldn’t do before).
With all of this free time, I’ve been able to catch up on some TV shows I hadn’t watched in years. For the past two weeks Gossip Girl has consumed my life! My sister and I stopped watching at season three (when Chuck gets shot) because life got in the way (actually our DVR broke and when we got the new one, we forgot to program GG and sort of stopped watching). Two weeks ago, I was flipping the channels and saw that GG was on. After a few minutes, I was hooked, again. The next day I started watching season five (where I left off) on Netflix and have been utterly consumed by the Upper East Side since! I love it! Watching countless episodes of Gossip Girl was something I could not do pre-wedding because I just didn’t have time! So hive, if you’ve wondered where I’ve been lately…it’s in front of my computer watching GG!

Even though our wedding was a month ago, I still frequent my favorite bridal blogs (daily). I still glance at wedding magazines at the book store, and wedding shows still are beyond entertaining to me. I love weddings. I have a feeling I always will. They just are so magical.
How has your life changed after your wedding? What have you done with all of your new free time?
