We celebrate a month of our marriage today! Ro and I!We!Us! Exactly a month ago, we got married. How time flies. Its strange too, a month and I still dont feel married. Thats in a good way! I havent changed. He hasnt let me. Maybe I have become a tad bit responsible and a little less talkative but I seem to be getting more resilient these days. So as I watched the Internet guy make my home a wifi zone, I thoought this should be my first post from my zone, dedicated to my man. Its funny, I always thought married couples were complicated. I was wrong. Its fun. Marriage is fun and you know you are happily married….
… when he laughs at the jokes she cracks, even the ones she doesn’t find funny
…when see you soon becomes that one thing she simply loves typing
… when she is doing experimental, creative cooking and he says it is yummy
…when she says good morning with a happy and satisfied face and really means it
… when she goes hyper over the silliest things and all he does is listen. Intently. That’s all she needed in the first place
… when right after a day of work and 2 hours in the traffic,he drives 300 km just to take her to a place that she had mentioned she wanted to see and herself forgot about it.
… stupid, baseless arguments. Anywhere. Home, elevators, cars, parking lots, airports. And feeling very stupid about them later.
… when he downloads all seasons of Grey’s Anatomy just for her to see, if ever she gets bored.
… when she sings to him and he falls asleep smiling
… when her feet finds his beneathe the comforter at night, even after another nonsensical fight
… when he spends precious morning minutes explaining routes to the city and then says he will come and pick her up.
… when opening the door for him when he returns from work becomes the best time of her day
… eating cheap chinese and feeling like it was the best dinner ever
… when he gulps down that black coffee she made with a smile and then asking her to make sure she puts sugar in the cup the next time
… finding out that the one place where she can really be herself, with all her hits and misses, is in those hugs he gives her everyday
… discovering the joy of being in the kitchen together
… wondering why tickets have suddenly started costing twice of what they used to 😉
…making budget cuts and realising that some things are so useless! Like hand cream, face cream, leg cream. Thats why they have one body lotion na!
… when he pretends that she is the boss, and she revels in the glory of her recent promotion 😛
… learning to put his white shirts separately in the washing machine so they don’t end up pink 🙂
…hiding his once blue shirt and praying that he forgets about it!
… sharing dreams. Career, family, children – life
… rediscovering the good things in life they had recently forgotten. Like ice cream!
…when he eats ice cream for 1dhm so that she can have her 8 dhm galaxy ice cream:(
… financial planning. A lot of it!
… when he learns to live with a female 😛
… unsolicited advice/ feedback. On everything starting from the amount of oil and jeera in food to her blog posts
… when she wakes up in the middle of the night and listens to his quiet snoring, looks at his childlike innocence and then falls asleep with a smile on her face
… everything that shared smiles can mean
… when he launches into one of his drunken ramblings and she falls off the chair laughing and wondering how someone can be so sane and so, so mad at the same time
… finding this little place with beige walls and one balcony many months ago, and making a home out of it.
… the smell of morning coffee
… when he wonders why the bathroom in his one time bachelor pad has suddenly been smelling a tropical haven
… going grocery shopping together, and for some strange reason, laughing through the fact that one whole cover went missing
… when his car becomes “their” and yet the gyaan on banging the car door too hard never stops
… a little bit of knowing and a lot of discovering
… the camaraderie, the friendship, this knowledge that they are growing up together, and that, many years from now, they will grow old together and will have a history of their own
… this comfortable, effortless, mad,everyday love..
Here’s to us! To a month of mad mad married life and to many many many more to come.
