I married the love of my life 5 months ago and while I never thought marriage changes much, it has. In the unexpected ways. I love Amanda and I know she loves me. We were committed for life before marriage but something about standing in front of those we love and cherish, sharing our hearts, vulnerably, to all was something I have never experienced.
There are so many things I try to do for her, for us everyday but somehow life is so busy all the time. How do people do it? How do you keep it fresh? I know we have this amazing beautiful love but I want to keep her on her toes with new fresh adventure. I love that we have made the comfort level of a long standing relationship, as it comes with a lot of certainty and calm. But I also want to be spontaneous. When we were first together, we went to Mexico, just told her to book off a week in a week and we went. We flew to LA for 3 days, just for fun. We would go to the zoo in Calgary. I would drive us somewhere and we would go for a crazy walk/hike. We would laugh and I looked forward to those adventures. We still are the same people but complacent, so what do YOU do to keep the excitement of love alive?
What are your thoughts?
