I have a good friend from college that is getting married in a few months, and that has got me thinking back on the days when Jeremy and I were first married. They were great days and (probably because my memory is a little faulty) all I remember is roses and sunshine. Well, not literally cause we lived in a basement apartment with very few windows, and we were too poor to buy roses, but you know what I mean.
So here's a list of my favorite things from the pre-kids era.
*grocery shopping together at Macey's
*sharing a car, so driving EVERYWHERE together
*waiting for each other to get out of class on campus
*listening to Jeremy go on and on about how dumb "The Daily Universe" (BYU's newspaper) is everyday...and then laughing at him because he would still read it everyday.
*game nights every Sunday with other kid-less friends
*having no money but not really realizing it
*buying one of our first big purchases, a BBQ, which at the time seemed like a big deal!
*listening to Jeremy's band play just about every weekend
*snowboarding together...back when I liked snowboarding
*taking social psychology together
*staying out late
*eating McDonald's, Hamburger Helper, or Rice-a-Roni & chicken for dinner just about every night.
*guaranteed nap every Sunday
*having NOTHING to do except driving to "the best place" with Kole and Dorothy. Always with Kole and Dorothy.
*uninterrupted sleep allllllllll night long
I'll stop there. While I love those days, here's the good thing about life: it can always get better. And for us it has.
