A New Normal

It was like any other morning, my eyes opened as the sunlight came into the room. I raised my arms over my head and stretched as best I could with a certain someones arm draped over my shoulders. Slowly lifting his arm to free myself, I swung my legs over the edge of the bed and stood up.  It felt like most mornings, but something was definitely different.  

I padded down the stairs to the kitchen. Our kitchen. I reached for the coffee mugs and filled each with the delicious nectar. Our coffee mugs. I tiptoed, bare feet on the cold hardwood floor through the living room back to the staircase. Our living room.  

I stopped and took it all in. It smelled new. It felt new.

It is new.  

 There is no longer the question of your house or mine. There aren’t overnight bags packed just to get ready for work the next morning. There is no more “let me check with the roommate”. The man I love is my new “roommate” and I couldn’t possibly be any happier than I am right now.

      SIX YEARS?! Oh my word. God bless you for waiting that long- I was so tired of ubering home because there was no parking at his apartment or getting to his place and realizing I left something back at mine. Its been nice to know that all of my stuff is in the house, I’m not sure where at the moment but its there! ha ps. I love the photos of the new place!

    This. This. This. I was driving the other day and randomly thought about how cool it is that we all live with our significant others now. There is something that makes that so wonderful. I am so beyond happy and excited for you and Chris. You have a beautiful life now and it will only get better. xoxoxoxo

    EEK! So so exciting :) I recently moved in with my boyfriend as well and had the exact same feeling! It seems so odd… yet seems so normal at the same time!
