So the day before my wedding, the women in my life got together for a little tea.
Here. Look familiar? Why, yes, it is the resort that Dirty Dancing was filmed at. It’s also pretty nearby to where I grew up. My sisters and I all have not-so-fond memories of summers spent waitressing there.
During that tea, my aunt had everyone write a bit of marriage advice on a piece of paper. So I think I will share a few and tell you how that advice is going so far. And if you have any nuggets of wisdom to share, please do!
Eat dinner together every night, if possible.
I say we do eat together most every night. Maybe once a week or so we’ll miss each other and end up eating grilled cheese over our laptops while studying. But generally we do eat together. I’m glad we’ve started this habit, because I think in years to come it will be more precious when its the only chance we get to sit down together with each other for the day. But for now we are usually spending our whole evening together, so eating together isn’t any more valuable than cooking together, or doing the dishes together. (HA! Just kidding. We never do dishes).
Communication is key! Be prepared to watch lots of sportscenter and Bachelorette with John!
Apparently I’ve drastically cut down on John’s time spent watching sports. I, on the other hand, have never watched so much sports. It’s all relative. I have taken up a mild interest in the Utah Jazz, and can almost name all the players. So – success. I bought some yarn and am working on a new hat to get me through March Madness.
