Since being married to Lyle, I now watch Seinfeld, know comic book characters, crave sandwiches, can name Packers players and watch the games religiously. I eat caesar salads & love places such as Betos, Rumbi and Jimmy Johns. I try to steer clear of rompers, watched the whole season of Breaking Bad & deal with claustrophobic cuddling at night. I am forced to think tennis is a cool sport, I play ping pong whenever theres a table and feel like all our loads of laundry are Lyle’s socks. Since being married, I think its safe to say my life and I have changed.
Since being married to me, Lyle only gets medium rare steaks, watches friends and knows more lyrics to country songs than he would like. He knows designers, owns a pup and frequently carries my purse when we are out shopping. He sleeps in a very cold house, joined a soccer team and watches far too many murder mystery shows. He willingly participates in photo shoots, goes running/hiking and helps with the dishes.
Together we don’t have a t.v. in our bedroom, own a Vivint system & jam out to Weezer and Luke Bryan. We dance super awkwardly and inappropriately when no one is around and then wonder if other people do the same weird things. We fall asleep on the couch half the time, split food at restaurants and live for pazookies. We have traveled to 13 countries since being married, bought a home, lived in 2 places and sometimes live like nomads. We have balanced time between Texas, Maryland and Utah, our three homes. We think more about fur babies than human babies. (because for those asking, no, 2 years does not automatically mean baby time for everyone, I love my life right now)
We’ve argue about serious things such as family and Lyle’s job and not so serious things such as what sports our kids will play or their names for that matter, and if Lyle is making fun of Luke Bryan or not by “singing like him.” There are more good times than bad with this boy and I am grateful for that. We have accomplished so much in these past two years and I am so grateful for every experience we have had. The bad times have brought us closer, showed us who or what is most important and have been times of learning. I would marry Lyle all over again in a heartbeat. Even though Lyle and I didn’t know each other even a year by the time we got married I have loved learning new things about him and growing together. I never try to make marriage look better than it is…it’s seriously the best having someone to be silly with, travel with and split a Beto’s burrito with. I can’t wait for all the exciting adventures this next year holds for us. I love you Lyle J.
P.S.-here are some of my favorite photos that we got done for our anniversary.
Portraitsbyandra (her name on insta) is AMAZING. I love the lighting in her images and how easy she was to work with. I am so excited to put these up all over our home. You should check her out.
