Whoops, looks like I'm a little behind! Time has simply gotten away from me this week, and before we knew it my scheduled post was 3 days late.
This month has been truly fabulous! We had our first house guests, got a new puppy, and so much more; but the main thing that I have loved about our 7th month of marriage is how easy it's become. We are finally getting into a routine here and it feels so good. Our life here now feels normal and comfortable. For awhile I felt like settling in here was like a prolonged vacation and might never happen. It was nice, but you just looked forward to your normal routine and comfort of home. I feel like this month has been huge for both of us in this way, and now we actually feel at home here. We've spend a lot more time with our new friends, and overall just feel more content with our decision to live here.
Piper has brought another huge change, as our family had grown to 2 boxer furbabies! Although Piper is too cute for words, she is proving to be a holy terror in super soft little puppy fur. She is biting and chewing everything to the point that we are now annoyed. It is not cute, it hurts! BADLY! I am bound and determinded to break her of this habit ASAP, considering my arms now have claw and teeth marks to prove it! At first we thought it was kind of cute, because she was little and didn't know any better. Well, now we're getting serious! 10 weeks old is not too young to get in trouble. Puppy discipline starts today!
After being married for 7 months, I can truly say that we are our own little family with our own routines and way of doing things. It feels so nice to no longer be caught in that in between/transition phase anymore, and I truly feel blessed to have CAhusband, Reilly, and Piper (sharp puppy teeth and all) to come home to each day! Now that we truly feel settled here, I can't wait to see what the next few months will bring.
