You know how you get REALLY into a show on Netflix?! You’re emotionally invested in the characters and what happens to them. “Are you SERIOUS?! They just killed off my FAVORITE character!!” But you stick with it because you’re on this emotional roller coaster for better or for worse. You’ve been binge watching it for days now. And then………
What do I do? What do I watch? What happens now?!
You’ve just entered “show hole.” Something so real….they’ve actually created a phrase for this feeling of “what now the f*** do I do now?!”
It got me thinking about…weddings, of course. Don’t we ALL go into the binge planning phase for weddings?!
But then, what happens after the wedding day?
Once the day is over…it’s like, “What now?! What do I do with my time now that I’m not discussing: the flower colors, managing the RSVPs, writing the checks ($$ <–You’re actually glad this part is over…lol), and scouring Pinterest for the most original guest favors? WHAT DO I DO?!” Because, literally, the last year of your life has been planning for this one day to be the PERFECT representation of you and your husband.
But here’s the thing. You can’t just go back to your life as it was BW (before wedding) because your life is different now! You’ve entered into a new chapter.
And that’s the best part. Realizing that the wedding is actually the beginning of the rest of your life together. Finding your new routine as a couple. Buying your “forever” house. Doing all of the little weekend projects that will make it your home. Don’t even get me started on babies. (eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!) Maybe it’s too soon, maybe it’s not. Or maybe it’s time for a furbaby. Soon, your little family of two will grow and evolve. And you’ll have to find a new routine for your everyday…until something else changes or something big happens. But don’t worry, it’s all a part of the journey. To not only know where you’re going, but also how you got there.
One day at a time. 🙂
I love these new “Day in the Life” sessions! I want to send out a special thanks to Michael and Liz for showing me their new home and being my guinea pigs! I love watching your journey! ♥
