How to Be a Newlywed: Show and Tell Monday

Hey Everyone! I am trying a new link party to day with From Mrs. To Mama. I love her blog and I figured it was time for me to get involved. She posted a few questions and I have already posted on most of the topics so instead of repeating the same old same old I figured I would try to delve into something a little deeper. If you want to see our Wedding or Love story CLICK HERE.

Now I know I have been married for 9 short months so I do not have vast marital advice and would never claim to,but I am an expert at being a newlywed. So maybe a trip back to that first year of marriage would keep so many marriages from failing. So here is my top 5 list of how to live like a newlywed.

1. Say I Love YOU! I know that in this first couple months of marriage we have said I love you more than ever. I know I need to hear it, I love to hear it and I want to hear it. I don't ever want to stop saying it. Those three words have the ability to completely change my mood. If I am feeling a bit annoyed with my Hubby, which is more than I would like to admit, I find if I point out how much I love him instead of how annoying he is being things tend to go a lot better.
2. Spend Time Together- Every moment together is a great one and I sure hope that never changes. Our free time is together time and that's how we like it. I know one day we will have kids and more responsibilities and I truly hope that we we always find time for each other. 
3. Be Sensitive to What Your Other Half Needs. I know these past few months we have learned more about each other than the WHOLE time we were dating. We are learning how the other one like to be treated when we are sick, mad, sad, ect. We are actively trying to understand the other one and what works now might not work in 10 years our needs and wants change as we get older. If we always try this our priority we will hopefully be able to have a long happy marriage.
4. LAUGH!!!! I can not stress this one enough. I hope we never loose our silly side. I struggle with this sometimes because life can get you down easily if you let it. Being a grown up is hard and having another person in your life all the time is hard but if we are able to laugh at ourselves life is a lot better.
5. Do things like it was your first time. Everything is so special when its your first time, but should that be the only time it is special? I don't think so! I know every moment is not going to be a fairy tale but if we take the time to make a diner here and there extra special it will be a little closer to one. I love to get dressed up when we go out or decorate the Condo all out for a holiday. It makes everything feel new.

This is great advice not only for newlyweds, but for those who've been married a long time too. I think it's really easy to let time and happenstance make you forget why you fell in love with your partner in the first place, so anything you can do to keep those feelings alive and well is definitely important.
