In just over two weeks, Jorden and I will be celebrating our 11th anniversary. Yay! It’s amazing how much can change in a marriage over 11 years – everything from what we talk about to how we spend our time to how and when and why we argue. Yep, it’s all different….which I guess is a good thing. (I’d hate to be stuck in the same rut for 11 years!)
For the most part, the changes just make sense. They’re part of a natural progression that goes along with the rest of our lives. We have 4 kids, so we spend a lot of time talking about them. We rarely go on dates, so when we do, we like to really treat ourselves! And when it comes to arguing, well, I’d like to think we argue better than we did 11 years ago. Although that’s probably up for debate.
And then there are the changes that neither of us would have seen coming. The little things in both of our lives that inevitably affect our marriage in different ways. Issues with friendships and work and family….and for me, challenges with being a work at home mom (something I never would have envisioned for myself).
As silly as it sounds, one of the things I struggle with most as a work at home mom is jealousy. Especially when it comes to some of the “perks” of Jorden’s job. Namely….those involving FOOD! Seriously, it sometimes feels like sheer torture hearing about all the amazing lunches and dinners he gets to enjoy “on the job”. Sushi? Tapas? Seafood? Yes, please! But alas, my reality is more along the lines of grilled cheese and tomato soup. Harrumph.
It’s probably why I look forward to weekends so much…not just for the chance to relax and have fun, but for the good food that typically comes along with them! And it’s probably why I love having people over on weekends…because it gives me a reason to make (and eat) ALL the delicious food! One of my new favorites? This Bacon Cheddar Ranch Corn Dip! Seriously, I could eat it by the spoonful. It’s creamy and cheesy and made with fresh corn and BACON…which, as we all know, makes everything better. Including 11 years of marriage.
