Even though it’s hard to admit, I’ve changed since getting married. OK I see you rolling your eyes. But hear me out: It was important to me not to change! I wanted to be the same chicka, the same friend, the same person.
I didn’t want to be that girl who you hear about. The one who was pretending to have a life but was actually just sitting around waiting to get married to have a life. And for whatever reason I somehow interpreted it to mean I couldn’t change at all.
So here it is. The great reveal.
Top Five Ways I’ve Changed Since Getting Married

- Kitchen Meltdowns. I’ve never had these before. Not that I can recall. But now there’s something developing in me. I want to…cook amazing food for my husband. And then if I screw it up I have a meltdown cause I’m so disappointed. What the what!?!
- Sushi. Just kidding. I still don’t like it and usually duck out of plans including it (sorry husband).
I’m curious to know how marriage has changed you (if you’re married)?
One more thing. I think you’ll enjoy my free resource library. This is where I keep my files, downloads, ebooks, worksheets and whatever else I manage to create. I love sharing what I learn and want to keep adding to this library so it becomes a wealth of helpful goodness.
