Welcome! I'm a newlywed who started this blog to document the planning of our September 2010 wedding, and ended up addicted to blogging! Follow our journey through life as we try to find the way to our "perfect" marriage. Happy reading!

A few of my friends told me that living with someone is a compromise.
Isn't life all about compromises anyway? So why the negative attitude towards cohabitation?
I'm happy to report that it's been 229 days since Chocolate Lover and I moved in together. That's approximately 7.5 months, which is 1.5 month longer than the turning point most of my friends warned me about. See, they said "wait until 6 months go by and you'll see!" They warned me of troubles stemming from incompatibilities that we never knew existed, and unpredictable emotional roller-coaster rides I wouldn't even begin to fathom.
Ahem... you were wrong!
Living with CL has been the best thing I've ever done. After 5 years of long distance, and a combined 60 trips to and from San Francisco and Vancouver, I think the fact that she likes toothpaste in a tube whereas I like it in a squeezable container, and that she wants to go on a two-week cleansing diet with me that is driving my manly eating habits ballistic, is the least of my concerns! The fact is that we can talk all afternoon long and not have to worry about the line disconnecting, or listen to my complaints that my ear is getting too warm from holding the telephone or that my bluetooth battery is dying. The fact is that we can cuddle and be close to each other for as long as we want and shut off everyone else who causes a stir in our lives.
The fact is, they were wrong. And I am looking forward to tons more!
