We’ve been improving our home little-by-little. Making it fit with our needs and making the most of what we have. We’ve decided to make the extra room our work area. When she have clients, she does their make-up here. On my end, I do my web development and remote calls in this room.
It feels like everything is just falling in their place. It feels natural to live together. There are things I don’t enjoy doing but she does. There are things I don’t mind doing but she just despise it. It takes little to no effort to take care of each other.
I can say that all these are just side-effect of our improving relationship. We handle disagreements better. We are more open discussing issues better, even if it’s not comfortable. There’s this sense of trust and contentment around the house that it reflects on how we interact.
When we’re just killing off time busy with our phones or before going to sleep, we frequently say: Ang saya natin ‘no?
This place will serve as our reminder to our whys. Why did we fall in love, why are we in this together, and why we should keep trying. Especially on times when we forget all those.
This will also be the place where we celebrate the little things. Cleaning our house, cooking and eating our breakfast, going for a dinner, or just fiddling with our phones. It’s part of us and it will all be here for us to remember.
Lastly this place will serve as a keepsake to our memories, something we can look back to. To watch our ever-changing selves and see how far we’ve come.
All this will unfold overtime and we are sure that this journey will be a rollercoaster ride as everybody says. We are looking forward to where it will take us. Welcome to our life as different individuals sharing our life together.
