Endless Sleepovers

Yesterday my nana called to check up on me and just say hello. It's been a few months since we talked last... She asked me how married life is and what our favorite things to do is. I went on for awhile talking about how much I love being married and work. 

The very first thing that came into my head when she asked what's some of our favorite things to do... was sleep.

It sounded kinda dumb/lame coming out of my mouth first, and I quickly had to follow it and come up with some other fun things we love to do.... But I really do love sleeping next to him. It's one of my favorite things. 

When we dated, we would be out as late as possible. Going to bed after midnight was completely normally and if we were in bed by midnight it was actually early and a miracle. 

Our bedtimes have changed dramatically though being married. It's so nice going to bed early and waking up early and not feeling completely drained all day running on no sleep. 

We are normally in bed around the 9-o-clocks and read some scriptures together and then plug in our speakers to the laptop and watch some Harry Potter in bed. We have been doing a movie marathon, watching parts of the movies each night, normally around a half hour segments....sometimes less... sometimes more if it's really intense and good. 

So basically I'm just journaling about how we are turning into old people and love going to bed early and can't make it through an entire movie without falling asleep... Married life is awesome. 

But seriously, it's so fun sleeping together and waking up next to each other. When we are under the covers and he holds me I feel peace and feel safe and the whole world is silent. Life is good married and sharing it with someone. 

Last night, in the middle of the night... I got soo thirsty and was kinda half awake. Riley rolled over and saw me awake and asked in his sleepy voice if I was cold and okay. I said just thirsty but was too lazy to get out of bed. He got up without a hesitation and got me and drink and then proceeded to pull up the blanket that had moved to the floor and pull it up over me and crawled in next to me close, and then he kissed my forehead and we went back to sleep. I love these moments and being married to Riley.

  1. This is so lovely. ❤️❤️❤️ It makes me want to go to bed early and wake up early! And to read our scriptures before movies. Usually we watch part of a movie and I fall asleep at some point, then we go to bed and are so sleepy to read scriptures. Oops. Time for a change!
