In ten weeks we get married! Preparing for a wedding is work.
But it is actually a great way to learn to work together. A week ago I was in Arizona with Jeri Lin and her family. We had a lot of work to get done that week. We looked for an apartment, did engagement pictures, and did gift registries among other things.
Thinking about apartment hunting and gift registries, those tasks are work. Doing either alone would be pretty dull, but doing them together was so enjoyable. One of the most important things in a marriage is to be able to work together and have fun doing mundane things.
Life is full of mundane things, but finding joy in them is the secret to a great life.
