Blueberry Peach Crisp
I’m so sore right now that I almost feel sick. That’s not normal. Those heavy lunges I did yesterday better be worth it long term when it comes to a rounder bum because right now IT REALLY DOESN’T SEEM LIKE IT.
So a ton of my friends told me that “you just feel different when you get married” so I’m still waiting for that. I don’t feel different at all. The only thing that’s different now is that we are trying to figure out our next adventure. Which is landscaping our backyard and traveling to Costa Rica and the Keys this year. But that’s it. That’s all that is different. We still go to work, still watch our shows at night, still get stressed out about the things at work, still spray weeds on weekends. It’s normal day-to-day stuff. Nothing is different. Which I’m fine with me because before marriage was really awesome anyways. So what is different about marriage? Riddle me that, please! Because I’d be totally cool with weeds just disappearing when you get married. That’s a thing, right?!
Our yard seriously looks so bad right now. I would say we are the worst on the block but luckily there is a man who refuses to fill his car tires with air and remove the broken trees from his yard after our wet snow storms. Thanks, neighbor, for looking way worse than us. I support you, sadly. There are just so many dandelions and dirt after we had to dig up the yard for a new sewer line and remove all the old bushes and trees for a new fence. All Jackson does is lie in the dirt all day. So our house is constantly dirty too. But we don’t want to call up a Lawn Doctor because when a landscape designer actually calls us back, we are going to dig up everything
I can’t believe I’m talking about landscape design. Is that how you know you’re married? When you talk about really boring sh*t. You always know when a women has a child because she talks about vomit, poop, and you see nipple on a regular basis. And married people talk about landscaping, I guess. Ugh, the worst.
Sorry, I’m too sore to talk anymore. I need to crawl back in bed until next Tuesday, when I’m no longer miserable. Damn working out.

It is true in my experience… once we got married things felt different but in the best way possible! We too, lived together before getting married so it wasn’t due to that, and we were dating for nearly 4 years before the “I Do’s” so, it also wasn’t that. It is tough to describe but the best way I can is this: you feel more connected; it’s deeper and kind of like you now have this deep, strong bond. It’s more so than anything we felt in 4 years of dating and I am happy to report that it continues that way (with hard work, of course! Marriage is TRULY hard work and commitment…) as time goes on. Maybe this doesn’t happen for everyone, but I think it is more common than not from what I hear others saying. But, that doesn’t mean anything is “wrong” with y’all! I say, do your thing and enjoy this time as newlyweds. Who cares what others experience? They aren’t married to y’all. 🙂
Congratulations on getting married! I got married in November and some people said it would feel different and some said it wouldn’t. My husband and I lived together for 3 years before we got married so we didn’t expect much to change, but I can honestly say something just feels different. A guy on a plane I was sitting next to put it perfectly: “The same, but closer.” That’s how we would both describe it. Happy landscaping adventures and keep these awesome recipes coming!
Congrats on getting married! Just curious, what brand of maple sugar do you use? I plan on making this recipe soon! 🙂
This looks amazeballs! I actually just got your latest cook book in the mail yesterday and am bursting at the seams with excitement. Its beautiful, btw. Also, my husband and I love how easy your books are to navigate- well done as always!
When it comes to marriage convos, we got married a year and a half ago and conversations pretty much boil down to how the WOD will be today, discussing how the refrigerator repair went and how we’re going to tackle painting kitchen cabinets….its like that Geico commercial “So, the squirrels are in the attic again…” But I love it! #marriedlife
No, I’m with you on this one, nothing really feels different after you get married if you have already been living together for a while. Crisps are one of my favorite desserts and once I can get my hands on come decent peaches, I will be trying this out.
My husband and I have been married for 6 months or is it 7 months… anyways, we just had a conversation the other night that neither of us thinks anything feels different. Like you said, we still have our same day to day routines just like we did before we got married. We have also been together FOREVER so we already have each other figured out. This looks so good, by the way!
I don’t think things really felt any different at first… but over time, I just feel like knowing that it’s FOREVER really gives you an extra level of comfort and support.
And yeah… being married with no kids = house stuff and trip planning! I’m turning 30 this year and if decorating a house and planning a trip to Hawaii is what it’s all about, I’m truly not sad about it.
I love that you admit that working out isn’t some golden “does-no-wrong” activity like a lot of other bloggers! I usually enjoy feeling a bit sore because I know that means I actually was successful in the gym but sometimes it just sucks. Thanks for being real 🙂
Embrace the garden! Plant some fabulous shit, and some tomatoes, and get a flame weeder. So much more fun. Also, dandelions are crazy nutritious and all parts can be eaten (well, I’d prolly pass on the fluffy seed heads). Sauté the greens or juice them. Roast the roots or out them in soups/stews. Landscaping doesn’t have to be boring!
Lunges do that to me too. They are the soremaker, which I like because then I can feel where change is happening….
Hopefully you can share your landscaping transformation when you get there. I love seeing what others do with their homes and gardens. Fortunately I live in the country where we all have dandelions and we just mow them down constantly in spring. I would not like to spray them because I heard they are the bees first source of food.
i’ve heard that too and hate killing them for that reason 🙁
Congratulations on getting married! I totally agree – I got married in December and I’m still waiting for it to “hit” me. We already lived together, so it mostly feels like a piece of paper and some (pretty) rings! The only thing that’s weird is when you call him your husband, and he calls you his wife – then it feels real!
Enjoy wedded bliss!
so so weird to call him that!
After we got married, people would always ask “so does married life different?” and I’d respond “Nope. It’s exactly the same and that’s fine!” You build a life with this person pre-marriage and (hopefully) you enjoy that person and life enough to marry it. So in my eyes, it shouldn’t change or be any different because I wouldn’t want it to be!
that’s how i feel too!
Congrats on your wedding, Juli! I have been a long time reader and fan.
In my opinion, if something changes after marriage, it’s not right.
I had the same level of commitment to my husband both before and after. He’s my best friend now, same as he was before.
I honestly can’t think of one thing that changed!
thanks so much, kate!!
I got married on new year’s eve last year. I don’t feel different at all… But I did save money on my taxes and car insurance so that’s a plus. I think when you’ve got a really good one everything feels a little different and special early on…after that it’s just doing life together.
Hahahaha when we got married absolutely NOTHING changed and I thought it was a big joke. Especially when people ask “so how’s married life?” … ummm the same as not married life?? Anyway, you just move along and then one day you’re like “whoa, wait, i’m MARRIED? For real?”. I don’t really know where I’m going with this but I just thought it was funny because I felt exactly the way you described when I got married. Oh, and we talked about our home renovation non stop for the longest time. Ugh, old people things.
This sounds delicious and I think I’m going to make it this weekend.
This looks awesome and can’t wait to make it! I made the Caramel Apple Crisp from your cookbook and it was as good as my Ina Garten recipe I use!! It was fantastic!!!!
Sore…you and me both! I did a crazy workout on Saturday morning with my trainer and although it wasn’t necessarily ab focused (just lots of using my core), my abs were so dang sore. The most sore they have ever been! So sore that it felt like I should have a chiseled 6-pack–if that makes sense. Today, the soreness is finally almost gone. Thank goodness! Just in time for another training session tonight! And yes, marriage does include a lot of everyday boring stuff but it’s definitely not all boring…sometimes boring is good! Hope you’re feeling better and not so sore today!
This post made me laugh out loud. I just got married in January and truly the only thing that feels different for me feeling more secure. We still do our regular stuff, too. Water the flowers, make dinner, read comic books, go to Crossfit…nothing has changed. Except I just feel safer. I can’t describe it.
And YES all married people talk about is landscaping/their houses. It’s all we’ve done since we got married. And then after the yard, it’s on to home renovation. Which I think someone else mentioned. I guess this is why being married is an “adult” thing? Because I feel like renovating your house and planting a bush is very adult-y. Same with spraying weeds. Time to add a section to the blog about home-style: landscaping, decorating etc. We all want to see it, Juli! I promise we do.
lol seriously, spraying weeds on my birthday is the most adult thing I’ve ever done. I’ll definitely start adding some decorating stuff!
I think that the wedding itself is not the most important part of a marriage. It’s just the pathway to a healthy and loving relationship that has yet to come, so I’m sure that how you feel after the wedding is normal! 🙂 Anyways, this is a wonderful recipe that is perfect for the summer! It looks delicious!!
Will we get to see before and after pictures of your backyard?
I’ll definitely take some!
