Between the Firsts

Today's topic for #LoveBlog is firsts. I can't even tell you how many ideas went through my head for this one. It made me realize that relationships are basically a series of firsts - first kiss, first love, first date, first goodbye, etc. I knew that I could pick any one of these topics and spin it in a million directions. There's something more important than the firsts though and that's what I decided to focus on today.

First word...first step...first date...first kiss...first kid. Life is full of firsts and milestones. These tend to be what we compile together for the story of our life. But what about everything in between? Doesn't it deserve a place of recognition?

I want you to take a moment and think about your favorite kiss or favorite date. Was it the first one? Probably not. That's because all of those in between moments hold a big spot in our lives too. Yet, they are often overlooked in conversation.

I just wanted to pop in today and give you a friendly reminder not to overlook those in between moments. Make note of them and keep them close to your heart because they are just as important as those milestone firsts.

Here's a few ways to track the in between moments:
- Jar
- Journal
- Scrapbook
- Box
- Photo album

However you choose to capture those in between moments, please make sure that you are! These are the moments that you're going to enjoy much more than your milestone firsts. Let's face it - firsts are often awkward and messy anyways!

  1. Awww, this is a super sweet way of looking at it! Since Joe and I have taken our relationship so slowly and steadily, I've always found it easier to look at our firsts more like points on a gradient...sort of one big long "in between" phase!
