When does the so-called "honeymoon period" really end? Some say as quickly as three months. I've always gone with two years. That is, after all, when you're no longer a newlywed according to the genius creators of the classic game show The Newlywed Game. If you remember, couples were only eligible to appear on the show to answer questions about where they "make whoopee" if they had been married for two years or less.

When you have to start replacing the gifts you received for your wedding.
That's right. Over the past few months, My Director and I have had to let go of and replace some of the items we were so excited to scan with that little radar gun in the aisles of Macy's and Crate & Barrel ten years ago. Ten years. We will celebrate a decade of marriage in December. I still feel young and in love. I love My Director just as much if not more than I did that chilly December day we said our vows in Pennsylvania.
Sadly, however, we are no longer newlyweds. All because we have bright new fluffy bath towels. All because we've replaced our pots and pans, the ones with the poisonous peeling Teflon, with new stainless steel ones. Somehow our original silverware started disappearing. Forks and spoons mysteriously escaping like wayward socks. The last straw? Our toaster oven stopped toasting. How depressing:

I get a bit more nostalgic when it comes to getting rid of Peanut's things. Like I did with the stroller here.
