New wife can't cook. Only one frying pan anyway, and no plates. Wedding presents haven't arrived yet. Not much in fridge. Haven't grocery shopped yet. Don't own any chairs. No couch, either.
But here are two bowls! And she *does* know how to boil an egg, and the frying pan is juuust deep enough to get some water boiling, and microwaved bread is as good as toast, plus who needs chairs anyway when there's a beautiful hardwood floor and an old rug to sit on? It's a picnic!
And just like that, our first night in our little newlywed apartment was the most perfect Saturday evening a girl could ask for.
Because really, when you're just starting out, it's all an adventure.
