So, you took the leap and decided to move in together. Maybe you got that apartment in the city, or a cute condo in the suburbs. As Monica from Friends would say, it's a whole new era! You're excited to have all of your stuff in one space, and that you'll be able to snuggle up with bae at the end of a long day. You've already spent some time wandering around IKEA, and maybe even made a toast in an empty room. You two have all your inside jokes, memories, and more, but moving in means new traditions for couples that you get to start, and continue forever.
Creating a new home together is kind of cool when you think about it. Sure, sharing spaces can be tricky, and we've learned from living with our college roommates that it takes some time to adjust to each other's schedules. You might not totally feel in sync with your significant other when you first move in, but you'll be oh-so-grateful that every night is now a sleepover. Hanging pictures, deciding who will take out the trash, and stocking up on all the best snacks for cozy nights spent staying in is better with your best friend by your side. Adventures are you favorite, and this is just the next one in your forever.
Traditions aren't just for the festive times of the years, and there are so many things you can do on the reg that will totally elevate your relationship and your life now that you're living together. We suggest you start with one of these seven things if you're a couple with a brand new set of keys.
