Today, I'm doing a link up with a link up! I know, I'm cray. But I really love both of these link-ups and I think today is the perfect day for them to mash together. 

It's Wednesday, so of course, I'm doing wedding Wednesday... but it's also the first week for #morethanaframe which I am really excited about. So here we go!

Monday night I posted a glorious food picture on Instagram. It's a beautiful salad with shrimp, corn, bacon, and avocado with a lemon-herb vinaigrette. Seriously, yum. We've already both decided that we will be making it again. 

But there's more to it than just a salad. This first week for #morethanaframe is about joy. While I am joyful about the shrimp and avocado, I am way more joyful about the entire dinner making process with my husband. Throughout these first 52 days of our newlywed wife, I have loved making dinner with him. 

I am joyful that I can cook for two people now instead of just myself. It's so much more rewarding and fun.
I am joyful that my husband will pick shrimp tails off for me while I dry roast the corn. 
I am joyful that we can use the new avocado 3 in 1 tool that I absolutely should have thought of. 
I am joyful that he is an excellent chopper. He loves to chop and I think it's wonderful. 
I am joyful that he is embracing the fact that I want to eat gluten-free and is respectful of that decision.
I am joyful that he is not a picky eater. It makes looking for new recipes exciting because I know he will try it and if he doesn't like it will just say, "It's not my favorite!"
I am joyful that before he began chopping the shrimp and I yelled "WAIT!" he said, "You want to take a picture before I chop them?" He is the best boy behind the blog.
I am joyful that my husband wants to be in the kitchen with me and helping me prepare dinner.

It's good for the soul. It's my favorite date night. And it is so much more than just a food frame.
