Sometimes You Gotta Get a Little Mushy...

We sat down to watch Friends With Benefits last night. And it got me thinking...

I am so lucky to be married to my best friend.

While the movie wasn't the best of all time, I still enjoyed it because I was sitting down next to my friend who I could laugh with, and who didn't judge me when I teared up a bit, and who doesn't mind pausing the movie a thousands times for me to pee since I had a little too much lemonade. Someone I can have sex with even if my legs aren't perfectly shaven.

When I get home every day, I am determined to not hang out with him. There's things I have to do! I tell myself -- and him -- over & over again. There's business plans I want to put down on paper, and blogs I want to read, and books on my shelf untouched. But then I think, What's more important? And I find myself setting aside my social media, my computer, my plans & just hanging out with my guy.

cute, mushy things like this come out when I write a post like this:
This is my new Facebook Cover photo. I kinda love it!!
AND if you want a custom one made for you... email me.

The simplicity of it all is what draws me in. How a simple few hours sitting on the couch watching a bad movie can really make me happier! My time is valuable, and I find value in my relationship. I find inspiration from it, and drive from it. I'm motivated to do great things when I'm happy at home, and my funks are shorter & fewer in between.

I find myself writing mushy posts the night before I'm set to publish them, because I chose to blow it off for something more important to me. I like it that way. It's what keeps me going. I write these marriage posts because I love marriage. It's tough sometimes, sure. But it's worth the tough. I like that I have memories with this person. And a future.

Go out today & remember the simplicity of love. ♥

Have a Lovely Thursday


  1. This is my view on it, as well!! Fabulous for us and our marriage. Not so fab for our poor little house. I need to clean so bad, but tv is just more fun... and important.

  2. I totally agree with you on this post. My husband and I are busy people with work so when we can just veg on the couch and watch the shows we like it's nice. I also enjoy dragging him to a movie every once in awhile like I did last weekend when we saw " The Hunger Games". I think sometimes when you've been married for awhile you get busy and over taken with things that need to be done in the house, but it's important to spend time together because maintaining your relationship with your husband will last a lot longer than clean dishes or folded laundry.

  3. I love this. I have been trying to be more intentional with my time. You are so right that spending time with my husband is more important than reading one more blog. Yay marriage!

  4. Great post! I also am luck enough to be married to my best friend, and it couldn't be more amazing! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. Mushy posts are totally awesome! I feel exactly the same about my husband. I was really lucky to have found a guy that doesnt mind sleeping with a prickly legged girl or one that wears his underwear to bed haha. Ahh, the joys of marrying your best friend.

  6. I'm not typically a mushy person, but sometimes it just comes out. When you love someone, these things just happen :)

  7. And this is e part of the day when I start crying, damn you, pms

  8. What an adorable post. It is so sweet to know your best friend is the one you married:) I agree to that!

  9. I love this! I married my high school sweetheart and he makes each day so much better. It's good to be reminded!
