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
