Here's a lil' note
Just for you
It's gonna be short, but sweet
Just like me
Nope this isn't gonna rhyme
So I hope you don't mind
This is straight from the heart
Because you're my one and only
Happy Valentine's Day
We work because…
...You and I work at making this marriage the best it can possibly be!! Some days are easier than others but we never stop loving each other and we never forget how important this marriage is to us.
...I’m the crazy, never stops, mind always going kinda girl and you’re the cool, calm, collected one. You keep me in line and I keep you entertained. Works out just swell, don't ya think?!
...We have the same goals in life and strive every day to achieve those goals. We are always talking about goals and how we want to live and how we want our future to be. There's always a list in the house of things we need to do/want to do in order to accomplish these goals - individually and as a couple. And I like it!
...All I gotta do is make you a list and things get done without me having to be a nagging wife. It only took me a year to figure this out - which ain't too shabby if ya ask me haha - but I still wish you could just read my mind :)
...You always save the last bit of food for me to have, especially when it’s one of my favorite things! This melts my heart....every....single....time. True love right there.
...You’ll have dance parties with me in the kitchen. And with sweet ass dance moves like ours it's the best damn entertainment you've ever seen!!
...You cook AND clean!! That right there is all I need. Be jealous, girls, be jealous :)
...We both understand the importance of alone time/doing our own things. We give each other that space and time to be our own person. To do our own thang. And that makes us better people all around which of course makes this whole marriage thing that much sweeter!!
...You let me pop your zits. Yes, I love to pop zits. Yes, I admit this. Yes, I know it's weird. And no, I don't care. And you're A-Ok with all of this.
...We love each other’s friends and families. Though we don't spend as much time with our families and friends as we'd like, when we do, we both thoroughly enjoy it and love creating those memories.
...We’re each other’s number 1 fans and put each other first. Simple as that.
....You know 5 minutes into a movie I'm gonna be fast asleep (yes, I may even be sitting up still) and you'll gently wake me up enough so I lay down and let me sleep as you enjoy the movie.
...You remind me what’s really important in life when I start going down the ‘pity us’ path. I tend to get a bit crazy and overwhelmed and can focus on materialistic things. And I go down that ugly path of 'they make more money' and 'they have this, why don't we?!' But you are always there to straighten me out - bring me down to reality - and make me realize that we've got a lot of good going on. And I need that positivity in my life.
...You indulge in all the crafty projects I come up with. And trust me - since becoming a homeowner these projects are never ending. And yet you never complain. I love that you'll spend time working on projects with me (and that you actually like it!!)
...You don’t mind nor judge me when I have a meltdown. You just listen and let me vent, allow me to go a lil psycho (hello hormones!), you comfort, and then when it's all said and done we just move on with our day.
...You understand my love of food (and that come 10pm we NEED to head to kitchen to stuff our faces...I mean it's just what we do!) :)
...You do crazy things with me, even if you don’t really wanna (like train for a marathon!)
These are just a few reasons why we work. Overall, things are just natural for us. It's just who we are - just meant to be together - just meant to do the best we can with what we have - TOGETHER.
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
