so we've been married for 7 1/2 years now. have 3 munchkins. a home. jobs. debt. no time....that is unless we take it, which is really really hard to do. finding a babysitter that is willing to take care of all of the kiddos is a feat in itself! but...this time is so so important. if we don't our days are full of reactions and if we do get to talk its over dinner and over our 3 year old daughter and 2 year old son! ha! by the time you actually get to sit down at the end of the day no words are exchanged because you just can't muster up the energy to say anything else! these are the days of our lives. don't get me wrong...they are full, full of laughter and tears and problem solving, and really full of love....just not much of the cuddly, whisperings of sweet nothings and reminders of the days you originally fell in love kind! so my 3 great things...oh and they are great! -e
#1 great thing. before #3 was born we booked a trip to mexico and finally got to go last month and it was delightful! we rested and ate and rested and ate and then did that some more and had more than our fair share of delicious drinks!! it was the most wonderful thing just to be with him, my man, uninterrupted. i love him. and it was so great to be able to feel and express that again!
(thanks to our parents for the munchkin love while we were away.)
#2 great thing. my man loves the avett brothers. so for christmas i gave him tickets to their new years eve show here, right down the street in our own hometown. he was so excited, and so was i. not because im in love with their music like he is but because i got to go on a date....to dinner and drinks and a concert, what? who gets to do that...not us!!!! usually! ha! it was a total blast to drink and eat and dance together. oh...it was amazing. we keep talking about the night!
#3 great thing. this man. he is the love of my life and i am so thankful for the way he loves me, our kiddos, jesus, and me...oh i said that already! he is truly wonderful and i am the luckiest girl to get to be married to my bestest friend and true soulmate! here's to you! thanks for being my dream!!! -e
