We can have really bizarre thoughts and just look at each other and know the other is thinking the exact same thing.
Our date nights usually involve pajamas or at least really comfortable clothes because they are at-home more often than not.
While we can talk big about some relaxing vacation for two on an island somewhere, when it comes time to actually plan, we go with a family vacation.
Romantic gestures include taking the trash out or heating up the car on a cold day.
I think that makes it official: I am part of an boring old married couple.
This weekend marks our twelfth wedding anniversary.
While we had some bumps during those years and definitely not the easiest time of it back in the beginning, especially when we first starting having kids(lack of sleep, complete change in our normal, I think a lot of couples with babies can relate), those are pretty far behind us.
We might be boring, but there’s comfort in security, in knowing your husband is there for you no matter what.
Our day to day married life doesn’t give me anything dramatic to share. No good blog posts or facebook rants from me on our dramatic love life because it’s not dramatic.
I still occasionally read chick lit and the ups and downs and drama make for an interesting story, making it all seem so romantic and exciting and like some sort of fairy tale, something to get swept away in.
Our story isn’t like that now.
From the outside, it does look boring.
But it’s not really.
I love my husband. I love knowing we’re there for each other. He amazes me with all he does for our family and others. How hard he works, how easily he can make me laugh, how we never end a conversation without saying “I love you.”
I’ll take this “boring” over the “excitement” of dramatic ups and downs any day.
Any day for many, many more years to come.
