I don’t talk about the Hubs here very often. He’s pretty private and I try to respect that as much as possible. So I’ll keep this short and simple.
Marriage can be hard- anyone who tells you differently lives a much more charmed life than I do. Moves, demanding jobs, infertility, miscarriages, raising two kids, owning two businesses on top of our normal 9-5 jobs- all those things take a toll on a relationship. It’s easy to start taking each other for granted, to put everything else first except each other. And the Hubs and I have been guilty of that.
But at the end of the day, we love each other deeply. We fight for each other and stand by each other. We know that our marriage and our family is our top priority. Neither one of us is given to sweeping gestures and declarations of love. Instead, we show each other our love through cars warmed up and scraped off on a cold winter’s morning. By remembering each others favorite food when we surprise the other one with takeout. By DVRing random movies we think the other person may like. By asking each other every day how the others day was and ending every phone conversation with an “I love you.”
I’m very lucky to be married to the man that I am. Our good days vastly outweigh our bad ones and when things do get crazy, the Hubs is the one I want to face every day with.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
