13 years of officially loving you! 16 years of officially declaring to the world that I am yours and you are mine!
What a roller coaster baby - there have been many ups and there have been many downs - but we continue to ride the wave! Thank you for loving me the way you do and supporting me in all of my dreams! I'm so glad you are mine!
So what has 13 years of being married taught me?
It's never going to be easy - there will be good days and there will be bad days - but as long as there is trust, love and open 2 way communication - we got this!
Never go to bed on a fight - this one is hard - he can hit the pillow and snore - me I toss and turn and plot his death #kidding
You don't have to have the same interests - just an appreciation and respect of what the other loves - like waking him up at midnight because that's when the tide is best and dragging his ass to the beach so he can fish - it's cold and a little windy… so Womble and I stay curled up in the car and watch - but the look on his face when he comes running up with his 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th flatty is all worth it! And I know once that tide turns we get to go home and snuggle in bed until sunrise when he drags my ass out of bed and takes me to the beach and sits in the car bahahahaha
Support each other's dreams - I couldn't do this without him! He not only supports me, but inspires me! He's got my back when it's a rough day and reminds me of my end game and he is a supporting ear and words of rationale when I'm struggling with an idea.
I'm not alone even when he's not near! I miss him every day and can't wait to see him when he gets home or I get home even if its late and he's snoring his ass off!
That date nights should never end. It's tough! Let's be real he's up at 4 and then not home til 6 and he's tired - he works incredibly hard! We both do! But date nights don't have to be going out - they can be netflix and takeaway crawled up on the couch! And the thought does count!!!
Never stop holding hands or planting kisses - intimacy is key!
Listen with your ears and your heart - hear the words that are unspoken!
Be each others best mate! You know the person that you can't wait to share everything with - your day, the stars and the moon - the stupid meme you found on Facebook!
Grow old gracefully - not - never stop hanging shit on each other about how old and wrinkly your both getting or how saggy your B's are getting! It's gonna happen!
"I'm sorry" - only say it when you mean it! And if your not - talk about it! You can be sorry for being a dick but you don't have to be sorry for why you were - as long as you can communicate it!
You're not always right - this one sucks! Because of course I am (mostly)… ok sometimes…. But read above step ;)
You'll never stop replacing toilet rolls and picking up his shit! And whining about it!
There's never enough time to do all the things we love or want to do…
Never stop laughing….
Never stop dreaming and work hard together to get that dream!!!!
What's your secret or your advice for a happy marriage - would love to hear your thoughts!!
