We work because he legitimately gets concerned when I take an unexpected hiatus from blogging. No joke, two days ago he gave me the most worried look and asked if I was okay because I haven't blogged in forever...my bad.
We work because he listens to me ramble on and on and on...and on.
We work because he treats me like princess. Duh.
We work because we like to do things together.
We work because sometimes we also like to do things apart - and that's okay.
We work because we both talk to and treat our dogs like they're real people.
We work because we respect each other and always always put each other first.
We work because we both wear glasses and we both find it nerdly amusing when we make out with them on.
We work because we both have dreams bigger than reality and we know if we ever actually chased them down we'd do it hand in hand.
We work because we appreciate and support each other's interests, even if they're different from our own.
We work because we both have really great taste in socks.
We work because he tells me the zit on my forehead isn't really that big...even when it is.
We work because we're not afraid to fight with each other. We get angry and we talk about it. Sometimes we yell about it. And then we fix it and make up.
We work because we knew each other in our "awkward" phase and still managed to be ridiculously attracted to each other.
We work because we have fun together - whether we're going out with friends or just sitting on the couch, it's always fun.
We work because we love our families. And we love each other's families.
We work because we both appreciate lazy Saturday Netflix marathons.
We work because we literally tried everything we could think of to not work in high school.
We work because we know we have to. It's the only option there is. He's my husband and I'm his wife and we made a promise to work forever. We work because we don't break promises.
Why does your relationship work?
And happy almost love day y'all! If there's anyone out there that doesn't like Valentine's Day, I challenge you to go volunteer in an elementary-aged classroom for the day. No one can dislike Valentine's Day after spending it with children ages 5-10. Seriously. They'll change your mind about the whole thing.
