Dress? h&m (old) Shoes? Ralph Lauren, DSW (here) Belt? Michael Kors, Winners Clutch? Thrifted
Matt and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary over the weekend (a wedding pic here if you are interested). We had a lazy day that included some garage sales, beach time and dressing up to enjoy a patio for a couple hours on a hot summer evening. It goes without saying that I took the 'dressing up' more seriously than Matt did...
Sometimes being married for 6 years feels like a long time and sometimes it feels like we are just novices at this marriage thing. We argued the other day (the only time we have ever argued obviously...) about food choices at fall fairs. What the ratio of healthy food to deep fried food should be and if it should be mandated. It sounds so stupid and it was. I stopped halfway through a heated rant to ask 'are we really fighting over this?' and when it was confirmed that, yes, we were, I continued on full steam ahead. We just needed to get that out of our system.
Sometimes we fight about more important things than the food at the fair. Sometimes I have a bad day. Sometimes Matt has a bad day. Sometimes it just is a bad day. But most of the time we are really blessed. There is not a night that I don't go to bed thankful to have Matt and his groan inducing, but well timed, puns in my life. I'm also grateful for his dimples, that cat towel he gave me and the poly blend golf shirts he always wears to work. Those golf shirts are the ugliest thing of life but just as he is never embarrassed of my fashion statements, I have learned to just let it go... Best of all, those shirts dry easily and sometimes it's just nice to just cry your problems (or your hormonal swings) unto the shoulder of one who loves you.
Thank you Matt for being you. And for letting me be me.
