We talked about getting married this weekend.
And before you get excited, this is not THAT. So.
We talked about getting married and he pushed his plate away and looked at me. "Why do YOU want to get married?"
And I thought for a second.
Because words are important.
THESE words were important.
And I am a much better writer than talker, you guys.
I took a deep breath.
And I told him.
I told him that it's less about having someone at your house to make dinner for every night, and more about having someone that makes you better every day. It's about finding someone that you can build an extraordinary life together with.
Because if I'm going to get married again, it had better be something extraordinary.
There will be no halfway the second time around.
There will be no almost, no kind of, no maybe.
There will be no just okays, sort of, or just fines.
It will be for something extraordinary.
And I told him it was about witnessing each other's days.
And I told him it was about having someone that you know - beyond any kind of shadow of a doubt - that will always root for you.
And then I told him I wouldn't say yes unless there was a big, giant, shiny, huge ring involved. Because #priorities.
I'm sure if you looked at him now, he's probably still sweating.
ALL of this is just to say that tonight, as you’re putting kids to bed, or cleaning up dirty dishes, or folding laundry (ALL THE LAUNDRY, YOU GUYS), maybe take a second and really, REALLY look at your spouse.
Tell them you love them.
And tell them that the life you're building together?
Every single day is worth it.
Every single day is extraordinary.

I love, love, love flannel sheets and I am really passionate about lists on post it notes and most of the time I'm sad that no one else is as excited as I am about Diet Mountain Dew. I also adore run-on sentences. And if you need an awesome virtual assistant, who is full of personality and really good jokes? Email me. I'm your girl.
