Marriage, Me

Dear Husband, You are appreciated…

Dear husband, Thank you. For loving me the same at my best and worst. For knowing when I'm acting frustrated about one thing because I'm actually worried about something else, even when I don't recognize it.

Love Sprinkles

We'll be celebrating 10 years of marriage next year. That concept has yet to actually make sense in my brain. I remember hearing people speak of 10 year anniversaries and it seemed like such a futuristic event in my mind. Like flying cars and robots cleaning the house.

It's learning each other's routine and strange… Continue reading Beyond the Fabric

Rogue One: An Imperfect Date Story

(You'll understand the title a little later. It makes me chuckle a little too hard.) At one time, I had extra time to get all dressed up for a date, including actually shaving my legs. I'm talking really shaved, not just the quarter leg quick shave. I could look close in a mirror to pluck… Continue reading Rogue One: An Imperfect Date Story

Unlucky Beans

Very few people know about this story. It's one of those things you just choose not to share to avoid looking completely incompetent. I'm only sharing it now, because everyone is entitled to a few dumb moments in life. Maybe this one will make you feel better about yours. I was trying to be lucky.… Continue reading Unlucky Beans
