Do you go all out for Valentine’s Day?
I don’t. Often I think of ideas a day late. Or in cases like this year.. maybe four days late. Somewhere online I saw a cute little print for Valentine’s Day that said “I love everything about you”. Before I found out where to get it.. I started thinking about the sentiment. I (in fact) don’t love everything about my husband.
The longer I’m married, the more aware I am that what I had before was a crush. This crazy idea of marrying and staying committed to one person for the rest of my life is a lot of work. Love is hard.
It’s a good thing I like hard work.
Working on marriage doesn’t always feel productive, and yet when I look back, I see we’re moving in the right direction. We’ve built something sweet. And it’s way nicer than that crush.
