stick around, for lots of balls.

 so 3 years ago, about this time...i was on a plane, flying back to the good old US of A after my honeymoon (which, for the record, was amazing...but getting off an island on the other side of the globe was a BIT more work than i bargained for).

and yes...this means i totally forgot to blog for my ACTUAL anniversary. sue me.

and yes, this is the one and ONLY photo that features me and the hubs from our honeymoon. that lady in the middle is "mama". she has a restaurant in santorini. she called a guy a sex bomb. she rules.

ANYHOO, the whole point of this post is that i realize...i'm pretty sure our honeymoon phase is over. and has been for a REALLY long time.

now, before you go off and start calling dr. phil or dr. drew or dr. ruth to run some kind of marriage intervention on me...hear me out.

i'm GLAD that phase is over. because while it's awesome to be all lovey-dovey and smoochie-woochie and "omg you're my heart and my love and my life" bella swann on steroids...IT. GETS. OLD.

because life isn't like that. you're not ALWAYS gonna be like that. sometimes, you're gonna wanna punch your other half right in the balls. and sometimes, he's probably gonna wanna punch you in the lady balls.


it doesn't mean you don't love each other. it means you're both human. and sometimes...ball-punching thoughts happen. but at the end of the day, can you look at whoever you're with and say to yourself "if someone IS gonna punch me...i'm glad it's you"?

if're one of the lucky ones.

"You took the time to memorize me my feels my hopes and dreams
I just like hanging out with you all the time
All those times that you didn't leave it's been occurring to me 

i'd like to hang out with you for my whole life

Stay and i'll be loving you for quite some time

No one else is gonna love me when I get mad mad mad
So I think that it's best if we both stay stay stay stay" - Stay Stay Stay, Taylor Swift

i love my husband. but i also REALLY like him.

i hope you've got someone you like hanging out with too =)

I am so glad you wrote this. Happy belated anniversary! I've been thinking a lot about writing posts about relationships. Cause sometimes, I get sick of the drivel I see on blogs that proclaims "My husband makes me weak in the knees!!!!" and stuff like that. Cause, um, I don't buy that. I mean, I looooove Matt. AND I like him a lot. And I don't wanna be with anyone else, and I love going to bed with him every night (well actually, I go to bed about 2 hours after him every night, but you know).

But we totally argue. We had a fight Tuesday night b/c we were on a walk, and I wanted to walk faster, and he is slower than me, and we stood there at an intersection and bickered for 20 minutes about PACE. haha.

It's so important that we're able to talk openly about relationships, and not just present to the world this rose-colored idea of a "perfect" relationship. COME ON PEOPLE.

But still: happy anniversary! :)
