This man never fails to make me smile. He will sing country songs to me, he will tackle me and he will squeeze me tight until I can’t breath anymore just to make me smile. I guess after thirteen years, you learn what makes another person tick. You learn their quirks and their loves (mine is Harry Potter and hot chocolate). You learn what makes them sad and what makes them laugh.
Today, Ben and I are celebrating THIRTEEN years together (yeah, I can’t believe it’s been that long either!). And as we are going through a normal Sunday together riding in his truck coming home from church this morning, I looked over at Ben and said “I just love doing life with you.” Yes I love the traveling and big things we do together, but I also love all the day-to-day things with Ben too. I love snoozing the alarm a few too many times to get in some extra cuddle time. I love driving in the car with Ben, holding his hand in the passenger seat. I love sitting down over a gourmet dinner of mac-n-cheese and hotdogs and talking about our day. I love making faces at him in our bathroom as we are brushing our teeth before bed. And I love our back snuggles because we can’t fall asleep snuggling like normal people.
I know I’m a little sappy today, but I have every reason to love on this man after 13 years!
