WHY YOU SHOULDN’T GET MARRIED FOR ROMANCE

It’s almost Christmas and it’s nutsville. Every one is scrambling. Life is chaotic. And in about 3 weeks, we’ll all be cozy in our jammies eating cookies for breakfast. But in the midst of the crazy, I had a thought. After a conversation with a young one about marriage, I thought I’d set the record straight. For her. For me. For everyone. Because it’s Christmas. And I like to be honest. I’m crazy about my husband. I’m just putting it out there. There are moments I think he is an absolute shit head yes. But overall, I’m crazy about him. Like, crazy in love for that guy. 100 percent. 

TILL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH

Till the ends of the earth. This is what my Daddy has always said to my Mother in front of our faces. The only thing I’ve ever known about their marriage for sure, is that their commitment to be together till the ends of the earth, is for sure. The only reason I know this is because he’s repeatedly said it to her every day of my life and she has smiled back for 49 years now and counting.



BOYFRIEND APPROVAL

I don’t remember the exact comments my Dad most recently made about one of my ex’s. But the sentiment was very poignant. Because it wasn’t great. In fact, it was brutally honest. And he didn’t utter a word at the time I was dating him. But looking back, I saw the signs. Dad knew he wasn’t right for me. And so did I. But I had to learn that one on my own.
