Romance Wednesday: The Case of the Cover Stealer
Something very minor happened the other night that inspired today’s post. My husband and I went back and forth about who sleeps worse at night. He always pleads his case about how I’m the one with the sub-par sleep habits. I’m the cover stealer, the knee sticker-outer, and the pillow hog. I told him that he’s mistaken if he thinks he sleeps like a board all night (LOL). Despite the semantics, I concluded that we simply need a bigger bed! It’s strange because I know that neither of us has grown physically – but all of a sudden the bed just doesn’t feel big enough. We’ve had this one since we got married and whenever we move again, we’ll definitely be upgrading to king size.
I think marriage, or just life in general can be that way, too. You’re essentially the same person that you’ve always been, but over time your life’s experiences cause you to outgrow some of the things about your life that you’re used to. Without getting too deep here, what I’m trying to say is that in life, love, and marriage, things change. And you have to be ready to change with it.
So to my husband: thank you for changing with me. We’ve evolved so much as individuals and as a couple over the last (almost) five years. From the beginning you’ve given me the space to mature and develop into the woman I am today…and I’m forever grateful for that. I look forward to so many more years of growing with you together – as spouses, lovers, parents, and friends.
