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.

Love Always,

The Cover Stealer

  1. LOL. The cover stealer is lucky to have a guy who allows her to steal the covers and jab him with her knees every night. Too cute.

  2. My husband and I have been together almost 7 years and I can certainly see a change in myself since being with him. And the great thing about it is that he never tried to change me. He appreciated me for who I was. The changes I see in myself are all voluntary and I love it. Each day I strive to be a better spouse and to love my husband better without having to be prompted.

    • That truly is a beautiful thing! I love your sentiment of striving to be a better spouse all on your own. That has to be contagious in your marriage and breed nothing but good results!

  3. 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…

    this is so beautiful!!! i love that you both can grow/mature/change together and respect each other’s respective growth path. that is sooooo important!! ppl dont stay the same forever but it takes true love and commitment to appreciate that in a spouse.

    your love/marriage inspires me. i, too, hope that one day i can say the above thing to my future husband, whoever he may be and whenever we do unite. thanks for this post!!

    • Aww, Gemmieboo (LOVE that name, btw) – thank you! When you get married I’ll be sure to repost this comment as my well wish to you and your husband!

  4. I love that pic of Mober! Awww, ok so I was just talking to someone (Moni) about life’s changes and how it might be difficult to adapt to them when you are married. This post was awesome and I love that you still take time to celebrate your love. I still remember the day you two got married and I cried like a baby when you signed “Dangerously in Love”…I can tell you still share that love…<3

    *sidebar* THAT bed though? *swoons*

    • Thanks, sugar plum! That was taken when C.C. was about two weeks old. I can’t believe how much time has passed since then. And please don’t get me to crying thinking about my wedding day and how much love was in that room that day! Ok, that’ it…I’m watching the video this weekend! LOL And yeah, I was swooning over that bed too! #yahmon

  5. Lovely post & beautifully written letter to your husband. BTW my husband is a cover hog! LOL

  6. I’m not married, but I can totally understand where you’re coming from. People change, things change, and relationships evolve. And sometimes in order to make room for that evolution, you need to make changes. And sometimes that change is simply a bigger bed.

  7. Beautiful post, Amber.
