Love Is...

Love means something to different to everyone, but lately I've been thinking about how fortunate I feel to have a rock-solid marriage. Jared is truly my partner in crime life and I can't even really remember a time before we were together. Which is how I like it :) Going through a lot of our ridiculous photobooth pictures lately got me thinking about what love is to us.

Love is... DVRing a Bengals game and waiting an hour past kickoff to start it, when your husband will be home from practice. Avoiding social media is SO difficult! #sacrifice

Love is... doing the chores your significant other dislikes the most. I wash dishes, Jared takes out trash.

Love is... giving each other space when needed, but checking in for a quick hug/hello when that's needed too.

Love is... putting your cold toes on your husband and him allowing it (after a quick yelp, of course) ;)

Love is... texting entirely in emoji's and knowing exactly what the other one means.

Love is... packing lunches for each other and sneaking in a cute note that'll make the other's day.

Love is... being able to talk about anything and everything- silly or serious, and never get tired of discussing, debating and challenging each other. Politics, religion, science, pop culture- you name it, we discuss it.

Love is... giggling in bed for hours over the dumbest Youtube videos we can find and not caring about how tired we'll be in the morning.

Love is... getting through the tough stuff together and just knowing that sometimes life is gonna' flat out suck and we have to lean on each other.

Love is... coming up with key words/phrases that only we know the meaning of. It comes in handy in public or social settings sometimes.

Love is...encouraging each other countless times and always, always supporting each other. I love you, Jared!

  2. LOVE this! I can totally cosign DVR'ing a game and having to wait, and sending a text of nothing but emojis and us both knowing exactly what it means. Priceless <3

  11. So cute, you guys do the cutest pictures together. And while my husband and I don't watch youtube videos together, we do stay up late just chatting in bed and don't care how tired we'll be the next day. We should just start going to bed earlier, haha.
