Are you kidding me?
One of my favorite magazines is “Real Simple” (many thanks to Hannah for my first subscription to it!). There was a little section this month about love, where readers wrote in their response to the following question:
“What is the most surprising thing about love?”
Julia in Cincinnati answered:
The process of slowly falling in love with the really unexpected things about someone. For example, I am totally smitten with the way my fiance, Jason, smells early in the morning, after a long night of sleep. It’s so human and so absolutely him that I can’t help but inhale and snuggle up.
WHAT? I love my husband. I really, really do. And it’s not like he has a problem with body odor. But for real, the last thing I want to do in the morning is smell him. My breath stinks, his breath stinks, and I really just can’t wait to brush my teeth and take a shower.
I can’t be the only one, right? Right?
In this month’s issue there was also this really sweet article about couples who have been married 50 years or more. I loved it, and I think you will, too.
