Love

Today’s cuppa celebrates love.

My husband and I met in high school. Our first date was on April 21. Several years later, also on an April 21, he proposed.

We don’t have any special celebration plans to mark this anniversary today, but that doesn’t mean the day isn’t special to us. Perhaps that’s also a good way to characterize our relationship.

We’ve had oodles of great moments, lots of happiness and joy.

We’ve also had some heavy, tough, real moments when we’ve not been at our best.

Each day is meaningful and significant to us. Each day has been, and is, and will be a simple tribute to this life together that we continue to choose – intentionally, gladly, gratefully.

Housework

I respect neatniks and sometimes wish I were more like them. But I’ve gotten comfortable with who I am.

Most of the time, if the dishes are done, the laundry is folded, the trash is out, and the bathrooms are clean, I’m good. Bed-making optional, depending on mood. Grateful for my husband, who bought this cuppa cup as a joke and has never considered himself exempt from these responsibilities.

We are both glad our boys have outgrown LEGO. Cuts down on the sweeping.
