My eyes are still closed as I am half asleep when I hear him nearly every morning say, “My wife is so beautiful,” right before he leans in and gives me a kiss and tell me he loves me. My eye makeup that I thought I removed all of the night before is always on the bottom of my eyes, I have raccoon eyes, my hair’s a hot mess, I feel so unclean and unattractive and my breath is anything like a flower. Maybe like a dying bed of flowers. Yet, mornings are my absolute favorite part of the day with Benjamin.
People ask, “What’s it like being married?” All I can respond with is, “Fun!”
I’m not sure if all marriages are fun or if I’m married to one funny guy that I can enjoy life with. I asked Benjamin what he thought, and he said it was definitely because I’m married to him. See? Funny guy.
We were watching an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians (where Mr. calls it Keeping up with the Stupids), on E! We don’t like admitting that we’re a part of the Kardashian’s ratings but you can’t help but admit you can easily get sucked in. It was an episode of Kris talking about how the first 10 years of marriage with Kim’s dad and how they just couldn’t get enough of each other and couldn’t stand being away from each other – and that she didn’t even want him to go to work.
We both immediately looked at each other on the couch.
“I don’t want to/you to go to work!” we both said at the same time.
“I don’t even want to go to the toilet,” said Mr. Wonderful.
And then, I busted up laughing.
Diana Elizabeth will randomly take pictures of Benjamin when he doesn’t know. He says, “No blog photos!” But he’ll never know if he doesn’t read the blog posts! Haha!
