a love letter: to the man who takes me on walks

Dear Husband,
We had a fight today.
It was stupid; something about laundry and bills. I was upset and maybe cried a little bit because I'm hormonal. You were upset too, unfortunately without the excuse of hormones. I practiced being dramatic and huffed down the stairs, where you followed, gave up and then huffed right back up them again. We managed to stay that way for a good, solid 15 minutes {even though it seemed longer} and we huffed and puffed in our own respective corners. I didn't tell you, but I was so worried that we had ruined our whole day. I had plans, you know. It was supposed to be lovely outside, and you were looking kind of adorable in your Sperries. {I wasn't thinking that though, because I was mad of course} I had assumed all was lost.
But I should have known better ... because, as I've discovered before, but always seem to forget, you've never been very good at staying mad at me for long. Before I had even decided to not be upset anymore ... there you were, with your arm around me on the couch, saying how very much you hate it when we're at odds. I finally released the tears {a necessity for moving forward with anything during PMS} and you comforted me, saying how sorry you were and pledged to make everything all right. And then ... you did.
You took me on a walk: the sun was shining, everything was green and we were holding hands again. We talked about the pro's and con's of white picket fences, took some pictures and I was reminded, as I have been so many times before, of how very much I love you. And how nothing, no ... not even laundry and bills ... can ruin a day when I remember that.

Thanks for the walk,
Wife

Love it. Thanks for the lift and reminder that normal couples fight and make-up. :)

we fight and make up over the dumbest things. Marriage is weird! But I would rather be fighting and making up over dumb things like laundry and bills with my hubby than anyone else!

Someday, I will find a man that does things like this. I'm so glad I found this post of yours, Sydney! It's lovely :)

Best thing I have ever read. I almost cried because I know this feeling.
