#3 Top Ten Reasons It's You and No One Else



Because you say the wrong thing quite often, but almost never to me. I'm always beautiful, never stupid, never fat, never less than any other woman, always trying to do the right thing- in your eyes I am the best version of myself and because you see me this way I am a better person than I would have been, and much better looking, too.

You learned how to put aside your fears and comfort me when I am afraid. I learned how to put aside my sadness and comfort you when you are sad. We learned together that the simplest rule is crucial for marriage: take turns.

Then we learned if you absolutely can't take turns, don't tear each other to shreds when you're trapped in the same cage. We're all in this together.

Your ass is awesome. It's fresh.

Once you made your way to an underpass and gave a man and a woman all the money in your wallet.

You take baths all the time. I knock on the door and you laugh and me and ask why I'm knocking on the door. I reply you could be masturbating! pooping! and you laugh again, the pages of your book wet, your face kind and attentive. You say What's up, sweetie. I love the way you say What's up, sweetie. I love that you never make me feel like I'm interrupting you. Even though when I'm on the computer, I can't say the same.

When I'm dying I hope I get to hear you talking to me. I hope I hear your voice.

You made Ever Elizabeth with me.

I want to take Lola to Disneyland, you told me, just the two of us.

We've been married 8 years and haven't run out of things to talk about. You're my person,
you tell me. And you are mine.

What a fabulous, loving post, Maggie. I hope your love for each other grows deeper & stronger as the years go by.

(PS: I bought my newest great niece a baby badass onesie with the tattoo sleeves which I saw on your blog. Her dad is tattooed from head to toe and I can't wait to see his face when I give it to him for her. She's only 2 weeks old and a real beauty). Thanks for sponsoring such great folks!!

Love & Blessings,
Marion

Well, you've got it.



If you've got it now?


You can't lose it.



After twenty-two years, I'd kill a thousand motherfuckers to get to within an a mile of my beautiful wife.


You two?


Got it goin' on.

This almost made me cry Maggie! I love that you have this love; it brings this palpable sweet sexy sassiness to some of the stress and saddness that you live.

"You learned how to put aside your fears and comfort me when I am afraid. I learned how to put aside my sadness and comfort you when you are sad. We learned together that the simplest rule is crucial for marriage: take turns." This has to be one of the smkartest things I have ever heard amd was exactly, what I needed to read this morning. Thank you!

I love this post. I especially agree that the most important rule in marriage is to take turns being the one who is sad or frustrated or all used up. beautiful.
