Tonight I was driving home from Ikea thinking about how weird it was that I was alone in the car. I had decided to make an unnecessary run for kid's cups, bowls, and plates and well, you know... you just want to go to Ikea. So I did. But back to driving home- For some reason I was looking at the purpley-pinkish California skyline and noticing the palm tree silhouettes and thinking about how picturesque that is. I mean, really, it's probably the most California thing there is. Looking at that had me missing Josh. At that moment I wanted to turn my head to Josh and be like, "Oh, hey, look at the sky... isn't it awesome?" but I couldn't because he was home with Wyatt. And I missed him. It was really a simple moment.
I think that's what it's like when you've been married for almost 8 years. Your love is much more simpler? Is that it? I don't know. I think back at when we were first married, and while it was a mix of immaturity and not knowing what we were doing, everything was WAY more intense. And not in a good way sometimes. Our fights were ridiculous! Too much drama about everything! You don't like what I made for dinner? OMGGGGGGGGGG BUT DO YOU THINK I'M A GOOD COOK? I'M TRYING TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS FOR YOU! (I was 18... yeah)
Our spats now are just dumb trivial stuff. It usually ends in an eye roll and we keep on doing whatever we were doing in the day. We don't need to fight to the death, and we can still throw our legs on each other while watching Swamp People on the couch. We're very comfortable together and have so much confidence in our marriage. There is no question that we'll be together as long as we're alive. But we've known that since we were 16 :)
