I’m am tired today. Bags-under-my-eye’s-bags and sick-to-you-stomach tired, and it was totally worth it. Last night, Ben and I stayed up all night talking. Just talking, having fun, laughing, sharing, cuddling and enjoying being together. We were in bed reading books to wind down but started talking and kept going. We talked about our past and little details we both cherish.
We shared silly secrets (who knew we had any secrets after being married this long) and poked fun at the other.
We talked about the relationships that helped for each other into the person we were when we started ours. We talked about falling in love. We talked about how we love each other more now than we did back then.
We discussed the future, what we want for our family. We said many times how thankful we are for our little family right now.
At 3:30 AM we finally decided we should brush our teeth and go to sleep considering Ben had to be up for class by 7:00 AM.
Before we drifted off to sleep (and I consequently woke back up an hour later and was pretty much up the rest of the morning – stupid cough!) my husband looked at me and said “I am so blessed to have someone that after almost 4 years of marriage we can still stay up all night talking and having fun. I hope we can do the same thing 8 years from now and 20 years from now. I adore you.”
I adore him too.
