Dougie and I celebrated 9 years of being married in the beginning of this month! .
We always joke around and congratulate ourselves on still being married considering how many of us don’t stay married.
One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was getting up at 5:30 in the morning to have tea or coffee with him in bed. It’s not always easy, even though I do like an early start, but it is always worth it.
We chat about nothing and everything and put ourselves first before the kids and work and chores. We give each other our best energy before we ge too tired and cranky by the evening.
We both always feel the lack of it whenever we are on vacation or one of us is sick or away, and so it has been 2 years since we started this tradition and it has been a marriage saver! That and a bi weekly game of a tennis and a bite to eat.
So my happy thoughts are “I love Dougie”.
