He’s the King of One Liners. This husband of mine.
How does life feel to you? Full. Where are we going? Up. So I take it you like me? Baby, you’re as cool as the other side of the pillow.
Yep he’s got an answer for everything.
One night, when Justin & I were first married, I remember lying there and feeling the need to sort out all the mysteries of life & marriage all before we could go to sleep. Y’know….go ahead and get that out of the way and all. Made sense to me.
“So….what do you think it takes to have a good marriage?” I asked him in my most philosophical, pontificating voice.
He blinked at me through blurry eyes and heavy eyelids, and yawned as he flipped his pillow.
“Hmmmmmmm…soffffft pillows.” And he closed his eyes again.
And just like that I was furious. Flabergasted. Frustrated and fed up.
“Are you kidding me? I’m trying to talk to you about the mysteries of life, marriage and the universe and all you can give me is ‘soft pillows.’ Boy, you better wake up right now and….”
Through closed eyes and a smiling face, he raised one hand to stop me mid-sentence. Before I got really wound up.
“I said soft pillows because I think at the end of the day, no matter what has happened to us or what’s going on in the world outside….we should always have home and each other as a soft place to land. Get it….soft pilllows.”
“Oh….Yea….Soft Pillows. I *totally* knew that’s what you meant. Totally.” :)
And so it makes sense that last night as we had our first date night in the new house, it consisted of the very romantic task of us tackling two months worth of dirty laundry with our brand new, now fully functioning, LG stainless steel washer and dryer. With the True Steam technology. And of course, there was never any question that the first load would have to be our cozy flannel sheets and pillow cases. To make those soft pillows even softer. So that no matter what’s going on in the world outside or what happens during the day, we can start this new life of ours… with a soft place to land.
And now here’s something just for fun from our Miami wedding this past weekend. Much more from that coming very soon!
