Why we work.

9:51:00 AM

A few weeks back a couple of my friends and I were hanging out, like we do once every week, for drinks and conversation. The topic of relationships & why some work while others don't came up which got me thinking...

What makes Andrew and I click?!

As we are just three months away from our two year anniversary I was thinking about this today so I figured what better way than to put it in words.

We are crazy & out there together. Sometimes I think, "What would someone think if they just peeked in on us right now." like that crazy together & I love it. He truly is one of the only people I am in no way self conscious around... I definitely let my freak flag fly when we are together {just ask him lol}

We are our own people. This is something that has taken me some time to really appreciate. We are two separate people who have chosen to spend our lives together, but that doesn't mean we have to be one person, we don't have to do everything together. There's something to be said about having your own space, your own interests. Like I said, it has taken a lot of time for me to really appreciate this aspect of our relationship but I am definitely starting to see the upsides. I, personally, don't think it's healthy to do everything together all of the time, we constantly communicate with one another about what we each have going on, every single day we learn something new about one another and I absolutely love that. {Of course, we have tons of hobbies and activities that we do together too :)}

Building off of the last one, we are independent individuals. We both have our jobs, our education's and we aren't dependent on one another for anything but we choose to be together, and in times of need, take care of each other. It's a beautiful thing to choose your partner instead of needing them.

We balance each other out completely. I'm more outgoing, sociable and love to entertain people. Him, not so much, he is a very relaxed and low key type of person. My favorite example though, I am not a morning person. He is completely a morning person, to the point I get aggravated. I just don't get how someone can have so much energy just waking up... I need two or three cups of coffee to just compete with his mood in the morning.

We fight. Plain and simple. We aren't afraid to say what we think, when we think it. We aren't afraid to be brutally honest, even if it makes the other extremely mad. {which we will both attest to that we have had moments of sheer frustration with each other} We are the farthest thing from a "perfect" couple & that's okay, heck that's how it's supposed to be. Marriage, not supposed to be easy, it takes a lot of work and just when you think you are ready to give up, you just have to fight that much harder.

At the end of the day, no matter what, we love each other. We choose each other. As aggravated as we can get with one another there's no one else I'd rather be aggravated with. I couldn't of picked a better person to spend my life with, to have a family with, to grow old with.
