Because I love him

If we are home, Neal and I rarely eat without Noah. But tonight is different, Noah has been fed and bathed early, and is currently curled up in bed with some warm milk and a DVD. I am in the kitchen preparing this evenings supper, and Neal is still out fishing. We had been invited to the opening night of Christmas in Wonderland at All Manor of Events, however we have opted for a night in, just the two of us.

We, Neal and I have not always had the smoothest of relationships, and there have been times I have loved him in spite of, not because of. And I am pretty confident he has felt the same. We have taken our marriage vows seriously, and have looked towards my parents who are in their 46 year of marriage, for advice.  So, yes, we are the couple that has “date night”, yes, we are ones that often switch off our phones, and sit for hours playing scrabble whilst discussing our hopes, dreams and our struggles. Tonight is one of those nights, I have made Toad in the Hole, and Chocolate Souffle for pudding, the table is laid, there are candles lit all around the dinning room, and I have laid scrabble out in the living room. Tonight, is about Neal and I. You see, I love him, I really love him. I am not that great at telling him, I struggle to show him, but I love him.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
