Reason #4786 why I am still in deep smit with my husband after almost 10 years of marriage:

Me: “Hey, don’t we have that party for your work tonight?”

Him: “Yeah.”

Me: “Are we supposed to bring something to that?”

Him: “Yeah, a dessert.”

Me: “Okay, so what do you think we should make?”

Him: “Well, I didn’t have time to make anything, and I didn’t want you to have to use up any of your writing time, so I thought we’d just get something at the store.”

Me: Swoon.

Of course I made something.  I’m no chef, but desserts are my favorite thing to make (and eat).  But I love that he knows that that brief hour when the kids are napping belongs to writing and that he respects that. He’s the best.  For me, I mean. I’m sure your significant other is the best for you.  Isn’t that great?

    I tell my students all the time that the idea of romance isn’t the bouquet of red roses (although sweet) at the end of a black tie dinner and horse-drawn carriage through the park. It is the realization of what is precious and important, paying attention to it and encouraging it’s progress.

    Way to find the romance.
