Love is a Grocery List

“Love begins as a sonnet, but it eventually turns in to a grocery list, Therefore you need someone with whom you can go to the supermarket.”
-Joel Achenbach (via bazima

Our friends frequently tell Jen that we have a good marriage. I agree. Why? Because even at the grocery store, we’re having a good time. Not just that, but even a trip to the DMV is fun when we’re together.

That fun translates to conflict resolution, making decisions and life in general. We get along. We’re in love (going on seven years, even). And all that said, we’re not stupid about it. We know we both have little niggling annoying traits. We ignore them for the most part, laugh about them, and then accept them.

I can’t imagine doing this marriage thing with anyone else… Love you, sweetie.
