When we first got together, it was amazing.
We gave each other our kindest, most patient, fun-loving, and thoughtful selves. We hid notes for each other to find throughout the day. We stayed up until 2 a.m. enamored with knowing everything each other thinks and feels. We sprinkled our bed with flower petals. We snuggled for hours. We made time for dates and special couples getaways, no matter how busy life got.
We overlooked the more challenging qualities and focused on each other’s best and sparkliest qualities.
