5th wedding anniversary

Hail the Autmnal Equinox!

Today is my 5th wedding anniversary!
Yippee! Can I brag about my husband? Talk about the nicest most level headed guy. He is definitely keeper quality, and he's mine.
I count myself lucky and hope that any soon to be married Browncoats are as happy as I am!
If I could give any advice, I guess I'd say this.
- Don't sweat the small stuff. If your sweetie hogs the remote or won't get off the computer, so what. Everybody has annoying habits, it's a fact. If you've married someone, don't think that you can change those little nuances, because thats what makes them the wonderful person you chose to be with.
- Little tiffs are a waste of energy. If something is upsetting step back for a few minutes and think about what you want to say. Never lace it with not nice names and past "you did this's ". Try not to raise your voice. ( Verbal abuse is just as bad as physical, and shouldn't be part of anyone's life.)
- There are just somethings that really don't warrant a comment; roll your eyes if it will make you feel better.
If your sweetie has weird or "difficult" relatives, don't make comments about them. See previous comment.
Curious? The weirdness is all on my side. Hubby is so kind as to smile and say nothing.
- Love everyday you have with this person, stuff happens that you can never predict. I almost bit it once, and it really changed my perspective. ( Shoot, just knowing my hubby changed it as well.) You don't have to have a big " oh, how I love my sweetie" moment everyday... well you can if you want. Just give it a second when you wake up and think... here I am and things are good with this person... YEA!
- This part may be more for the guys. Children. I know some fellas may hesitate and say "NOOoooo!" and avoid the topic all together. Just think, more Browncoats. No really, babies/kids aside from being cute, are really pretty cool, fun, and more entertaining than primetime TV. So your life will revolve around them for at least 18 more years( more like 30). It will be worth it. Just wait til they share a soggy Cheeri-O out of their drooly mouth with you. :D Yummy!

Tonight we will partake of tasty enchiladas and sopapillas at El Chico. :D
It's the little things that are fun, y'know.

Good advice!! My co-pilot and I have been together 19 years and I completley agree that you gotta let the small stuff go. Life is just to short to try to micromanage.

Didn't do the baby thing but really enjoy raising our four-legged baby Something besides yourselves to focus on is good.

Congratulations have a wonderful night out!
