with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Sunday night found us sitting in our living room, wine in hand. My husband is a pretty quiet guy for the most part. He tells me he loves me, we kiss hello and goodbye and have frequent “special time.” He encourages me often, whether it is about how he appreciates the work I do, or how he appreciates my body. Ahem.
Sunday was different. He started out with “I LIKE YOU.” I then asked what it was that he liked about me.
He listed everything from being a good Mom to being a good friend to how I was so nice to everyone I encountered and how I cooked good meals and how he appreciated my dedication to fitness and liked to just look at me. While I was a little bashful about his praise it was so very nice to hear, you know?
He likes me! He really, really likes me!
I told him what I liked about him (tight buns aside) and it was nice. To sit with the one I love and talk about what we like about each other.
What do you “like” about your spouse?
