Well, I can't find the little picture thingy, and I've been WAY in the slackage department when it comes to my Friday MHR posts (umm... more like blogging in general, eh?!) but I definitely wanted to post something today for him.

My McStudly is pretty awesome. And although we've been married for almost 2 years, now (holy cow, already??) and we've learned a lot, we still have SOOO so much more to learn! About each other, marriage in general, our friendship, our love languages (which seem to be ever changing), our passions, and our skills and giftings.
We've been trying to be better about vulnerability with each other, lately, but like I said - we're still learning. Still reminding ourselves that we're a team and we've got each others backs and we don't have to worry about how the other is going to respond or react.
Marriage is like a tag-team wrestling event. I'm not typically a fan, but this is a good metaphor (and I don't remember where I read that - so if I accidentally stole it from a blog, somewhere, PLEASE forgive me and feel free to site yourself in the comments)... it's like you have to have each others back in everything. You may not agree with your spouse's actions, but you work that out later, not in the moment. Know what I mean?
Like when you storm home from work all tiffed about something or other and you just want to vent about that moron at work? You don't want advice or help, most of the time, you just want them to agree with you and back you! Later on you'll be pretty open to advice of some sort in the situation, but not while it's fresh, right?? Am I the ONLY one that's like that?
Because you're a team! And if McStudly doesn't have my back, who will? Who can I count on?
Anywho - that's a lot of what we've been learning, lately, along with being vulnerable with each other and not feeling embarrassed about things. I mean - you are together for life. If you're too embarrassed in front of them, you have a LOONNG ways to go!
So basically, though it's not always the easiest to admit, my McStudly is really awesome and I love him beyond measure. I couldn't have asked for a better match.
I love you, baby, and I look forward to learning more about you!
