The time wheel goes round and round and here we are again another Valentine’s Day. Look, I can only buy so many chainsaws and man gifts, but after all these years of them I’m running out of ideas. What was that you said, put on some sexy lingerie, do a little dance, be sexy, and “one second Brody or Reece, Mommy is having a grown up talk with Daddy”? I already schedule my sex life, so doing a sexcapade or sexy TV might be a stretch. Not to mention if I broke out that move, Laird might roll over with a belly laugh and be unable to perform. Visual; I put on the 3 inch heels, and hey honey here comes your 6’6″ inch wife looking to get lucky. Growl, or do you wanna play a game of one on one?
Anyway, getting serious about celebrating love. I think love is serious, but it’s an everyday, long haul kind of serious. Not put it in a box with a bow or “hooker get” up serious. Love is about all the little things, the understanding, the listening, supporting your partner to be whoever they are, celebrating their victories, offering forgiveness, tolerance, deafness (right boys), and so on. Someone told me once that if your partner decided at a party to dance on the table that you should grab a spoon and play the glasses for them. I am grateful for finding the passionate and growing love I have for Laird. Part of it is he tends to the fire daily, and is truly a great partner. Not perfect, since by the way that does not exist, but a partner that doesn’t just show up, but is committed.
For my singles out there I’m going to give you some love advice from my husband. Ready? Laird is a surfer (that’s a slight understatement) and we talk a lot about going for it in life, what am I holding back for, how short life is, blah blah blah. Laird in his getting down to the essence way said “one thing for sure is you can’t make the wave if you don’t go”! Translation: you have to TRY to even have a shot of getting the ride. Now maybe you will wipe out, or get exploded on, but maybe you will have the time of your life! Ahhhhhhhhhh, so wise with those surf shorts on. So don’t wait for the perfect set up to catch the perfect wave, to make sure you’ll make it. How about try go (as they say in Hawaii)? Hell yes it’s scary, but what are we doing here?
Ok, Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone, and make sure you let the people in your life how much you truly cherish and APPRECIATE them. Remember make sure to take care of your house because someone else would be glad too.
