while he is gone.

Back from visiting the family for the first time! Tomorrow I'll give you a full run down on meeting the family, making friends with at least five puppies and a gaggle of kiddos. But, at this moment, Gabriel has left me at home to run out to the post office before the end of the business day...so I'm just rockin' a quick post.

These thirty minutes are the longest we've been apart for the past two weeks. There's a lot of romantic debriefing that can happen in thirty minutes....this I've realized.

For example: At a young age, I decided that I wouldn't live with anyone before getting married. And I've kept that commitment...and want to continue to keep that promise, both for myself and for whomever I marry. But, there's something to be said for spending a few weeks together, vacation style, fairly uninterrupted. Learning each other's quirks. Discovering how you work as a unit. Uncovering each others flaws. Apparently I leave the bathroom floor a swamp after a shower. (Admittedly true.) He leaves his socks on the living room floor at the end of the night. (True, but he might not admit it.) And yet, we balance nicely.

And, I've learned this: Every morning, he lays his clothes out on the bed. Socks, pants, shirt. Everything.

It's pretty cute. :)


  1. Oh, I wish I possessed the organization/talent/commitment of laying out my clothes the night before. I can do it for my little girls, but not myself. This habit of your guy's is admirable and obviously lovable. Bethany, you've got quite a catch!

  2. Hahah I love this post! So cute :)


  3. PRETTY CUTE, indeed!

    i admire your views on not living together before marriage... there's something about traditional (or in these days non-traditional) that i find extra swoon-worthy.

    like this post about him leaving his clothes out. LOVE IT! and i can't wait to hear all about the meeting! :)

  4. Lol one of my fave things when I got married was finding out the quirks. It was great to learn them together :)

  5. Oh that is so cute and the sign of an organised man! An organised man is a great thing too.

    Can't wait to hear how you got on with everyone too!

  6. Cute Award goes to your Gabriel!

    P.S. How much are you missing him right now?!


Every time you comment, a unicorn gets his wings. Also, my phone beeps and your words bring me joy. :)
