You wanna know why Graham and I work?
We work because he's encouraging. He pushes me to succeed in everything I do, whether it's work or exercise or ping pong. We work because he's calculated and I can be a bit irrational. It makes life interesting and balanced. We work because we both love plain cheese pizza and chocolate sprinkle donuts. We work because I happily watch soccer with him as long as he let's me pick where we eat for lunch. We work because we appreciate the finer things in life like lazy Sundays, wine, and New Girl together. We work because he makes me tell him what's wrong, especially when I don't want to say it. He can read my emotions like the back of my hand, and while I hate that, I also find it endearing that he cares so much. We work because he puts up with my constant need to chat about nothing. We work because he treats me like a princess and still takes me on dates. We work because he's a much better cook than me, and sometimes a girl needs a perfectly grilled steak. We work because we make each other leave our comfort zones to make the other happy. It has made us both much better people.
I don't care that he teases me every minute of the day and forces me to fall asleep with the TV on and he doesn't care that I leave my shit everywhere (yes he does) or that I cannot control myself around sweets. I love that he is so smart and ambitious and he loves that I'm kind and easy-going. Graham has made my life exponentially better. I can't wait to see what our days have in store.
My heart is so full.
