This one is for the ladies, in particular the married ones who read here. I don’t normally talk about relationship stuff on here, and its kind of a policy. This is our farm blog. But family and relationships are part of what makes this us, so I wanted to share something with you.
I was looking through our wedding photos tonight, and I notice something I never really saw before. I look at my husband like this–A LOT.
That first one was snapped during a staging moment for another photo where the groomsmen would be “handing me over” to Scott. But he lifted me up and put me in their arms like I was a rag doll. Here I am doing it again:
I can’t help it. And most of the time I do it when I think he wont notice, because I feel silly. Notice how in both photos he is not looking back at me.
And it has lasted. Here I am again, 12 years later looking like a high schooler infatuated with my new boyfriend:
I am not sure why. But this look says “you are leading. I am just waiting to see what crazy thing you have planned for us next.”
And I think you can cultivate it in yourself if you aren’t already like this. Next time your husband walks in the door, give him the doe eyes. If you let yourself do it, I think you will feel like you did back when he first caught your attention. There is no need to withhold this.
