5 Years - Why We Work

Today makes 5 years that Matt & I have been in each other's lives.  I had no clue then that He would end up being the man of my dreams.  The one who I laugh with, cry with, can't get enough of & always want to be with.  I'm crazy in love with this guy & can't believe I now get to call him my husband!?!?!  In honor of being together for 5 years today, here's 5 reason of why we work.

One - We both truly love live music & dancing.  Before I met Matt I was always out with my girlfriends going from concert to concert.  I knew that whoever I settled down with would have to enjoy life music as much as I did.  Ding! Ding!  Even though now being an grown adult, home owner & just plain getting older doesn't allow for to go see concerts & dance as much as we used to, we still enjoy it just as much.  Maybe even more since we don't get to as often.

Two - Our inside jokes & that we're extremely comfortable together.  I used to think we weren't very funny people... and maybe we're not to other & that's ok.  However, I tend to think that we are fun & that we have a lot of fun together.  We have inside jokes & dance parties... I dance, Matt more just stands there & laughs but, you know I mean.  On top of that, we're extremely comfortable with each other.  We talk about anything & everything under the sun, moon & stars.  Some might think we share too much with each other but, hey! there's potential that we're going to be wiping each others rears one day... How could it get any more personal!?  #weknowwe'reweird

Three - Matt never tells me "no".  Ok, maybe he does sometimes but, I can't really think of a time where He's told me "no" & I ended up being miserable or sooo upset over it.  I asked Matt one time why He never tells me "no" & his response... "Because I just want you to be happy".  Umm... melt ma heart!!  It's true though & it goes both ways.  I always want to see him happy & make him happy.  We want and do things for each other because we know it's what the other wants.  I get true joy out of seeing this man happy.  It does't take much to make him happy but, that's also what I love about him too - he's simple.

Four - = Food.  Particularly Mexican food.  We enjoy it all way too much!  Home cooked meal or in a restaurant... we'll even do fast food or a food truck.  We love it all!!

Five - Because I like to ride our his motorcycle.  Matt told me verrrry early on in our relationship that He was glad I liked to ride the motorcycle because if I didn't, He didn't think we would work out.  Whew!  Glad I passed that one!  ;)  I hopped on the back of his motorcycle after knowing him less than 24 hours... smart I know.  But, I trusted him... thank goodness... and I fell in love with riding!  We've been to a handful of bike rally's now, taken off work early on beautiful days just to end up riding about 150 miles in one afternoon, it's been our 2nd vehicle when I was in between cars, & most of all it's been something that we can do together.  Just the two of us or with all of our friends & I wouldn't trade it for the world.  I know when kids come along it will be harder to find time to ride but, I hope it's never not an option.
