Marriage is tough..

I was the sort that made plans.. and planned on not failing.

No room for mistakes or curve balls.. Even if there was a curve ball thrown at me, I would make that curve ball fly straight..lol. Everything (or at least 90%) on my checklist must be checked. Very stressful, I know.. but that’s the purpose of a plan, no?

On the other hand, Blueberry is my complete opposite. He lives life with minimal planning and goes with the flow (or curves with the ball).. He calls it expectation management, I call it- a disaster.

Our differences drove us mad. We fought.. We made up. Then we fought some more.

Eventually, we got tired of the fighting.. We decided to compromise; find a common ground where we could both work on.

He agreed on better planning and checklists.. and I agreed to detour and curve with the ball, when the need arises.

Ever since, things have become better.

Falling in love is easy.

Staying in love requires courage, communication, care, compromise.. and the list goes on. Goodness, marriage is tough!

When the efforts result in love and harmony, everything sown in is worth it.

HBVD…

My birthday is 3 days short from Valentine’s Day.

This year, Blueberry and I had a combined celebration on 14-Feb.. HBVD!

We went to Sanpoutei for ramen, then to Sunday Folks for desserts..

Our evening was simple and nice.. It felt refreshing and meaningful to try different things.

Thank you for the lovely evening, Blueberry!

I ❤ you. 🙂

Together

Together.

.. is the best place to be. 🙂

No matter where we go, home is closer when we are together.

I love you, Blueberry. Thank you for taking good care of me.. I’m a better person, because of your love. 🙂

My treasure

There are some items I hold dearly in my heart.

In times of challenges and hardships, they are my reminder of the love and commitment Blueberry and I have for each other.

My engagement ring and wedding band, held by a sprig of eustoma.. resting on my late mother-in-law's antique dish.

Through life storms of life, we will walk together.

After the rain, rainbows do appear... Blueberry bought me these earrings to celebrate an important milestone of our life.

For sentimental reasons, I will keep them till the end of time.

That One Person

 

To that one person

“If you could have a guarantee that one, specific person was reading your blog, who would you want that person to be? Why? What do you want to say to them?”

I struggled to think of a name at first..

I think it would be my Mother.

..we don’t have a fantastic relationship..

Perhaps, the remedy would be for us to understand each other better..

Maybe she could start a blog too… I will follow her and vice versa…

Maybe it might help our relationship… maybe it might worsen.. I’m not sure.

I guess it’s only wishful thinking and it’ll never happen.

My mother and I will never have a healthy, normal relationship.
