On cozy nights, in our comfies, is my favorite time with Mr P. After we have tucked our kids up tight in their beds, and long before our own bedtime we sit together on our couch with our legs intertwined. It’s these ordinary moments of cuddles and catching up with each other’s day that I cherish the most. The simple contact of our legs together relaxing and sharing everything with my best friend makes me so very grateful for the lovely life I have, for the lovely husband I have.
We may bicker or tease or even fight from time to time, that’s natural in a relationship but we are always a team in everything we do. We share the parenting both equally, we share the getting ups, and putting to bed times too. I couldn’t have asked for a better father to my children. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. It is hard to find that person that both understands you completely and has the same values and wants out of life as you do. I never thought I would find that. We both may be stubborn and competitive but I think that only makes us a stronger unit because both of these traits are fuelled by passion, something we both have so much of.
September has been a hectic month. We have found that our return from America and Mr P’s return from his golfing trip, we haven’t seen each other as much as we would like in July/August. We vowed September would be different and slower but we couldn’t have been more wrong.
September saw me at the MAD Blog Awards the weekend after Mr P return then there have been last minute great opportunities of concerts, baby shows and close friends’ birthdays that we just couldn’t pass up. As September comes to a close, we are looking forward to truly having Mr & Mrs time again. A slower pace of life is needed and I am actually looking forward to it.
But that doesn’t stop us from having a ton of fun in the bustle and rush of life when we are super busy. We still find the time to be silly and make memories. We both can be quite the big kids when we want to be probably to our children’s dismay already.
We are still learning even after seven years together, each other’s corky sense of humors. USA sense of humor vs UK sense of humor is in fact COMPLETELY different. It’s been something we have bickered about, laughed about and even sat completely puzzle on what the other is even going on about. For the most part, the confusion just makes it that much more funny.

Our ordinary moments of leg cuddling, photo booth silliness and Mr P’s love to cheat on me with the wicker lady at our local park are all what builds our relationship stronger! You have to enjoy the little things in life or they will pass you by! We both try our hardest not to get too wrapped up in the routines of life to not stop and take notice of each other, compliment each other, show love to each other.
A little ordinary moment can spark a flame that can fuel a fire and keep a relationship burning.
