My husband knows how to keep it fresh.

Sometimes life just surprises you.  I've been married to my husband for 12 years.  TWELVE. I know not only does that make me old, it puts me past the national average for years married & basically means I am totally boring.  But over the past few weeks my husband has surprised me.


He has always been Mr. FUN.  Never a serious word.  He's either immaturely giddy, or pissed off.  Since he has graduated from college, he actually has done some mature things.  Not a lot, but a few and I'm floored.  He has handled some iffy situations with grace & humility.  He has managed to keep his cool in a sticky situation, and he has even spent time communicating with me like the actual husband I've always dreamed about.  

Is he sick?  Or did he finally grow up?  I'm not sure, but I'm definitely not complaining.

I'm glad that you are both enjoying each other after 12 years--that's an amazing feat in today's society. :) And I'm glad to hear that he is being the "actual husband you've always dreamed about"--that's nice!

Haha, well sometimes boys just gotta be boys.

Also 12 years IS a long time. I've been with J for 5.5 and I KNOW that's longer than some marraiges these days...
