Why We Work

In honor of Valentine's Day (and my "friends" Bonnie and Taylor, both of whom I have been stalking for months), I thought I would join my first ever link up! The topic is "Why We Work." Taylor actually did this a few weeks ago. Or possibly a few months ago - I really have no sense of time. In any case, I thought it was really cute and instantly wanted to copy her and now I have an excuse to.

At my sister's wedding this past summer.
We work because even though 9 times out of 10 I am the most awkward person on the planet, Layne loves me anyway and rarely makes fun of me for being such a weirdy. And when he does make fun of me, he does this little laugh that is almost a giggle that always makes my face split into a grin and I can't even care about how lame I am. We work because he always notices when I make an extra effort to look pretty. We work because he is the funniest man on the face of the planet, and I love to laugh. We work because we fundamentally agree on almost everything, and when we don't, we are both passionate people who fight like we really mean it. And then as the fight subsides, we both rush to be the first to say sorry and restore our usual balance of goofiness and quiet contentment. We work because he encourages me to paint and craft and write and do what makes me happy, and I push him towards his dreams every chance I get.

We work because at the end of every day, when my stomach is fluttering with butterflies and my heart is pounding with how much I love the guy sitting next to me on the couch, he lets me sink into his arms and while away the world.

Join the link up!


  1. very cute :) and we are in the same boat as far as awkwardness!

    1. Isn't being awkward the best? It just means you found someone you be your true self with!

  2. Dropping by from the linkup... This is very sweet! Ya'll seem like a perfect match! Enjoy your day tomorrow.
