BUILD LOVE UP!

4 years ago I got a "wink and a cheesy message" from this guy on MATCH.COM. 

I think he said something like, "I just wanted to let you know I think you're cute" :)

Little did we know that, together, we'd create a home, blend a family, make a baby, and be one another's very best friend. After 4 years of a lot of happy times, a lot of tears, a lot of dreaming and planning for the future, a lot of tough conversations, a lot of consistency and predictability (from him), a LOT of patience (from him, again, because I be cray cray at times ), a lot of kindness, a lot of understanding, a lot of empathy, a lot of flexibility, and a helluvah lot of love... I think we are kinda sorta starting to figure it out. 

You see, people talk so much about some ideal, perfect love that is effortless and easy; a love that you just "fall into". Well, in my opinion, that's just a bunch of bologna and not realistic at all. TRUE love takes a lot of hard work! It's not about falling into it, it's about BUILDING IT UP!
