Nathan and I share dominating temperaments and the exact same love language.
We're both the oldest child in our families and thrive in leadership roles.
We love to be with people, but recuperate better by being alone or with family.
We've got dueling, type A personalities, and I read in a book one time that if we were a
celebrity couple we'd look a lot like Bill and Hillary Clinton. Minus all the junk of course.
I would hope so! Vote for us? 2016.
We're literature lovers, pet haters, pizza connoisseurs, music makers, Jesus fans,
firm believers, dialogue gurus, neat freaks, sleep addicts, adventure seekers,
creativity choreographers, big dreamers, emotional souls...
essentially kindred spirits on every level.
Except I love ice-cream and Nathan prefers sorbet. Sorbet? Pa-lease. Skinny people food.
I feel like we break the rule: "opposites attract."
How about you and yours? Similar or obviously opposites?
Regardless of the combination, I think that most couples would agree with me that
"connecting" with your spouse is essential to a thriving relationship.
::: current favorite things to do together :::
learn new songs to harmonize and play with our guitar and djembe
read our respective books and then share all the details with the other
share something warm to drink // the salted caramel apple cider from Starbucks
is one we both can whole-heartedly agree upon!
put the kids in the stroller or on bikes + walk and talk
hash out our latest dreams and newest endeavors
watch old, but favorite, movies
Like I said, whether opposites attract or not, I don't know.
But I DO know that if you PLAN to connect, you'll find that all the opposite or similar
rigmarole will fly out the window. Attraction is attraction! That's the rule.
And that's the way, uh-huh uh-huh, we like it.
