I promise to work with you to cultivate a culture of love, faith, and silliness in our home.
You want to know the secret? Give more than you take. More to the point, give more than you take and be genuinely damn happy about it. Think about it. If we all did this—this whole being sincere and positive and charitable thing—the world would be a far, far better place.
If you don’t rediscover love on a daily basis, you are missing out.
The other day I was reading an article about marriage proposals and what should be true of your relationship if you’re going to accept one. Do you make each other better? Do you have fun together? Do you fight fair? Do you agree with one another’s views on religion, intimacy, finances, children, and so on? Are you still happy when you are apart? Do you know who you are as a person? Sitting in this home we have built together, thinking about our lives as individuals and as a couple, trying to find the perfect wording for the promises that will shape our lives when said in front of God and our loved ones, it is only getting harder to wait to be Mrs. Ryan Adam McCue.
