I want one of those marriages where they’ve been married 20 years but are still crazy in love and still cuddle on the couch and kiss a lot. I want those kind of marriages that make my kids nauseous because how in love their parents are.
My parents have been married 32 years and still leave love notes on the counter for each other. My dad gets up early for work so he leaves coffee on her nightstand every morning because she likes to sketch when she wakes up without getting out of bed.
My parents met at a bar in Chicago, and when the building got old and needed to be torn down my dad went back there and asked them if he could have the old metal ceiling fan that was hanging above the counter they first talked at, and it hangs in our basement to this day.
When I was 1 yr old they cleared a couple acres of woods to build a house, and with all their hard-working hippie friends, they built a beautiful timber frame. Scattered throughout the inner-workings and bones of the house are little hidden notes, PS & AF, scribbled with sharpie or pressed into the concrete before the house was finished.
I have the most in-love parents of anyone I know, and I would be lucky to even come close to finding a soulmate someday the way they both have.
