What Real Love Is...

There is super romantic, cheesy movie love and then there is real love. Give me the real stuff any day of the week. Cos it rocks.

Real love is having a hubby that tells you oh babe you look pretty, when you are sitting in the chair next to him in pyjama pants and a tshirt after you spilled chicken juice down the front of your cute outfit just before he walked in the door from work.

Real love is having a hubby that doesn't mind that you haven't done the dishes and that your kitchen bench is covered in half finished 'projects' that are all being painted various shades of yellow. Including one massive fail.

Real love is having a hubby who goes and gets you a quarter pounder with cheese, fries, sweet and sour sauce and a chocolate shake, because you feel yuck and can't be bothered cooking and just finished cleaning up an entire jar of honey that smashed all over the kitchen floor.

Real love is having a hubby that happily sits next to you every night as you cruise the blogs and show him about a million different projects and ideas you just have to try. And who doesn't get mad that every time he goes to use the laptop you have a heap of different pages already open, and that he has to minimize them before he can use it. And who doesn't mind that your favorites list is full of different blogs, crafting ideas or sewing projects.

Real love is my hubby.

Todd you are my favorite thing about this week, every week, forever.

Em xo

I have a hubby just like that :) I laughed when you mentioned the half finished projects and how he sits next to you every night while youre searching through blogs...are you sure you aren't living in my house?
I love knowing my hubby is there in everything I do (and fail at) and that he has my back no matter what. He melts my heart, and it sounds like your hubs melts yours too!
