Think about how you felt about each other when you first met. In difficult times, remember that feeling. Remember the excitement, the waiting by the phone, the anticipation of seeing one another again. Remember that that is the same person you’re upset with, the same person who you feel has let you down. Remember why you fell in love. Remember why that love is worth nurturing and fighting for and keeping alive. Remember who you were when you fell in love, and find a way to be that person again even in times of hardship. Because you’re still that person, too.This is what she wrote to her future sister-in-law at her shower. Guests were asked to leave marital advice& I think this is just awesome. It seriously made me smile. I think because I can see how simple it is to do& how effective it would be in the moment. I am 99% sure I'm not going to be married anytime in the near future but I think this really applies to anybody in a relationship. So to everybody reading this who's in a relationship, remember it!

And HalfPastWonderful. Thanks, doc!Dear boyfriend, if you're reading this? Remember it ..especially when I'm being difficult. Just think of how much you loved me before you knew I photoshopped your head onto a trout! Or, you know, when I do something else equally weird. Just think of what you thought of me that time we climbed the mountain ..because that was so much better*.
*Someday soon, I will blog about this story for you guys to laugh about. For now, only the boyfriend is laughing over the mint.
