Many moons ago I wrote a post entitled “the kind of woman I want to be“. Funny enough it is still one of my favorite posts. I really enjoyed the exercise of putting my visions on paper. It helped solidify things for me. Although I will admit that I still don’t put the cap back on the toothpaste or wear matching undergarments but I’m a work in progress and I like the woman I am becoming more and more every day.
Considering that marriage is on the forefront of my mind (did I mention I am getting married in 87 days?) I thought it might be a good time to write “the kind of wife I want to be” edition. I’ve been thinking a lot about what being a “wife” means. What it means to me more importantly. So here goes…
I want to remember to listen, really listen, when Brian shares his thoughts with me
I want to remember to find his idiosyncrasies endearing instead of annoying
I always want to greet him with a kiss even if I have a million other things going on
I never want to fall asleep angry with him
I want to steal away for date nights once a week
I want to always remember to keep our love of travel and adventure alive…even when we feel bogged down by responsibilities….because there is nobody I prefer traveling with more than Bri.
I want to remember to pick up his favorite mint chip ice cream…just because
I want to admire and appreciate who he is and all that he contributes to our life
I want to remain in awe of his talents
I want to remember to make time for me and my interests throughout our marriage
I want to steal away for date nights and weekend trips with my girlfriends because making time for that is important
I want to create a warm home filled with laughter and love
I want to build a family with him
I want to be the kind of wife that isn’t afraid of the tough moments, days, weeks or years
I want to remember it’s ok to have disagreements because they will only bring us to a more open and honest place
I want to remember how lucky I am to be his wife
I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on what it means to be a “wife” as well as any tips you may want to share with me on marriage! Please comment below!
