top of the mornin’ to you from the united kingdom! we are currently in london and venturing to a few other cities around england through june 18 (i’m over on the instagram sharing behind the scenes and all that jazz).

me: i had a dream you cheated on me. it’s really messing with me.
him: i’m sorry. it was a dream and i would never and will never do that!
me: i know, but i feel like you should still take me out to dinner or something…

freaking out at the kona airport because everything is going wrong
him: wow, you are really handling all of this very well!
me: thank goodness for medication.

while on our baby-free trip to california at a beverly hills spa
me: man, i really wanted to see someone famous here!
him: *without missing a beat* you’re looking at one.
me: *hard eye roll

ravery tearing up giving me hints about a surprise he is planning for me
me: wait. are you tearing up overΒ yourself being so thoughtful!?
him: yeah, kinda.

him: where is that photo of us?
me: um…
him: you know – the one of US!
me: we have literally been together for 10 years. i’m going to need more than that…

me: would you use the word sultry to describe me?
him: sultry?! i didn’t even know that was a word!
me: so…no?

him: babe – hear me out…
me: every time you start a sentence that way, i brace myself and want to take a shot of vodka
him: okay…but hear me out…

your turn – let’s hear what’s been going on in your relationship!

    England is definitely one of my happy places, especially London. Is this a work trip or just a vacation?

    Haha I love the last one – every time you say that I want to brace myself and take a shot of vodka. SO funny.

    Me: I’m feeling grumpy. I don’t know why.
    Him: I’ll grab your butt. That will make you feel better.
    Me: No, that makes you feel better.

    I’m laughing so hard about him tearing up about being so thoughtful. That’s awesome. Also, I can ALWAYS tell when K is coming to me with bad news or a wild request. I get the “So I’ve been thinking, and this is just hypothetical, but…”
    I know to brace myself πŸ˜‰

      hah it’s so funny that we know that repetitive phrase for us to brace ourselves for the wild request! now that i’ve told him it stresses me out, ravery is trying to come up with varied phrases to use

    Hahaha my husband says “hear me out.” all the frickin time and it’s so anxiety inducing, I’m pretty sure he says it now just to see my blood pressure rise. Hope you’re having an awesome time adventuring!
