The other day I was not feeling my best and after spending hours reading back on our experiences of when we first met I couldn’t help but think the honeymoon phase is was over. In that moment I felt like the excitement of our relationship was over, although the feelings were still there of course… It’s just not the same as those butterflies of a *new* relationship.
When Ricardo got home our conversation went like this:
S: Ricardo, is it normal to not be so excited everyday about the relationship?
R: Baaabe, listen. You know a flower, or a plant? Well, in order for it to grow you need to water it right?
S: uhh, yes ?
R: Well, it’s the same with relationships and Love. You need to work on it everyday.
S: Oh my gosh…. are you not the cutest!!!! But, I just feel like the honeymoon is over you know?
R: Yah, you died the honeymoon.
S: I whaaaaaat????? laughing hysterically.
R: You killer the honeymoon.
hahahaha that changed my mood really fast. I adore Ricardo’s English. He has come such a long way but there have been so many times his lack of English has brightened my day or ended an argument. You can’t not help but laugh when he says something incorrectly with his cute Spanish accent. 🙂
