It's the Little Things He Does

Big romantic gestures are not Joe's forte and I sometimes find myself wishing they were. But lately, I really notice the little things he does. He is more practical than romantic, and that is something that I have started to enjoy and appreciate.

Welcome to Married Life

He doesn't send me flowers, but he gets excited when he buys something that we've needed or been saving to buy. I always get a text saying something like, "I bought you something!" and he is legitimately excited to show me what he got.

I know he'll never cook dinner or prepare a romantic meal, but he takes me to my favorite restaurants, and doesn't mind if I don't feel like cooking some days. We have our romantic meals at fun restaurants and I'm ok with that.

When I ask him to plan a fun date night, he usually just ends up asking me what I want to do when we're in the car on our way out for the night. But every once and a while he asks me on a date to spend some quality time cleaning the apartment, doing the dishes, going for a walk or watching our favorite TV show.

Joe is his own kind of romantic and I'm ok with that!
