The Beautiful Mess of Relationships
Relationships take work. They are not perfect regardless of what is perceived through social media.
Despite the bliss of all our excitement for our sweet bundle, mine and Casey’s relationship has been a beautiful mess. It’s our story and I LOVE it, but it’s taken WORK! .
After asking all of you for questions for our pregnancy podcast (found HERE), I received a lot of questions about our relationship and if we have had hard times and how we deal with the ups and downs.
I am madly in love with this man and I pretty much was from the moment I saw him. BUT our journey as a couple was not always something to write home about.
We STRUGGLED! We were working 6 days a week in a setting where it was not professional to have any public display of affection so eventually learning to show each other love was NOT easy. This has taken us a lot of time and honestly was awkward for a while.
Along with that, Casey is not one to be known for communicating where as I can talk for dayssss! 🤷🏼♀️ Our arguments or fights were followed by 4 days of silence. Then we worked down to 2 days, then maybe a few hours, then 45 minutes, to where we now are able to address the issue or concern head on.
We also feared the unknown. We had very serious relationships prior to us dating so the fear of giving our heart to someone again was NOT something either of us were ready for or excited about to be honest.
We are NOT perfect. Our journey has been HARD. But it’s been 6 years of a beautiful mess and a story I wouldn’t trade for anything.
I can only imagine the changes and struggles that will be ahead of us in this next chapter of ours lives. But I’m confident we will continue to be a team and I am realistic that is will NOT be perfect or what I expect! 😂
Appreciate the beautiful hot mess. As a couple we are choosing crazy over easy.
