Always insecure?

Angela and I were driving around listening to Billy Joel the other day and we heard the lyrics, "When you love someone, you're always insecure". We both looked at each other and started talking about it. We are not insecure at all... We know we have each other, we trust one another, and we don't feel like we need to walk on egg shells for approval.  Just by being ourselves, we become closer every day.

Everyone I dated before Angela had an idea in their heads of what a perfect relationship should be, and when I didn't fit that mold they would rather me change than accept me. For example, I dated a girl that got really weird when I wanted to learn to do her makeup or curl her hair so I stopped asking. I went along with what made her comfortable because I thought compromise was the most important thing in a relationship. With Angela, she not only accepts things that make me a little weird in others eyes, but loves me even more for it. We have fun picking out makeup and she loves the attention of me brushing or braiding her hair.  I feel like she really loves me for who I am and I love her for who she is. I'm so glad we are not insecure, it leaves more energy for things like playing. :)

One thing my wife and I love to do is drive around. It's relaxing and freeing to just be on the open road. Sometimes we'll just keep driving until we run out of gas. There's something kind of romantic about not knowing where you're going. You don't always have to plan what you're doing. When we hear about something fun to do that's more than an hour away it makes us all the more eager to go. This being said, I can't believe neither of us have ever been to Medieval Times. With having opportunities since we were young, even as school field trips, what has stopped us? Well I'm a hopeless romantic... so I choose to believe that it was fate that we could share our first Medieval Times experience together.

We had fun eating with our hands and watching the show. They had a gluten free option for Angela that I made sure to order before we got there. Upon arrival, we checked in and were given cool paper crowns. I'm more about the people than the activity and the company was first rate (Angela). I don't pretend to know the formula for the perfect relationship, but I do know that she is perfect for me and when I am with her, every day is an adventure. She lets me be myself, and if home is where the heart is, she is my home.
