pssst..

Every once and a while David and I have miscommunications… Last night at about 3am I hear him whisper “Bethany…..” I moaned back, and he said “I’m not mad at you.” I figured that he was half asleep and this had something to do with what he was dreaming about. I kind of laughed and replied “I’m not mad at you either.” I started to fall back to sleep and about 2 minutes later he whispers “Do you want to talk about it?” Confused I woke up again and said “Wait… What are you talking about?”. He had fallen asleep upset about a comment that I had made earlier that night. When I had noooo idea that I had said anything offensive, and I just thought he was exhausted from his work day and didn’t realize he was actually annoyed with me. We have a rule that we never fall asleep angry, so this had been really bothering David throughout the night, while I was completely oblivious. 
When we woke up in the morning we replayed the scenario in our heads and laughed pretty hard about “Sitcom” like series of events.
But every once in a while we just have “off” nights, and we need to kind of redeem them. So today I bought a bottle of wine, a loaf of sourdough, a jar of olive tapenade, and were going to watch Place Beyond the Pines. That may sound silly, but there are few things that David and I enjoy more than a night with gooood snacks, candles, wine (only drinken by him right now obviously), and a rented movie. It’s nice to find the little things that mean a lot to you. 

P.S. I know how relationships can seem so perfect from the outside when you only know someone through their blog or instagram, I know that I definitely think that of other couples! But just so you know, incase it may have crossed your mind here is a reminder that everybody is just human, as great as things can seem through pictures.

    Thank you for sharing your heart in and honest and tactful way. Real marriages come with real arguments (most of which are from lack of communication for us too.) We usually do home made popcorn, but wine and bread sound freaking amazing.

    In our house, we don't go to sleep angry either. Even if we try, it still doesn't often work. We just lay there in silence, grumping until one of us usually 'mans' up and says something.
    Thanks for sharing!
