Today is our second Blogiversary
It is hard to believe that it is over two years since we started ttwd. The old saying "Time flies when you are having fun" must be true.
We were chatting the other day about the changes we have made to our marriage and also about our "real life" friends around us.
For us the most obvious thing is we are so happy together. We find ourselves wanting to be around others much less and we simply grab every moment we can together. Funny how we can always find something to do ;), life is never boring.
I want to please him, he tends to spoil me ( oh come on, I am not going to refuse his attention am I?) I am not especially naughty, well only about food :( so much of our spanking is purely fun and games. We both feel that life is supposed to be fun at this stage. We have done the hard bit, if we can't play now when can we? That being said he can and does rein me in a bit now and again if I push things a bit ( only rarely you understand )
I asked him what he thought ttwd has done for us and he straightaway said that we were closer, more focused on each other and more caring and considerate . Also we laugh more than we ever did.
We have been married for almost thirty three years so we can read each other pretty well anyway, somehow now he only has to look at me and I know what he is thinking!!
Sometimes I wish I could spill the beans to my friends. In my job I work with couples and oh so many times I think "for goodness sake spank her!" . I do manage to keep my mouth shut (just). I see friends I have known for years and their relationships quite frankly are poor to say the least. I am not judging really, just saying what I see. They drift along not even particularly happily, almost like two parallel lines that never touch whereas I am grateful to say our lines are intertwined.
I would never interfere but oh gosh I wish I could.
I love reading about everyone in Blogland. Over the last two years there have been some upsets, losing bloggers, making real friendships with others ( Hi Ami), rejoicing in the new babies ( hi Tilda !) , awaiting others with baited breath (yes we are still waiting for Esmay) . I have loved reading all the new books written by blogger pals( thanks DF, Sunny and PK).
I am a much happier girl since embarking on this escapade and I am pretty sure my husband is too.
I think this quote is beautiful:
I hope you all have a great week, John and I are going to think of some way to celebrate our blogiversary !!!
