i woke up feeling a little off this morning
Nick and I had a "discussion" right before bed last night
and we didn't fix it before we went to sleep.
one of the pieces of advice i got over and over
before we got married, was..
to never let the sun go down on your anger
sounds nice in theory
but sometimes being tired can make an argument seem bigger than it really is, amiright?
and for us, sometimes the thought of hashing it out
into the wee hours of the morning
means that we pay dire consequences at the hospital the next day
this isn't an excuse, but it is a reality of our jobs
so we let this one go
and when Nick left for work this morning,
(i was still sleeping, because i'm off today thankGOD)
i forgot to tell him i love you
for some reason,
all this got me thinking about the night before our wedding
we weren't fighting then
it was actually one of the happiest nights of my life
we had a big family dinner
at a little restaurant in Gattaiola
(a village near Lucca, Italy)
side note: i have huge regrets about my unfortunate hair situation that night
wth was going on there?
|precious baby bro. who is now 16. i want to freeze him like that forever.|
|my sisters: mini-me (L) and lil' diva (R).|
|my mom loves us.|
|the godfather, Nick's dad, and Todd (Nick's bestie). barrel o' laughs those three.|
i know this doesn't have anything to do with the aforementioned fight
but for some reason this morning i was reminded of it and thought i'd share.
how about you?
are you a big believer in not going to bed angry?
i'm starting to think there's something to be said
for spending a few long hours out-of-sorts
...letting things cool off...
giving the fight a chance to get smaller
i know Nick and I will be fine tonight when he gets home
i have faith that we're in this forever
and the reunion will be so sweet
p.s. one of my favorite songs. ever.
it's fitting, no?
