No matter how long you’ve been with your man, sometimes it’s easy to stop noticing all of the good in them. You may whine over some missing qualities you wish he had or the quirks he does have that drive you crazy. Life gets in the way sometimes. It can cloud your vision of who they really are.

Editor’s Note – This post is a bit more brazen that my usual posts on this blog. If you aren’t in the mood for someone to just tell you straight up how it is (with some occasional sass) then you might want to just skip over this one. Or, now that you’re crazy curious, you can just read it anyway. 

When people find out I am a doctor’s wife there is always a comment.
