When we were dating, every Monday morning Aaron would fly to Boston for work.  It was horrible, I would have to take him to the airport SO early and then he would be gone until Thursday night (I really began to love me some Thursday nights).
Anyway, like every other Monday morning I took him to the airport. I got out of the car to give him a hug and a kiss goodbye and to give him his weekly 'love note' from me.  As he started to walk away I said, 'I'll see you on Thursday, I love you!'.  I couldn't believe the words had come out of my mouth so soon.  I was totally embarrassed.  But, at airports, that is what you do- you say goodbye, and I love you!  Anyway, to cover up, I paused for a moment and we both kind of looked at each other and I said, 'um...like a brother'.  Then got in the car. When he got to Boston that morning, he sent me a text message that said 'like a brother?'.  Probably one of my favorite moments of all time (though totally mortifying when it happened).
I adore that there is one man that I have said, 'I love you' to.  Just one. And that is the father of my children and the man I married.  I love him so much more than I did that day, even more than I did yesterday and I hope to love him better tomorrow.  And I DEFINITELY don't love him like a brother.  Curiosity?  When was the first time you told your spouse or significant other that you loved them?  Comment below or post about it~


  1. ChildREN??? That right there is damn near an announcement in my family. That and abstaining from wine...

  2. Zeb and I were just 'friends' (we hung out with the same group of friends, several times a week every week), and we took a trip to Little Rock from Fayetteville for a rugby tourney (we both played).
    We ended up kissing the night before the tournament, and after we played the next day and went out with our friends, I ended up telling him. I was shocked it came out of my mouth, too!
    We only dated 3 months before we got engaged, so I guess everything was a whirlwind with us :)
    Going on 10 years of marriage and 12 years of dating - turns out I really knew what I was talking about!
