MY ROCK AND A HARD PLACE
I couldn’t sleep last night. In addition to everything else, my husband and I are business partners. We had a fight about creative and social media. I spent half of the night staring at him and thinking to myself…marriage is a funny thing.
To some the idea of committing yourself to one person for the rest of your life seems unnatural. They would argue that we aren’t the same person at 24 that we are at 84. They would say that it is impossible to believe that you should not be expected to personally evolve ungoverned by someone else’s thoughts.
To others the concept of marriage is comforting. They would argue that it is life’s great gift to have someone who loves you unequivocally through life’s highs, lows, laughs and tears. That you don’t govern each other, you compliment and support each other through the changes.
My husband and I have what most would consider a successful, happy marriage. We are the couple that host great dinner parties, have a beautiful daughter, a cozy, warm house and tons of friends and family.
We have a company that we are proud of and work tirelessly everyday to make it grow. We are building a brand that we hope will be a legacy to our greatest co-production, our beloved Chloe Rose. We laugh, we kiss, we toast, we fight, I win, we move on. God knows we have seen the worst and scariest life has to offer and only survived it because we had each other.
As I watch him sleeping I think to myself – He’s a great man. He’s a fantastic Daddy, an insanely creative designer, a sharp business partner, a fun brother, loyal friend, loving son and, I admit it, my rock. I roll over, kiss his forehead and take off his eyeglasses. I don’t tell him, but he is silently forgiven.
I walk to the bathroom in the dark hoping if I pee again I will finally fall asleep. My tush and the ice-cold toilet water become fast friends. My rock left the seat up again. And I think to myself….what a wonderful life =)
