The joy I found in my marriage this week: cute banter :)

We love being silly with each other, just like any other couple! Because it’s fun to tease each other, right? I gotta share a memorable one from this week :)

Whenever I give my husband a piece of gum, he ALWAYS gives me the wrapper, haha. Sometimes it happens when there’s an obvious trash can near by or he has a pocket he can stick it in himself. He just likes to make me deal with it for fun (smile emoji / eyeroll emoji). Well, we were in the car the other day and he hands me his gum wrapper and I gave a silly groan. And his response as he laughed: “Be grateful. Not everyone has a husband who gives them trash.” Needless to say, we had a good laugh over it.

I’m grateful for little moments like this where we can be silly and light-hearted with each other because no one wants their relationship to be serious all the time. Playfulness like that is something we’ve strived for more of lately, and it’s working. :)

Keepin' marriage fresh,


  • This is my favorite kind of stuff!! I had a series on my blog that I shared quarterly some of our little banters that I loved and wanted to remember. I need to start keeping track of them again.

    • Yeah! It’s so important to keep track of them because they start inside jokes for years to come, huh? That’s so smart. I was mad at myself for forgetting some in the past so I’m trying to be better about immediately righting them down and putting it in our joint little journal to remember :)
