Intimacy- (Into Me You See). I was told once that intimacy isn’t just physical… its emotional. And I 1000000% agree with that sentiment. I have been with my husband for 13 years, 12 of those years them we lived together. All that to say that there is still so much about him that I don’t know about and that I would love to learn, despite us living in 208 square feet together. When I say I still have yet to learn, I’m not talking about “what is his favorite color?” I’m talking about small, nuanced things that aren’t important to our everyday life, but are nuggets, events, and stories that make up who he is.
I love to use the car ride as a time for us to get to know each other on level that we don’t get to dive into at home. If you think you know everything there is to know about your partner, you are wrong. Do you know their biggest regret in life? Do you know what elementary school teacher made the most lasting impression on them? Do you know when the last time they cried alone was and what it was about? Do you know about a childhood friendship that left them feeling disappointed? Do you know what the most valuable lesson their father or mother has taught them?
