I win. I love you.
That is our daily competition with one another.
- You must be at work when sending the email
- It must say “I love you” and “I win”
- The winner each week gets to determine what we do for date night*
*the sacred date night occurs once per week typically on the same evening and constitutes uninterrupted time spent. No children, no devices, no problems.
It amazes me more now that there is so much physical distance between us how easily I smile when seeing this email in my inbox. Sure, I may have lost the day. But look what I won; the love of the most amazing woman to ever have graced any of our lives.
I win even when losing. Myself, in her.
