I stand by overnight
You romance with chandeliers
And I use candlelight
Oh, there's one thing I got more
Where I'm rich, you're poor
It's that real good loving
The kind you can't afford
We have taken three trips round the sun since our wedding. In that time, my husband has taught me to appreciate many things, like sweatpants, sour cream, baseball, Mac computers, The West Wing, hip-hop, and the beach. He has failed, alas, in his campaign to convert me to a football fan. (I am not sure if I have taught him to appreciate anything other than bourbon, but he says I'm the best thing that ever happened to him, which is quite satisfactory.)
This is going to be an exciting year. New house, newborn, new adventures all around. I count myself fortunate to have a husband who is both a fearless leader and a tender-hearted helper. Forward march!

Jared and I? Well, we own a 1,280 square foot house. Our living room furniture currently consists of a coffee table. Buying a $25 bottle of wine is a big splurge. My husband won't be taking me to Versailles any time soon, let alone building me a replica.
But we have that real good loving, the kind you can't afford.
