Stupid sh*t Bryan and I argue about

– Posted in: dating, featured, relationships

In a survey I’m way too lazy to look up myself, it is reported (allegedly) that most couples fight about finances and temperature control, which I find interesting since Bryan and I have the tendency to bicker the most about really stupid things like what we’re having for dinner.

The sun was shining and I bathed in the golden hour of sunlight—excited for a chance to break free from my workload and enjoy Mother Nature’s gift. I [...]
