Thank goodness today is TBT (throwback Thursday)
I’ve had a bit of writers block this past week. I have about 3 blog posts nearly complete but I can not manage to finish them for whatever reason. It happens! In these situations I like to rely on my old posts to inspire me, see how far things have come, or just remind me of how good my life is! So here is an oldie but a goodie 🙂

Reasons I love my husband; PorNOTgraphy
My husband travels for work for a full week once a month, and unfortunately twice this month. When he is away I naturally miss him more than usual, the heart grows fonder as they say. I tend to develop long mental lists of reasons I absolutely adore my husband; lists I often have difficulty remembering when together for long confined periods. To help me have proof of this, for those particularly difficult days, I have decided to begin an actual running list to refer back to, one in which I can share through my written rants.
So for today…because of an article I read earlier reminded me…. I love my husband…. because my husband does not watch pornography. Now I know what you’re thinking, “all guys watch porn! That is just what guys do!” Well… no actually, not ALL guys do. This concept was hard for me to fathom when I first met my husband. I was used to all those, so called, men, that found this viewing natural and something necessary for them to fulfill whatever desire they had in them. I dated all types of guys before meeting him and every single one of them had a fascination with the rated X video section. This may be a topic that most women really don’t care about; after all you have to choose your battles when it comes to relationships. But for me, this particular area is one that would have caused a world war. I believe porn not only causes unrealistic expectations of women but it is also grossly assumed to be a norm in most households. I admit, I am a highly jealous woman, and I am not proud of this fact but when I love, I love with everything I have and I expect the same in return. My husbands reasoning for his lack of porn enthusiasm is that it’s cheating to view these women’s personal physical features when he is devoted to his wife. I love my husband for his views on this! Whether his reasoning has been brought on by how his grandmother raised him or just a personal insight, I admire the man he has turned in to. And I do mindfully use the word MAN, because it takes a real one in order to stand on this side of the fence when our culture is so sex obsessed. I love my husband for thousands of reasons, more of which I discover every day …and today is because of my husbands PorNOTgraphy.
