- I realized that sometimes Paul knows me better than I know myself. For instance, the question was simply, “What is your favorite movie?” Easy one. My husband loves The Godfather. For myself, I was thinking Mom’s Night Out. I love that movie - I laugh hysterically every time and still tear up at the wisdom of biker and tattoo artist, Bones. My husband, however, said “Lilies of the Field.” How could I forget Lilies – a classic, my all-time favorite movie and actor. My husband knows me so well.
- There are some stories about my husband that I had not heard yet, and there were some stories about me that I had not told him. We learned something new about each other.
- Mostly, though, we knew the answers. What a good feeling it is to know that my husband and I do communicate, connect, and listen to each other. Even if we knew the answers, it was still fun to go through them and talk about … us!
