laughter {in marriage} is the best medicine

i agree with this quote whole-heartedly. 
and if someone can make me laugh, like really laugh, i automatically think of them as my new best friend. 

this week i realized how even more important laughing is in a relationship. 
some of the times that i feel closest to Adam is not when i'm crying & he's trying to comfort me 
{which actually sometimes turns into a disaster cause the poor guy.... i'm make it hard for him, ha}
but are the times where we are both laughing really ridiculously hard together. 

i feel freer, 
i feel more like myself, 
i feel silly & crazy & totally in love

after stressful days or even after frustrating disagreements, 
if we can get a really good laugh in then everything feels right in the world
[even though the next day still ends up being crazy... it's alright for at least a few hours :)] 


make sure you laugh hard with your husband! 
let him in on inside jokes, 
be goofy, 
have a sense of humor with each other's quirks {and flaws}, 
just have fun

i'm so grateful that i'm married to a guy that knows how to make me laugh. 
and laughs along with me over stupid, silly stuff. 
because really it just makes anything hard in life a little easier 
and gives hope when you feel hope is lost.

I completely agree! Some of my favorite moments with my husband are the silliest things that we laugh over.

This is so so so true!! I'm so lucky I married a guy who can make me laugh when I don't even feel like smiling!

Thank you for posting this today - definitely needed reminding as I am feeling super duper stressed!

I couldn't agree more! At the top of my list for qualities I was looking for in a husband was " makes me laugh." I don't think I realized how important it was at the time, but I really think laughing together and being silly is one of the best things you can do for your relationship. Love this!

I agree 100%. whats the point of this life if you're not laughing and having fun, especially if you're going to be with your husband for eternity!

So true, one of my husbands traits I love is him making me laugh. When you can make each other smile and laugh it's a great thing!!

I l-o-v-e the picture of you guys laughing. And I like this post. Sometimes it's easy to date guys who are just "nice guys" but the relationship totally lacks that X factor....the ease of best friendship and random laughter and giggling during church when you probably shouldn't. It's easy to start feeling like maybe that's not so important, but then I always meet a guy who DOES make me laugh like that and I'm like OH YES, THIS.
