From the Drafts: Dollar.

One of the things on my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days is to clean up my blog’s Drafts folder. Sometimes I write blogs and never go back to putting pictures in them or actually hitting “publish” so you might see them sneaking in ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ve been holding hands for 669 days now and even each wear rings on them. Somehow the dollar joke wore off, but I’m going to be bringing it back because it was sweet. ๐Ÿ™‚

Update: still loving every day I get to spend with Justen Martian.

So far we’ve spent 210 (8/15) days of this year holding each other’s hand, and it’s great.


Sometimes, y’all. Sometimes he reaches for my hand at the most AWKWARD and inconvenient times. Like I’ll be holding my phone in my hand, and he’ll reach to grab my hand. or when my hand is in my pocket. I decided that it was becoming such an issue that he needed to pay me a dollar every time he awkwardly reached for my hand.

Often, we will be going about our day, strolling around Target or walking to a coffee shop or something like that. and my hand will be in my purse, feeling around for gum, and he’ll attempt to grab that hand.

and I’ll simply say “dollar.”

When I’m cold, I keep my hands tucked inside of my jacket sleeves. and he tries to hold my hand.


When I’m scratching my leg.


Right as I’m about to get up.


He doesn’t actually pay me a dollar, but it’s still fun. Plus he buys me coffee and dinner and puts up with me so he owes me literally nothing.

Do y’all have any cute little quirks about your relationship?
