Have you ever noticed that some couples look like they were meant to be together? They pair up like peas & carrots. Peanut butter & jelly. Pizza & beer. They just...make...sense!
Must be nice.
I've always felt like more of an oddball myself. Left wondering if there even IS a beer to my pizza! I mean after all I often find that I'm the Tigger in a sea of Eyores. And then there's my better half, Logan. He always says he's "an analog guy in a digital world." How in the world did this introspective, artistic, handwritten love letter guy fall for a social media chatter box who loves technology & rarely puts down her phone?! I guess that is just the miracle of LOVE!
But it turns out we're not alone! I recently received a note from someone who's been following our P'Cozy journey that made me smile. Because not only did the seemingly different interests of this couple reflect our own...but the requestor CLEARLY gets what P'cozies are all about...healthy dialogue about the sometimes uncomfortable topic of sex & sexuality.
I knew my mom would be up for the challenge...so I forwarded the following note:
Hi Leslie - I love this story - you are both cracking me up & eliciting a "yes!"... part of my own journey has been breaking through that wall of silence/shame & finding a healthy relationship with my own sexuality.
So... I'd love to order a set, don't know if that's possible... what would your creative minds cook up for a software engineer/agile coach (me) and a dancer (my wife) ?
All the best and keep up the good work!!!!
And of course...mom was up for the challenge. A few days after forwarding the message, I got pictures of the pizza + beer set AND these little gems...along with this note:
Computer + ballet shoes?? Thoughts?
You could put up two at a time and write something about some relationships are opposite while others are made to see things the same...and they ALL can work!
I swear...give the woman just about anything & she can create it in yarn...along with words of wisdom & a dash of inspiration! Suddenly I feel like my social media self & my analog fiancé are PERFECT just the way we are! And he doesn't seem to have any problems with our communication either...
Crocheted communication. That's what this is all about, really. And laughs. Lots of laughs. The key to a healthy relationship, and sex life, is communication. No matter how opposite you may seem. Even if you're into computers and your significant other is a dancer. Hey, different motions same ocean. Right? Right. So why not open the lines of communication? Plug in your hard drive and start that two-step.
Can ya see why I love this man?! Honey, get your hard drive ready... ;-)
Special thanks to the kindred spirit who sent this message & got our creative wheels turning! I hope you & your dancing wife have as much fun playing with these as we had creating & writing about them!
The Who's Who of Happyville
We're more like a cast of characters than actual grown-ups. We laugh a lot & have ridiculous conversations about crocheted covers for your naughty bits. Did I mention "we" is myself, my fiancé & my MOM?! For real. You can't make this stuff up. But we can share what our weird little minds do when we're not being productive members of society (although if you ask me...this project has been QUITE productive!).
First time bride at 41. I had 2 cats & my mom was one of my besties before I had a man. It was 4 decades...that doesn't just stop on a dime, ya know.
Artist at heart. Moved from NYC to Vegas for love. Found the woman of my dreams... and her crazy mom.
I got this...
