Childhood Comforts In Marriage

Well, I just got back from Boston and that’s my home town. That’s where I grew up as a kid.

You had such fun, and you said it was like nothing had changed. It was almost exactly the same.

It was great. And I went back to Brigham’s Ice Cream in my little neighbor where I grew up and I had a cone. You know, a vanilla cone with chocolate jimmies on it.

Which are sprinkles for the rest of us who didn’t grow up in Boston.

You know there is something about going back and finding comfort in those things in your early childhood.

And you know what’s so fun is when you have a spouse, you can bring some of those childhood comforts into your marriage and celebrate your spouse that way.

Absolutely. You grew up in Texas, and I know there are certain things you enjoy about that, but it’s that idea of providing comfort for your spouse that provides comfort for your relationship.
