It's the Little Things- Toothbrush Tradition

As I came home last night from a wonderful evening with some sweet friends- both old and new- I was greeted by this sight on the bathroom counter that always makes me smile.



Since the day we were married over 7 years ago, Tony and I have had a toothbrush tradition.
It's simply that whoever gets ready for bed first puts toothpaste on the other's toothbrush.

This may seem like a silly thing to do but is something I absolutely love.

We put the toothpaste on the other's toothbrush first, before our own,
as a reminder to put their needs before our own.

If I'm out late it always seems like a big "I love you" sitting on the counter
and it's something I truly miss when we are apart.


(As an added bonus it's a great way to make sure not to go to bed angry
because it's hard to put toothpaste on a toothbrush when you are mad.
Well, without squeezing it all over the place :) )
