place-to-relax

Are you going to make a tour when you move ?

No I won’t be. We’ve had lots of issues with people finding out where we live and coming to the house or dropping stuff off and I really want to avoid that again. I want my home to feel like a safe, private place where I can relax. 

stephenamell: Ever since we met in late 2011, my Wife has raved - no pun intended - about Coachella. I decided - in a semi joking way - that I was going to hate it for no reason whatsoever. And I’d poke fun at her when the set list was released and she’d get excited. Then I’d ask her not to contact me at all during the weekend, again, jokingly. And I DELIGHTED in the fact I knocked her up and she had to miss the festival for the first time in almost a decade. But then, in May of 2014, we fell in love with the desert… next thing you know we have a place there to relax during the Arrow season and host our friends and family. Then last year during Coachella, something felt different. She was at our house, with our friends, doing something she loves… without me. That’s not how a marriage / friendship / partnership should work. If your Wife (or whatever) loves something, you should love it too. So I did something every spouse should learn to do: I admitted I was wrong, and apologized in a very concise sentence with zero uses of the word “but”, then asked to go. And we went. We did everything she wanted to do and I got to share an experience that brought us closer together because doing something your partner loves always helps you understand them better. What a weekend. Until next year. ☀️🌵🎸❤
