or perhaps, it’s more that we WANT you.
You see, for as proud as we are of knowing where the drill is kept, and being able to hang a curtain rod on our own, there are still moments when no matter what we’re capable of, it’s You we want!
My dear husband says to me, “Guess what we’re doing today?
And I say, “Honey Do List, coming up!” …and immediately launch into 14 very important chores that must absolutely be accomplished post haste.
Dear Husband responds, “No, no. We’re not DOing anything. In fact, we’re leaving the studio so we can do nothing, somewhere else. Put your shoes on.”

Ladies- Is it not THE sexiest thing ever when your guy makes a stand and TELLS you (not asks) that you WILL take the day off and you WILL spend time together ‘just hanging out’?!

And then he drove us to a…a….it doesn’t matter! That’s my point Gentlemen- although we are Women, Hear Us Roar, we still love a man to be a Man. (kinda like the Old Spice Man. Oooh.)
And THAT is all I have to say about THAT!
Stand up for your rights to be the girl!
