I know I've said it many times before but Chris and I couldn't be more opposite. I could make quite the list about ways that we are so different. I think that a lot of couples can relate to that. Which is why sometimes buying gifts for couples can be challenging since they are so different.
You can believe how excited I was when I was contacted by Target Wedding to help interpret their theme of "Be Yourself, Together." Just like two people who are very different can work well together, the same can apply for two gifts. They seem separate on their own, but together can create something more.
When I checked out some registry items, I knew just the thing that could represent how different Chris and I are, but how we work well together. A bicycle and running clothes.
When I was training for the marathon our first year of marriage I would have loved it if Chris ran it will me. Or even ran a few of my training runs with me. However he is definitely not a fan of running. Actually sweating in general. Here's a picture from the Chicago marathon. What gives it away that Chris isn't actually running the marathon. His chunky shoes, khaki shorts or that he is just too happy to be on mile 18?
While he wouldn't run it with me, he did want to support me as I was training. So he decided he would bike next to me while I ran. It definitely didn't seem fair for him to be biking so easily and slowly, next to my attempt at fast running, but it was really appreciated.
So while he may not be a runner and I may not enjoy biking, the two go quite well together. And what girl wouldn't be happy opening some clothes as a wedding gift, right?
