This has been an extremely long week and I am so happy that it's Friday! Time to Fill in the Blanks with Lauren.
 Love is wonderful. Especially when you find the perfect person to share it with.
 Being in love feels like magic. The most magical moments being the little ones that make your relationship yours.
 My favorite quote about love is "Love is friendship set on fire."
 The most important thing in a relationship is communication, flexibility and understanding. That's more than one thing. But the success of a relationship can't be defined by one element.
 A "deal breaker" for me in a relationship is someone unwilling to put in the effort when its due.
 The way I show love in my relationship is by doing the little things. I leave notes in Ryan's lunches and separate his clean laundry into piles so they are easier for him to put away. I sit with him and watch endless hours of ESPN. I give him big hugs, even if he's just leaving the room.
 I love making Ryan laugh. And Ryan.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
