There are a lot of ways a couple can express themselves inside their place. Over at Club Broad St. (as we like to call our apartment) we do so on our fridge mostly. I think you can tell a lot about a person or a couple from what they put on their refrigerator door. (Disclaimer: There is nothing scientific about what I’m about to say, but I bet you’ll find some truth to it!) For instance: If there’s nothing on the front of the fridge, they’re probably totally Type A, organized, neat freaks. If it’s filled corner-to-corner with family photos and pictures of all sorts, they’re most likely closeted hoarders (like us!) who are big on family and friendship (and/or have an awesome camera!). If it’s filled with things like lists, notes, menus, or coupons, they’re probably trying to make a change of some kind in their lives. I could go on and on about what other people’s refrigerators tell me, but instead I’ll just analyze ours.
We’re a little messy. (That full page magazine clipping brushes the door every time we open it, yet neither of us has made any effort to move it up in the two years it’s been posted there.)
We love the kids, even though we don’t have our own yet. (Notice pictures and reminders of cute babies, just not all of the same one?)
We order in way more than we cook. (I see more easy-access menus than recipes, don’t you?)
We travel a lot. (There’s a little collection of vacation magnets going on in case you missed it.)
We can poke fun at ourselves. (My “I’m really a size 10, but I just keep it covered in fat so it won’t get scratched” magnet is true and hilarious each and every time I read it.)
We love our dog a little more than most. (Yes, that’s a magnetized image of The Dog!)
We like organized chaos in our home. (It doesn’t look neat, but if you notice, most pictures make the top and most menus are at the bottom.)
We’re forgetful and sometimes inconsistent. (We have more God children and received more holiday cards/invites than the fridge lets on, but somehow we haven’t remembered to put them all up yet.)
What’s on your fridge? What does it say about you? Even better, got a photo?
