“Together they make perfect scents”

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Gain.







Me and my JOE.
We are a great team because we compliment each other.
I am so glad I married someone who keeps me grounded
but also makes me laugh until I cry on a daily basis.

Joe and I are better together because
we lean on one another and make each other believe
in the dreams and schemes we have.
We PUSH each other. We hold each other up. We stand on each others shoulders. We see the world together from vantage points we might have been fearful of without each other.
It's always the best when you find a person you can be 100% yourself with at all times.
That Cheesy Jerry McGuire movie really did capture it all though in one sentence:
YOU COMPLETE ME

Like for sure ever single day

I have this partner in my life that I can say anything to.

who will dance with me in shop isles without flinching who will stand in the rain and kiss me who will work side by side with me in our family business who will parent with me through thick and thin who will thrill me who will love me for me (the real messy me)

We fit.
We make sense.
Who do you fit with?

I fit with my son. We have been our own little family since he was 5. He is now 21 years old and still my BFF!

Rachel said...

I fit with my sweet husband and attached little girl.

Bonggamom said...

My husband is my perfect fit because we're always arguing. No, not fighting, I mean debating. We love to discuss issues and current affairs, and we love it when we get each other to see sides to the debate that they haven't seen before, and point out errors in each other's reasoning. Our conversations stimulate each other's minds, not (just) bodies!

happyfunpants said...

Awww...my boyfriend's name is Joe too! :) I love him - he's exactly himself - which is fantastic. He loves me for my stengths and faults too.

It's wonderful. :)

missris said...

I fit with my boyfriend. I'm neurotic and type-A and he's carefree and lighthearted. He makes sure I relax and enjoy the ride as well as the destination. My compulsive planning ensures we actually make it to the destination. We're a great match.

Meg said...

My perfect scents relationship is with my husband. We compliment each other perfectly -- both in our personalities and with our day to day emotions. Don't know how it works out that way, but it's awesome! :0)

The hubs and I fit well together -- we balance each other out. Even when he's driving me up a wall, I can't imagine my life without him.

My husband and I fit. He's got a very relaxed attitude and I'm tightly wound. We balance each other out.

Toystory said...

My husband and I fit. 38 years together -- we work side by side every day and we enjoy each others company more than anything else in this world. Gee, am I lucky or what!

Deb said...

I wanna meet Joe. My perfect fit is MS. You know! 8 years this week!

Harriett said...

Me and my husband are one of the same! I can't imagine life without him. So I Know exactly what you mean. He can get on my nerves one minute and the next minute make me love him more than ever!

Anna said...

my sister is a perfect match because she is so soft and i am very tough and straight forward :)

Cookin' Canuck said...

Without a doubt, my husband and I are a perfect match. We support each other in our various interests (or obsessions - however you want to look at it) and stick together as a team in raising our two boys.

Cinderella (aka Kristin) said...

My family. We all fit together. Some of us are level headed; some dramatic. And actually, it works good when the level headed ones get dramatic, the dramatic ones can switch roles too :)

Kelsey Kim said...

My husband and my kids...all four of us fit together like a puzzle. Seperately, the picture is skewed, but together, it's clear as a bell!

I fit with my big brother. He and I can laugh at the most ridiculous stuff while everyone else in the room just stares in wonder. I love him.

Busted Kate said...

I fit with my family... we always have a wonderful time together. Even though my brother and I are both grown now (and I'm married) we still enjoy doing family vacations together. We're going fishing this weekend!

Tammylyne said...

My perfect match is my husband,lover and best friend of 15 years. He is a biker where as I am more conservative, He is outgoing where as I am shy. He likes Rock and Roll I like Country.He likes a great party where I like to stay home. Though we may seem like total opposites, we are a perfect match because I tend to keep him grounded and he tends to bring out my wild side.

We are like Ying and Yang and one without the other would be incomplete.

I fit with my husband of 20 years. By now, we know how to relate to each other well.

cdziuba said...

cdziuba@aol.com I fit in with my husband of 28 years. I still think he's adorable.

miriama said...

I fit with my husband. He knows just when I need a hug or encouragement and I do the same for him.

SpaceCase said...

My husband, Mr. Martini, and I are a perfect match. I put up with his antics, and he gets me to loosen up more. :)

GladysMP said...

It's my husband, but strangely enough, it may be because we are opposites. I'm shy while he is the untimate extrovert. They say opposites attract and it certainly did in our case. He has brought me out of some of my shyness and I am grateful

Dorinda said...

My husband of 14 years - he is the best thing for me even if I don't know it sometimes :) He forgives and loves so completely - I could not imagine life without him nor do I want to.

Amanda said...

I fit with my husband - he is my perfect compliment and makes me so happy!

Ashley E said...

Aw, I love y'alls story! I fit with my 3 best friends, who understand me more completely than I think I do myself most days :)

Mikki M said...

My husband of 15 years and my two boys 5 and soon to be 7 are my life. They are my BFFs!

aliciaely said...

My mom makes me complete.She is my rock!

Deb ~ tnshadylady said...

My sister makes me a better person! She’s the one I share a funny joke with, go on road trips with, cry on her shoulder when I need to, or just to be there when I feel like I’m all alone in the world. I cannot imagine my life without her! She’s always upbeat and positive and is a good counterpoint when I get down in the dumps. She’s my go-to pick me up. :)

VickieB said...

At this time in my life, I would say my roommate is a perfect match. I lost John, my Significant Other and my absolute perfect fit, and she lost her husband in the same month of the same year.

We've known each other as "family acquaintances" for years (she's my son's second cousin) and it was the family, knowing our living situations at the time that suggested we become roommates. Now, we are also very good friends.

We've had similar life experiences and some similar health issues, so we can very much understand what the other is going through. I suffered a "vascular event" that I worked to overcome and she's a stroke victim. I also have a great deal of respect for the hard work she put into recovering as much as she's done.

She's brought lot a laughter into my life.

Fudge Jumbles said...

I have 2 older sisters who are twins. Although we grew up in the same house, with the same parents and similar life experiences we are 3 pretty different people.

My sister Sonia is the 'social butterfly'. If networking was an Olympic sport she would be the Michael Phelps of that event.

My sister Tonia is the 'sensitive one'. She is able to really take to heart what someone is feeling at any given moment.

Me, well I guess I am the 'blunt one'. I tend to say exactly what I mean. Which has come in handy quite a few times while other times it has resulted in me having to have my foot removed from my mouth.

So how does this translate into a perfect match you ask? When one of us finds ourselves in a situation outside of our comfort zone we can draw upon each others strengths to help us navigate through the choppy waters.

I love my sisters and feel very fortunate to have them. Having them as a 24/7 resource has helped me become a more 'socially balanced' person.

Kristi said...

I fit with my mom. I am logical and she is free spirited. We have way more fun together then we do by ourselves.

momznite said...

My work partner and I have done some fabulous tag teaming because we fit.

Just call me b said...

My perfect match is my hubby! No doubt! He brings out the very best in me!

Karen said...

I am better with my honey because my weaknesses are his strengths and his weaknesses are my strengths. We balance each other very well.

burlap+blue said...

I am better w/ my husband because our strengths balance out each others weaknesses...we are the perfect pair!

Jen said...

I'm better with my best friend, aka, my husband. We've been together for 13 years and I'm better for it. He balances me out when I'm acting crazy. He's strong in areas I'm weak in and vice versa. God had the perfect soul mate picked out for me.

Thanks for the contest!

Amie said...

Definitely the hubby! We balance each other out in all ways. We just clicked from the start too. We met in August, started dating in October, we engaged by December and married by February! 12 years later and all is well. :)

annilee said...

Hands down my son, every mother should get the chance to raise a momma's boy...he is all boy, and loves his mama something fierce. The feeling is mutual!

Jessy said...

My fit is my Mike. Five years later, he is the calm, responsible, normal, nice part of our equation. :)

St said...

My best friend and I live in two different worlds. We met when I invited her and her young son to live with us while she finished high school. She slept on the couch and he slept in our room and it was TIGHT. But even with the 13 year difference in age, she and I are now inseparable!

In Due Time said...

My SO is my perfect other half. He shows me I can (and deserve to) be loved. We're complete opposites, but that's a good thing. Where I lack, he makes up, and vise versa.

Eve said...

My best friend we have been friends for years and have been through so many things. She is my confidant.

wigget said...

my perfect match is my husband who balances me out.

Megan said...

My perfect match is my boyfriend and best friend. He is always calm and rational, and likes to stay home. I tend to be loud and occasionally irrational and like to be the life of the party. So he calms me down, makes me more focused, and I bring him out of his shell.

anonymous said...

I make perfect sense with my horse. She's perfect.

3 Boys and an Old Lady said...

I definitely fit with my hubby. He just gets me.

StephanieC said...

My perfect match is my dog.. he walks with me, makes me stop to relax and smell, and cuddles me when i get up too early!

victoria said...

Sounds silly but I fit with my dog. Pet people now what I'm talking about, but with certain animals there are connections that run deep. He knows when I'm sad, scared, happy and he's always there to remind me, life's short, be happy. :)

Sarah said...

I fit with my husband! He's my best friend and knows just how to make me laugh. Life would be dull without him :)

Amanda - RunToTheFinish said...

I fit with my husband, I know it's what a million people say and that's ok I'm GLAD!! I fit with him because there is ajust a knowing between us, no one has ever made me laugh harder and I know no one has ever pushed him to test his life boundaries. We encourage each other in all endevours and have been guiding voices through some tough times.

Emily N. said...

I fit with my mom. She accepts me and we encourage each other every day.

rubymoon said...

My sister Elle is my perfect match as she is far closer to me than any friend. She is so awesome. Always has the right words and the best hugs!

Amanda said...

I have to say my dude, as well. He gets me. I don't have to explain myself. He's seen the good and bad and accepts and loves me as I am and that's such a joy to know, so warm and comforting.

Thank you!

"Miss" Anita said...

I think it's awesome that you and your hubby "fit" so well together!

I "fit" with my best friend from high school. We can talk about anything. :)

Cheryl F. {The Lucky Ladybug} said...

My partner is my perfect fit because he's always here with me and always there for me. He is consistently caring, kind, and thoughtful in every way -- ever ready to help and lend a hand with whatever needs to be done. He's been by my side through menopause and surgery -- sickness and in health. We have our moments, but I couldn't ask for a better support system. He's my best friend, my soul mate, the yin for my yang! *Thanks* for the giveaway!

Shawna said...

My youngest son and I make a perfect fit with one another. My youngest son was born with a very rare brain disorder, but despite his challenges, he is like me in so many ways. Even just his littlest mannerisms that he does, I look at him and say "my goodness the only person I know who does that is me." We are so incredibly close and have so much fun together and I've taught him so many skills. Lately he has made a big jump in a wide range of areas. I feel like no one will ever love and appreciate him the way I do - even though my husband and family love the heck out of him. I know that God gave him to me because I needed him. He is my life and I mean that in the best possible way.

I and my husband compliment each other. We are opposites but we make a really good team together. We both love our kids like crazy. It is almost like we are one unity. It is nice having someone that close.

My perfect match is my Mom. It wasn't always like that, but now we have a lot of fun laughing and talking together.

angie lilly said...

I have been with my hubby since I was 16 and married to him since I was 19! We just celebrated our 20th first date anniversary and are going to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary in a few months! It never ceases to amaze me either. My hubby has taught me to be less selfish and controlling, has helped me to reach dream goals (like getting my degree), helped me to discover hidden talents, and just in general made me so much of a better person than I ever would have been on my own. He teaches me daily and we learn from each other.

I fit with my running shoes. My feet slide into my sharp blue and bullet silver Mizunos that let me run for endless miles throughout the Willamette Valley...down trails and running paths, up hills and mountains. We make a pretty good pair, my shoes and I.

The Gosfam said...

I fit with my family in general. I can count on my husband, my sisters, and my parents anytime. I fit with all of them.

Scott said...

My life partner is my whole world. She makes me laugh, fills me with love and longing (in a good way LOL), and brings me joy in life that is really hard to put into words. We balance each other and keep each other grounded. We support each other thru it all and know what is important (and its not THINGS).

Adria said...

My 4 yr old has been my life line since before she was born, and I don’t know what I’d do without her.

We’ll see if I feel the same way in 10 years. ;-)

Mari said...

I am a great fit with my bff, though I love my dh dearly. We have that oprah-Gail connection. We still talk on the phone every day, we giggle like school girls, and we discuss the books read and the reality shows that are our guilty pleasures.

The Bookworm said...

I fit with my hubby - he is always so calm while I'm the more stressed one. He's much more outgoing than I am. The list goes on! I don't know what I'd do with him. :)

dddiva said...

For me it is my best friend, who happens to be my mom. We always have each others backs, and support each other even when we don't agree.

Deb said...

My husband and I make perfect sense together. I am better with my spouse because we have our roles figured out, and we compliment each other by relying on our respective strengths.

Kim said...

I'm better with my boyfriend as I am kind of loose with money and he is very good with finances! Fortunate for us because I would be in serious trouble without him!

TommyGirl said...

The more I think about it, there are many people in my life that I believer are there because of some cosmic fit. But my perfect match is definitely my sister. She's my best friend and partner in crime. She keeps me sane and yet is the best at driving me nuts.

tinagirl said...

I fit with my mom! She is my best friend and offers the unconditional love that no one else does!
