2. which part do you like best?
Through her words, I find their life resemble my life with my husband a lot. Life is filled with both happiness and sorrow. As long as we are together, nothing can frighten us and we can always find a way to spice up our life. Exploring new roads, new places, we can always find something special on the way and it is exactly these unexpected and pleasant surprises that make our life so colorful and far from boring. When it comes to the role of food in life, I also find some similarity. For me, life without delicious food is so damn boring. My husband and I always try out new restaurants and make new dishes. Not only the food pleases us but also we get a lot of pleasure of meeting new people in the restaurants and overhear the conversations of the people around us. Life is truly amazing in this way.
