The Old Couple

DH and I have been savoring the maturation of our relationship. That's the best I can describe it. In the past few weeks, even though we've been stressed and snapping at each other, there have been these strange and warming glimpses of humor and acknowledgment of our relationship which only shows me the strength and foundation we have built together.
I can't really place it but it's the small things within a conversation or sometimes the unsaid saids.
For example, I'm not mad or upset when shiny objects throw my train of thought out the car window. One moment I'm talking a mile a minute passionately about something and the next I become distracted and instead of getting angry at each other, we both laugh for a good ten minutes only to remember 30 minutes later my passionate conversation (which really was a one sided speech) was merely about how I think our dishwasher is having a rinsing problem.
Does this mean were hitting the official old couple zone?
