Carrie Underwood recently told Us Weekly that she and husband Mike Fisher are committed to making time together a priority . “Because we are so busy, we make our time together count. We go on dates and make sure to make that extra effort,” she said. And there they were a few weeks ago, arm in arm with Minnie Mouse at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida. Underwood even added she never thought guys like Fisher existed. (“He loves me and all of my craziness!” she shared.) But what I thought was so sweet is that she said she and Fisher text and tweet their “I love you’s” every day when one of them is away touring or playing hockey. I’ve never seen Underwood or Fisher actually say “I love you” on Twitter, so maybe they just direct message each other. Or, maybe tweets like “Happy anniversary to my handsome, sweet, smart, wonderful husband! Can’t believe it’s been 2 years! Time flies!” count as love tweets.
