I'm a whole lot excited...

the last time I saw this man
~the love of my life~
our heads were in the clouds
literally and figuratively
~
we were on what felt like the edge of the world
~pikes peak~
after a death.could.happen.at.any.moment.19.mile.drive to the top
on the fourth of july
~~
he's coming home
on thursday
and
I can't wait
~~
I kind of feel like a teenager
knowing that my weekend will be filled with hand holding
and
making out in the backseat of the car
{okay fine...maybe a little more than that but you know what I mean}
~~
all I know for sure
is that I don't want to let him out of my sight
and
I want to eat at our favorite restaurant while we sit side by side
and
I want a back rub
{okay fine...maybe a little more than that but you know what I mean}
~~
love is good
isn't it
?

  1. Love is beautiful and to be cherished just like you clearly do as it is something that is extremely hard to come by. If you have true love - someone you love and someone who loves you just as much in return then you are truly blesses.

    Sounds like you are not taking your love for granted. It so nice to see, that after a long time with someone you can feel this way.

    I am very touched by your words.

  6. it's a love thang ... and I love that you share it with us, cuz it's motivating. Right now, being as I was gone so long, Double BB and I are still in the 'welcome home' mode (ahem) ... but posts like this do me a world o'good when he does something obnoxious like flick my lips just as I'm falling asleep or use my favorite lemon tea towel to detail his truck, ya know?

    HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!! But no pictures, 'k?

  9. Love is good. Barry and I work different schedules, even though we see each other briefly to pass the car keys or we're asleep together, one coming to bed and the other rising in a few hours to leave, I still feel like this when I know we're going to have a day off together, excited and giddy!

    I can only imagine, in awe, of the newness of each other... A genuine reawakening of those senses that you thought were sleeping. I am so happy for you two that I could just bust!
    Love you, shell xoxoxoxox

  21. Love is good. And great. And amazing. And wondrous. And such a blessing. What a marvelous love you live.

    I'm so excited for you two to be together again. I wanted to hear all about it. Well. Not all about it. Feel free to edit out the you know what I mean parts.
