Yesterday was truly Love Thursday.
I started my day with a run, which never happens lately, and surprisingly it felt good. Really good. Well, besides the jiggling parts on me it felt good. It was just nice to breathe in the clean, brisk air and watch the horizon change from a stripe of pink into a lovely, clear blue, endless sky. I have been missing my mornings outside in the desert and this was the perfect start to my day.
The day progressed with a nice breakfast, some enjoyable reading (Life Of Pi), followed by a long, hot shower. Then Pitter, Little M and I packed up a picnic and met my sweet husband for a lunch date at the park. J and I were able to spend half an hour together under a shady tree watching our kids swing and slide to their hearts content. The weather was perfect and so was our short time together.
That evening I was happy to go to a get-together with my crafty friends and eat amazing food and visit with some amazing women. Oh, and of course make some super clever Valentine crafts that Kim so graciously slaved over prepped for all ten of us.
Theses little love note boxes turned out so cute and I found myself thinking about how lucky I was to have such a supportive and loving spouse to share my life with.
I got home really late (of course) and even though I was about to make a bee-line for my bed, J convinced me to take a minute to talk on the couch. It had already been a busy week of Girl Scout meetings, Dr. appts. and such and we hadn’t gotten a chance to be on our own. I forget how little we actually do see of each other, let alone have some quiet time alone just to talk. We sat there chatting and were both surprised to notice later that it was 4am! How great that after 12 years of knowing each other, we still have so much to say and share with each other.
