All Because...

{full on babies}

Husband's little brother came to dinner last night with his new girlfriend. Relishing in their newness took us back to a time in which we were new & all aflutter.

I met husband in 1999 when shorts were short & thongs were not on your feet. This was the year after I'd graduated high school & entered the foreign terrain of big league dating. It's a strange transition - the day after graduation. It suddenly becomes acceptable to date returned missionaries (21 year old boys, back from serving two year missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints). What?!! It's kind of fun & kind of creepy all at the same time.

So here I was, not wanting to date boys who were about to go on missions, because that's just asking for a heartache, but also wary of dating boys home from missions because they wanted to get married. Yikes! So this odd transition of there not being any 19 or 20 year old guys around was peculiar. And something I'd never really given much thought about until I was being hunted by both parties like an exotic kill.

While still trying to sort out this strange new territory, I went on a date with a boy I'd been hunting myself. Interestingly enough, he was one of Husband's best friends. And although things didn't work out between my original target & I, I sacked my best prize yet.


So last night while we watched little bro & gal snuggle close & whisper sweet nothings into each others' ears, our own eyes met while cutting Dot's meat & pouring Son's milk. I notice he's more handsome today than he was all those years ago. His new hairs of gray above his ears are lovely because we earned them together. {Who knows what I've got going on under all these highlights & color. Eek!}

I have no regrets babe. I'd do it all over again everyday. I know why I fell for you & I know now I love you even more than ever.

It's nice to be reminded that we don't want to be with anyone else. It's nice to know I'm the only one for him & he's everything I could have ever dreamed of.

Hence, I'm glad you fell into my trap Husband. And thank you for not escaping.

Your homework: Remember why you feel in love today & then show that person you've never forgotten.
And if you need help with ideas... just see the "Business Time" post.
That should do it.
