him+me=love

He laughed his way out the door yesterday and it lingered within me all day.  An extra push towards a weekend full of possibility.  Every other week we have three days off together... and though the days fly by in an ordinary flurry of crazy, they are our days, our beautiful days.  And once in a while... we manage to sneak off for a date. 
his choice of breakfast and mine...

This time we spend fills me.  It fills me, and excites me... as we journey to another phase of us.  There was a time when I thought the kids would never be just-a-bit-older... and now?  Life is racing towards a time when it will be just us once again.  And so when we take an hour or so to wander a farmers market, or grab a couple of stools at a bar to share burgers & tacos, it is a glimpse of tomorrow.  And it is good
It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart...
Try as I may I could never explain what I hear when you don't say a thing.

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me

There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me...
Whenever I fall.
-lyrics from When You Say Nothing at All by Ronan Keating



There is no doubt that he is the love of my life.  Not one...

We share a love for odd foods at breakfast. (today I had fish and leftover noodles)
This is just so sweet.....and heart warmning. You know, I feel the same way and you know, we are both very lucky too.
Love to you both.
Enjoy your three days!!

Sound Man and I haven't been on a date in so long! I get those glimpses, too, when we do get to spend some time just by ourselves. So many couples end up with "What now?" when their kids move out...and I'm so thankful that when that day does happen (and I'm not rushing it here by any means) we will step into that phase of our lives as eagerly as when we first got married. : )
