A Letter

I have recently decided that I am going to make it a weekly venture to write a letter to my husband here on my blog. Hopefully you will enjoy this undertaking if not, I do apologize but, I feel as though this is something I need to do.

Dear Husband,

Today I woke  up to a happy man, which has been quite unusual these last few days. I was so pleased to be hugged and held by you. Have I ever told you how pretty I feel when you hold me? Your touch makes me light up and for the time that I am in your arms it is as though the planets have aligned and I am just part of a perfect moment.

Today we didn't do much but, that is what you wanted. We have been so busy this last week. Yesterday you told me that today was going to be a day you spent for you. Today you spent much of your time in front of the T.V. playing "Prince of Persia" on your XBOX 360, and I didn't mind, I had a very pleasant and happy husband. Your content smile just filled me right up and I was happy with that. 

This evening Ryan came over and the two of you played video games together. It is as if this friendship you have built has become a part of your being, you two speak in a different language, many times it is hard for me to follow. Ryan joined us at my parents place for dinner. I think it is so cool that Ryan doesn't mind coming to my parents place, it isn't exactly quite, you know with my three younger siblings one of which has the vocal capasity of say a police siren! I am sure you appreciate a friend who doesn't mind being part of the family.

After dinner the we came back home and the two of you continued your gaming till about 10:00pm. I baked some Red Velvet Cupcakes. Now here I am writing a letter to you, my cupcakes are almost done and we are both relaxing. 

Thank you for being such a great friend, and loving me. I just want you to know that even though you have been slightly grumpy the past few days I am totally in love with you and care for you and love you in spite of your grumpiness....actually one might say that I find your grumpiness ever so slightly alluring. I wont lie though, I prefer the happy you.


Your Loving Wife.

Oh how I love it when the air changes and you know that summer is here...or at least arriving soon! I love being able to walk through the community forest and see all the Black-Eyed Susan's in full bloom glowing in the heat of the sun. I always look forward to the weekends away where me and my darling husband can cuddle and relax as if we have no care in the world. I love the weekends at the cabin where we go to the farmers market to buy our food, although if we had one here we would all the time, and spend our nights watching fireworks displays put on by neighbours and occasionally ourselves. Oh how I enjoy the walks in the evening where the sun is shining down on us as we march through the long grass and occasionally dance down the paths right near our house.

Summer brings me a new life every year where I feel as if I have a whole world of possibilities to breath in! So much many things that I have to look forward that lie ahead of me and all I have to do is live that moment and enjoy it for what it is and smile as moments pass and I am left with what I was looking for. Sometimes the most unexpected things are the things you never knew you were looking for until they are right in front of you and it hits you, "this is what I wanted!"

So I leave you with this summer blessing:
Enjoy each moment for that it is and breath it in and live it up!
