Inbetween...


Our days and weekends have been so busy, so full of preperation, of happy comings and goings, of projects and yardwork and last minute wedding shopping.
Anniebelle is asleep for the night. After I tucked her in her crib I sat down at the piano to play her to sleep, something I used to dream of doing...
David is at work, poor fellow. Bless his heart, of all days, it's his birthday and he has to work a double shift. He was up early as usual this morning to head off to work and didn't get off until after 5 tonight, with only a 3 hour break until he starts work again. I was more bummed than he was as I talked to him on the phone while he was at Costco, eating his birthday dinner with me at home staring at a small stack of presents and cards waiting for him.

Inbetween all that and packing, cause yes we are going to ID yet again this weekend, I feel the need to sneak a moment or two to just jot down a few things.

Last weekend David and I were able to get away to the Oregon Coast for two whole nights, and celebrate our 5th Anniversary. Of course we did have such a perfectly wonderful time. Best of all, I got to hog the blessed man all to myself, to giggle and tease and flirt, to hold hands and pretend we did not have a care in the world. Becuase for that 48 hours we truly didn't. I came home so refreshed. Totally happy and ready of course to be reunited with Annabelle, who spent a very happy time with her Mor Mor and several of her doting Aunties and Uncles and even a Great Grandma and who, as happy as she was to have us come and pick her up, had hardly seemed to miss us.

I know you ladies would agree with me, that there is nothing half as nice, the whole world over as being loved by a good man. Except maybe for the rose-bud kisses from the tiny mouth of the dear little one that looks just like him, that is.


Thank you David. You have succeded once again, in sweeping me off my feet. Lucky for me, that is a daily occurance around here. And Happy Birthday to the one I love, admire and wink-at more than anyone else in the world. Praying that this is a year of unfolding dreams for you.
