Big A makes me swoon.
He melts my heart, and he still gives me butterflies in the pit of my tummy.
It's no secret. I mean, I have promised to spend the rest of my life with the guy!
We've always enjoyed venturing on little living projects together. From the numerous pets that have made their way into our home over the years, to starting our very own indoor garden, we love watching our hard work pay off in a completely tangible way. During our efforts, I always loved to sit back and watch him as he worked. I would study his face as he frantically raced a mid-whiz puppy through the house to the front door. I would examine his hands as he, ever so gently, transplanted a week-old seedling. And my heart soared.
But then the game changed.
We decided to work together to make our love, the love that stains every inch of my veins, tangible.
And we did.
And, let me tell you how unprepared I was.
I cannot begin to count the tears, and I mean big, thick, raindrop sized tears, that have fallen from my eyes.
To see the man I love so deeply cherish and adore our very own little human does something unexplainable to my heart. I'm literally witnessing a miracle.
And, sometimes, in the midst of stinky diapers, and soiled clothes, and spit up, and crying, and teething, and...
it's easy to forget the miracle.
Take time to remember today.
Until next time,
