Unsuspecting Victim!

Here we are taking a sweet picture in the car and then I turn the camera around and Bamm! This is what I see. We laughed until we cried after seeing this outcome. (I do realize that I look just as crazy in this picture.. the difference is that it was NOT intentional, I just look crazy.. naturally)

Here we are after our first dinner date in New York! well, our first dinner out EVER!! Once again, I turn the camera around to look at our darling picture and this is what I see. This one too, brought us to tears!!
I love this man.

I hope it NEVER gets easier!!

So I found myself hardly able to sleep last night. This was partly due to the two boys who were up and down all night either crying, burning up with a fever or throwing up. The rest of the time was about Cliff... who did not have a good day yesterday. This left me feeling so terrible. So .. helpless. I found that the only thing I wanted was for him to feel better. I hate when he is angry or upset. It literally makes my chest hurt when I think of all he has to do at times. I just want to take his burdens and lighten his load.. although I think a lot of his burden has to do with the boys and myself right now but I just want him to be happy.

I hope that I always feel this way when he is upset. I hope that all I ever want for him is happiness and love. I hope that his happiness is always first and foremost in my thoughts. This is what it is supposed to be like, RIGHT?!

Cliff, Honey, I love you. I hope that today is a GREAT day for you. I miss you and can't wait to see you Saturday!

Things that make us laugh until we cry!!

If you start to feel like THIS ....... Then maybe you should try.....
This. with a little bit of honey on the side. Let me tell you that more than one evening has been spent nearly on the kitchen floor laughing until I almost wet my pants!! Cliff and I were both in tears and it was quite the show when we visited our friend, Janet and partook of the amazing Apple Cider Vinegar there. It has been sooooo fun! I do not know if it ever helped Cliff's gas, this being the reason we tried it to begin with; but oh the funny, funny memories it has left us with.

(Okay.. you must read this one with a Chinese accent)
This, my friends is HIDDEN TURTLE. You must try it with your significant other..
It may make you laugh until you cry
You will not know unless you try.
You may also wet your pants.
It may make you want to dance.
Either Way, It is good.
Ah, yes.... Even more hidden turtle.
Hidden Turtle is Very, Very
Good Fo You.!


There is more, so much more... but I don't want to give away all of our secrets!

I miss You.

This morning as I turned from your embrace and walked into the airport, my eyes welled up with tears. I think of how much I am going to miss you from that very second until I am in your arms again for a short time.

I find solace in your eyes and in your touch. Your smile and your voice warms my heart.
I love you.

You know it's love when you can't stop thinking about him.

You know it's love when you'd rather be in a relationship-apart than not in a relationship at all.

You know it's love when your happiness is dependant on his.

The Perfect Day!

A Letter to the Man I love.

My Dearest Mr. Lovely,

Honey.... You had a hard day yesterday, for that I am sorry. This morning is certainly off to a great start because you called me at 6:03 am. You don't know how happy it makes me to hear your voice in the morning. I love that I fall asleep to your voice and that I wake up to your voice.

You are such a treat to know and love. I am a very lucky woman. Our boys (I have never been able to say that to anyone) are so lucky to know and love you.

I love your sweet smile and your kisses. I love your hugs and I LOVE HOLDING HANDS with you. I never dreamed mine could fit so perfectly in someone else's.

Being with you is like a dream. It is a dream that I never want to wake up from. I want to frolic in the sun (in low humidity of course) and lay with my head on your chest as I listen to you breathing all day every day.

You make me happy so happy, My Dearest Mr. Lovely. I am so looking forward to the day that I become your MRS. LOVELY. Thank you for your love and your beautiful spirit. I love the laughter that erupts and the fun that ensues when you are around. :)

I love you my Sweet, Kind, Loving, Sexy, Phabulous, DID I mention SEXY...... Man

My heart is yours for the rest of life.... maybe longer.

I long for the day...

Tonight as I was making dinner (at 8:30pm) after rushing in from church, I was keeping an eye on my cell phone, waiting for Cliff to call. I stopped and thought for a moment about what it will be like when I am just waiting for him to call and tell me that he is on his way home from work. I long for the day when I can have a (not too hot :) dinner ready and waiting for him every night of the week. (Hmmm, okay lets be realistic. I will at least promise to always have TACO FIXINGS available every night of the week :)
I long to see the boys rush him as he walks through the door, instead of wait in line to speak with him on the phone. I long for the day that I can fall asleep to more of him than just the sound of his voice. I sleep with a cell phone gripped in my hand most nights. When I wake up through the night, I just tap a button and his face lights up on my phone. I take what I can get for now!!
I long for the days to come.... When we are together!
