Love


I apologize in advance if this is an "overshare" but if you frequent this Blog then you know I keep it real and this is what I'm feeling tonight...

I woke up to a text from my husband this morning that said, "Mornin Baby!"

I responded, "I love it when you call me Baby."

So he wrote back, "Baby!" :)

And then I wrote, "I also love it when you wear a bandana around your head like you did yesterday while you worked in the yard. Sexy!"

He replied, "I'll be wearing one at my game tonight."

So I said, "Then I'll be there!" ;)

But of course he didn't take my last line seriously because I never make his softball games on Monday nights. That's when I have my Women's Group meeting, so we have a standing sitter every Monday from 6:30 til 8:30pm. But--he didn't know that our sitter had cancelled this week and that I had already let my Women's Group know I would be absent and that I had planned to surprise him by showing up with the kids to cheer him on. :)

So we did show up and he was very surprised to see us. Laine yelled "Daddy" from the stands too many times and the boys cheered him on when he was up to bat. He even came out to the stands to kiss us all hello and I whispered "I told you I would be here." And he was wearing that sexy bandana. It's nice to still be "in love" after 16 years together. It's nice to still get butterflies in my stomach when I look at him. And I don't take that stuff for granted--neither does he. We married young and we endured many uphill battles over the years, but it got us to this "exact" spot where we stand today and I wouldn't trade that for the world!!
