Dear Husband,


Dear husband,

Happy Valentines Day! Today I have to work both jobs so we don't get to celebrate until tomorrow, but I hope you know how much I am thinking of you today and how much I love you each and every day. Today is more than just the candy, gifts and cards. Today is a reminder of love, a reminder that we are here to find love and give love. Today is a reminder that you are my partner in life, the one who is always by my side, the one that I love. There are days we are on completely different pages and arguing over basically nothing. But those bad days? Those days we get on each others nerves and push each others buttons? Those remind us of how amazing the good days are. How would we be able to appreciate the good if we never knew what the bad felt like? So today, remember not only our good days together but the not so good ones too. Combined they have given us a life together and I could no be happier with our life.

I love waking up next to you every morning, knowing that I have someone to take on the world with me every single day. I love that your goal every day is to make me smile and make my day just a little happier. I love that you know how to get me to relax and try so hard every day to make it happen. I love the way you smile and laugh when I tickle you. I love that you want to make my dreams a reality. I love that you have never wavered from my side. I love building our life together day by day, brick by brick. I love knowing that when I am old and grey and probably senile, you will still be there by my side. I love planning our future together, talking about a family and places we want to travel. I love that you will walk around endlessly through Target with me because you know it makes me happy. I love that you fully support my coffee addiction. I love you because of who you are and how you make me feel. I love you because you make me want to be the best version of myself every day.

I love you.
Happy Valentines Day.

Fall List.

The leaves change to beautiful colors. The air gets crisp, but is perfect for leaving the windows open all day. Pumpkins and apples take over. Sweaters get pulled out of storage. Boots make their way to the front of your closet. Staying home under a blanket to eat popcorn and watch a movie on a cold Friday night sounds better than going out. Hot tea and cider warm your insides and make you feel like magic. Candles get lit and bring peace to your home.

Fall is my favorite. 

I have already gone apple picking. I have devoured more pumpkin spice lattes and coffees than is probably healthy. I have painted pumpkins and enjoyed my pumpkin spice candles burning. Tea has become a nightly thing and sleeping with the windows open with crisp air blowing in has been awesome.

There are a few more things on my bucket list for Fall. 

+ Make pumpkin bread
+ Carve a pumpkin
+ Jump in the leaves
+ See the foliage in NH
+ Have a spiked apple cider from the Barley House
+ Have a fall crafting day
+ Make apple chips
+ Take scenic/foliage pictures

What have you already done? Or hoping to do this fall?
I cannot believe it is already October 11th.

these days.



Monday was long. I was anxious about Aarons hip surgery, I knew it would go fine, but I couldn't shake the anxiety. He was a trooper and is doing better than the last time when he had his other side done. I was the happiest when I got to walk into recovery and see him, full of smiles waiting for me. He doesn't remember much of the recovery room, but he just smiled the whole time and refused to let go of my hand- it was just what I needed. We came home Tuesday and it has been easy and rough and everything in between. We are taking it day by day, and day by day he gets a little better.

But these days...

We have a really weird sleep schedule, 2am bedtimes with a few wake ups.
We nap, a lot.
We watch a lot of boy meets world.
We eat popsicles, Jell-o and ice cream.
We cuddle.
We take one day at a time.

Today holds more of the same, but I'm okay with that. All I want to do is make sure he has no pain and that I am doing my best to take care of him.

What have you been up to?
