"Darling Stay with Me Always."
For my D’s birthday, I took him on a fishing trip. I literally am still picking up after the weekend of sisters, friends, and pure love. It isn’t love if there isn’t some sort of mess, in the best way possible. Being out on the water, looking at my darling’s smiling face….it was just the greatest. He grew up on the water. It was a wonderful gift for all of us to give him. Turning 40 is a big birthday. However, he doesn’t look a day older than when I set my eyes on him over 10 years ago. Never thought I’d fall in love with one of my best friends. Staring at him, smiling out on the water, catching fishes was just well, perfect. It makes me insanely happy to see him smile. Relationships, marriage, it’s always a test. A test to your devotion, adoration, and patience. I wasn’t patient because I was the only one who didn’t catch a fish, but I’ll say my devotion and admiration,as well as adoration was so very present during his birthday. It reminded me to always feel that way, the way I look at him. You can be blindsided by distractions, but what is the most crucial, is you never forget the reasons why you fell into love. His smile, that just made it for me for the entire day. Time stops, the years that pass by stop. You are reminded of every single reason why you are on this earth. To live, and to love.
