Everlasting Love


Good morning, loves!  And happy Thursday to you all.

I have to apologize in advance for the rather sappy post today.  Just feeling terribly romantic and lonely for my love.  We've been together for so long now...since we were wee babies it seems...that any time apart is usually a bit difficult.  And this trip seems particularly long because of the length and also the time difference making it difficult to communicate.

Remembering back to our teenage days, way before email or texting, when we used to send each other love letters.  We still have a huge box stuffed with our correspondence from way back when.  It was so romantic and everlasting.

Tonight as I sit home along missing J like crazy perhaps I'll open that box to reminisce a bit.  Although I'm pretty sure, 26 years later, that the longing to be together today is at least the same as back then, if not greater.  And I know I'm so incredibly lucky to feel this way and to have this love.  Still, to this day, my heart skips a beat whenever I see Js name in my inbox or hear Js ring on my phone.  It's quite silly really.  As if I'm a teenager in love.

Back then I remember all we wanted to do is run away and get married and spend forever together.  It seemed like an impossibility in those days but we were fortunate enough to make it a reality.  It's like I'm living this amazing dream and sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind myself that it's real.

So there you have it.  My outpouring of sappiness and love today.  Sorry if it was unbearable but you can't say I didn't warn you ;)

Hope you all have a day filled with lots of love!

xoxo

livesimplybyannie said...

It was the exact opposite of sappy-- I absolutely love the fact that you've been together for soo long!!! Too sweet!! And I really know what you mean-- despite the fact that I have been together with my love for MUCH less time than you with yours, the butterflies are still there, every time his name pops up on my phone. Sometimes, when its just that person, it's just that person. ya know?

SabinePsynopsis said...

Aahh Dawn, I'm convinced true love can never be sappy! And how incredibly romantic to send J a public declaration of love. You two are a wonderful couple. xoxo

Leslie said...

I love all this personal sappy stuff! I'm glad you appreciate, and don't take for granted, what you have. Too many couples do that and end up tanking. A solid relationship takes a lot of work .. so keep the fire going!

No need to worry love, I'm the same way when my husband is gone. I don't like it for a second. Most people are thrilled to be on their own or go out with their friends, but I'm a mess when my husband has to go for work. He'll be actually going away on Sunday, but thankfully only for a night. But, I'll still be un-happy for it. We're best friends, so I'm sad when he goes. I send you a BIG big hug and lots of love & hope the time goes by quickly!! xoxo

Debby Steele said...

Wow. Amazing. You are one lucky girl. So happy that you have a love that is so special - and in my opinion, very rare. I'm glad that you appreciate it and cherish it. xo

Lindsey @ be pretty said...

I love your outpour of sappiness... so pretty and so well put. 26 years and still this in love - Dawn you and J are giving me something to look forward to! That's amazing! And it's even more special that you still get chills when receiving emails and phone calls... ahhhhh, so sweets! I can tell that y'all miss each other like crazy right now! Great post and beautiful pics! xx

Samantha Green said...

oh my goodness, i love this! aww, my heart is beating a little quicker now -- what an amazing love you have and what an inspiration that you have been in love for so long and still feel the same, strong feelings now. i can only hope i feel exactly the same for my love in 26 years time. oh, i really, really do hope so!! :) xx
