when he's not working at home, my husband works by the sea. i would be on cloud nine if it were me ~ i could hardly focus on my tasks! but he hardly ever goes, as his job is intense (he works to protect our country), so although he loves what he does, he's always just so ready to come home afterward. i can understand that. also, he's not quiiiite as deeply in love with the sea as i am, so when i was there the other day to spend a little time on "his" beach before he finished work & we went to dinner, i got the best surprise : i was happily treasure-hunting & picture-snapping on this winter beach (hence, the bundling up ~ it's still really chilly here in northeast florida! ❄️), when all of a sudden i looked up & ... saw my sweetheart standing there on the sand, smiling at me. he was going to wait for me in the parking area, but decided to come on down, in his work slacks & shoes! and he stayed with me for a while, & even beachcombed with me & carried the beach bag. come on ~ what a guy, right?! one of many reasons why i love him so. a seafoam heart had even appeared to mark this special afternoon! and then monday was what we call our "love anniversary", different from our wedding date. we met in virginia while still quite young, & i had sunny california livin' dreams i was saving for, & broke his heart when i moved away. but it was okay ~ we each had more of a single life to live, & other relationships to experience. we eventually reconnected &, on a day over 20 years ago, when he was a navy sailor stationed in italy, he took leave & flew to me & my little l.a. south bay apartment, & within hours we knew this love was real & exceeded all we'd otherwise known, & we committed to spending our lives together. and here we are still to this day. ain't love grand? happy love anniversary to my dear moonshadow. your sunshine loves you so!
