Wedded Wednesday


I remember back when Hubby and I were dating there were times when I just wanted to be near him.  And it didn't matter what I needed to do to be with him, I would do it.  Walk across campus? Sure.  Walk across two campuses (we didn't go to the same college!)? Sure.  Raining? That's what umbrellas are for, right?

And sure, eleven years later I still want to be near him - but do I really go out of my way to do that?  Not always.

Except for Friday.  I knew he had to work late, blech.  I knew I missed him.  I knew I was pretty lonely at the house.  And all I wanted was to be near him.  So what was I going to do about that?

I dressed the kids.

I packed a picnic.  (I love how that's only 4 words typed out - seems simple enough - but the activity seriously took me at least 30 minutes!)

I loaded the kids in the car.

I drove to his office.

We surprised him!  (After work, of course.  I doubt this would have the same reaction if you showed up at say 1pm).

And hubby and I sipped cold beer as the sun set and the kids ran wild in the grass.

What are you willing to do to be near him?

You can pack a picnic and bring me beer anytime, even 1pm. Heehee.

What a fun surprise! I would have to think of an "inside" surprise because my hubby works outside... lol
