Evolution of LOVE!









It's odd seeing a photo if Mike and I. Just Mike and I, alone, sans the kiddos. I'll have those moments in time where I remember what life was like just the two of us. It was good and wonderful and special. I was all he needed and he all I needed. Happy and young and in love and content to dream of life where some day more then the two of us would make up US.

5 plus years later, post just the two of us stage, I have to say it's all of the same amazing feelings brewing inside only bigger and better...good, wonderful and special. What's changed? What's the same? Is it possible that this is exactly what love feels like as it evolves over time, is added to and expands to include others? I dare say YES!

To see yourself and your partner grow into a new and different roll is incredible! I melt when I see a tiny baby resting in my husbands arms. It's never more endearing then to be held in bed after a long day of fighting kids and finding shoes. It's completely different to talk till 11 about commutes and tomorrows To Do List. And laughing about toddler antics and Drama Queen moments are the glue that keep us connected and in sink each day. It's all part of falling for it! LIFE that is... the life we used to dream about we now live and welcome it as it changes us.

So am I more in love then I was 8 years ago. Absolutely! Sure makes me excited for the next 8 years and so on!
