It started with an embrace...


Yesterday was the anniversary of my first date with Ron.  I remember it so well.  Our first date. 

When he saw me that day, he hugged me. An embrace that was strong and tender at the same time.

An embrace I still feel.  Butterflies.

He sent a dozen red roses to me at work the next day. 

Right now he's in Dubai.  Far, far away.  But he was right here with me all the same.

He sent me a text.  Did you know a text can reach across the world and warm you like an embrace?  It can.  It can fill your eyes with water...

"We have been together for more than half our lives.
My heart skips a beat each time I see you.
I love you."

Do you remember, dear friends?  I mentioned how I had decided this is the year of my unfolding.  Here.  To a certain degree.  In this journal, I will share more of myself with you.  Today, I wanted to share a bit of who my love is. 

Thank you for stopping by, and
thank you for being you...xo
