It was during the hardcore NYC heatwave not to long ago. It was so sticky hot that you do not want to touch anyone or anything. even in our Apt with the AC blasting, fans on and us in our skimpies it was too hot. On the couch my Boyfriend or Best Friend launches into a full body hug and i love it. He isn’t touchy feely and I am so most of the time I am the one holding back all the mush. So He’s hugging the crap outta me and said “Why are we doing this?” and I smile and rub his bald head “Because you LOVE me SOOOO much.” and he looks up and says “I do.”

It was hella-sweet.

I love this post, it is so easy to get caught up in the “waiting” part that you forget about the now and how amazing it is to be dating. 

Yesterday I went out to run errands and came home to my SO just sitting on my couch watch sports (we do not live together). I thought to myself that this was typical guy behavious until i looked around and everything was clean.. dishes done, bed made.. even my makeup was in its bag and not spread out on the counter the way i left it! 

I was go grateful!! I too almost cried when he told me to get my book and go out back where he had hung my new hammock under a tree for me to relax in.

That’s such a sweet story ๐Ÿ™‚

 

This weekend my boyfriend and I went to my family reunion. My 99 year old great grandma was there. Now, understand that she has a very hard time remembering people sometimes — when they’re new or she hasn’t seen them in a while. She’s met my boyfriend about half a dozen times or so.

 

She hugged and greeted me all happy like she always does, and then she hugged my boyfriend, turned to some extended family members, and introduced him by saying “and this here is her Kevin, and he’s a good man.” ๐Ÿ™‚ She’s always really liked him and even pulled me aside once to tell me how much she liked him during a moment of lucidity.

 

It means SO much to me to have my great grandma’s blessing and approval. If anyone knows a good man, it’s her ๐Ÿ˜‰ she was married to her husband for over 70 years until his passing 6 years ago.

 

ETA: I meant to say that it meant a ton to me that she remembered him…even his name! I was really surprised.
