A love letter

It’s funny, you’ve always been a part of my life.  I can remember being a kid and seeing you, sometimes I would be walking… More likely I was on my bike though.

You were always there.  Waiting on the corner.

Something happened about 18 months ago though.  I looked at you in a different way.  Maybe it was how the sun gleamed off your siding, or maybe it was how you looked a little weary….   I don’t know exactly what it was.  But I know the moment when I saw you and suddenly everything was different.  And I wanted to get to know you better.

I started daydreaming about you.  All. The. Time.  And I couldn’t sleep.  I would doodle your picture on scrap paper.  And I find myself talking about you even when the conversation had nothing to do about you.

I would imagine cleaning you up, dusting you off.  Applying cheery paint and warm wooden floor.  I pictured kids walking in and hanging out and the smell of coffee in the air.  I thought about mamas and their babies getting food for dinner, and G’ma’s and G’pa’s popping in to say hi and staying for awhile.

I lost myself in daydreams about how fun it would be to dress you up for holidays and the seasons.  Pumpkins!  Pine Trees!  Ice Cream!  Every season… a new way to make you shine.

I pictured mason jars full of salad….  Pretty and luscious  –  ready to take for lunches.

And when I think about you… I get a little starry eyed.

Falling in love is so lovely.

I’m so glad it’s with you.
