Full post here: A Modern Man
But I just HAD to share the highlights. Amazing, insightful, take my breath away blog. YUM!
It’s the love where I can’t sleep through the night, because I keep waking yourself up to make sure she’s still there and that I weren’t really dreaming… because it feels like a dream to have her there next to me.
It’s the kind of love that has me running out the door after work just to get home and smother her in kisses, and present her that bouquet of wildflowers that I hand-picked on the side of the freeway because they reminded me of her.
I yearn for the day that I come home from work to discover her in one of my baggy t-shirts, and a pair of old, tattered jeans with paint on her exhausted face and hair pulled back into a simple ponytail.
She explains to me that she woke up that morning and thought the living room just needed a change.
I want to spend my weekends waking up early to embark on scavenger hunts at farmers markets, garage sales, and music stores… watching her hunt for the perfect little treasure that will complete or inspire her next big project.
I want to open her doors, hold her hand, travel the world, and run to the store late at night to buy her tampons.
I want to watch romantic comedies, and have her realize at the end that I’m her prince charming, or her knight in shining armor. And together, we’ve got it better than any fairy tale.
I want to dance in the kitchen at 2:00 in the morning, and kiss her flat on the mouth after telling her I’m sorry for proving her wrong. Just kidding… she’ll never be wrong.
I want to be in love. You know… that can’t-eat, can’t-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over- the-fence, world-series kind of stuff.
And I don’t want to be afraid to tell her… because it’s true.
I love her.
And I always will.
And that’s the honest truth.
