I am making the bed and moving on...to a new project for the new year.
Though I hope to wake with you, C, for the rest of my days.
This morning moment is being brought back within the intimacy of just you and me.
Readers...Thank you so much for following this and reading this...I truly enjoyed the process of documenting this moment and these thoughts for the last 6 months.
I also have a new and exciting daily documentation planned for the new year so keep posted.
And have sweet dreams and even sweeter lives.

Uncertainty is in my morning air.
Questioning of what I am meant to do in this life, in this situation.
Trying to trust that all this is meaning something...
leading to something.
I am grateful that I am not uncertain in you.
This knowing gives me courage and faith in this life.
It allows me to let go.

today as I woke into the the warm light of the day.
There was a heavy quietness and stillness to the air, even as I could hear the traffic rushing by outside...
and I smiled knowing this was a day to celebrate you, cheers to you, sing to you, love to you.
Happy birthday to you, my sweet love.

Little faithful LB has been my only sleep companion as of late.
My coughs and tossing and turning have forced you out to the couch night after night.
And though I deeply appreciate LB's faithful purring as I cough up my insides
I have to say I am very ready to have you back in bed and my lungs at rest....

I keep chasing you out of bed with my coughs and clearing of the throat.
I hate that you leave to go on the couch, though I understand....
But when I am sick all I want is comfort from you and because you do not want to be sick
you treat me like I am the plague.
I wish you didn't hate sickness so much.

I don't know what is up, the planets are aligned, the season has changed, or I am simply exhausted-but I am sleeping as hard as a rock, as deep as an ocean, and as heavy as a elephant.
And I am loving it, I actually feel like I get rest when I wake up in the morning.
Now with that said I still hate getting out of bed.

It seems that we are underwhelmed by our circumstance...and that weighs on us this morning.
It's alright, we will figure it out... and in the process build our life, our family, our home...and it will be beautiful...it already is beautiful and we are just beginning the process,
you and me.

you were not in bed when i woke up.
i was glad, i could stretch out and be alone.
plus, you have been really getting on my nerves this week.
sometimes you are a spoiled brat and act like i am your maid and servant.
so yeah, i was glad you were not in our bed this morning.

5 years ago, this was the day before I married you.
It was beautiful, overnight the trees along the road and ceremony spot had turned fire red...
We awoke to the sounds of the tables and tent being assembled outside...
My mom was somewhere telling someone to do something in order to help make our day just as i imagined it. (thanks mom).
My best friend from college was on her way...
It was a day filled with family and love. (actually a weekend filled with this)
Around 5: 30 we realized we never got our marriage license, and then found out your grandparents forgot on their wedding day 50 years ago too.
Our rehearsal dinner was filled with smiles, toasts, kisses, and wine.
I love looking at the pictures from that nights because everyone is beaming with happiness.
I fall asleep exhausted with the breeze coming in through the windows.
Knowing this will be the last time I fall asleep without you as my husband.
And everyday and night I still am deeply grateful and lucky and happy for this.
