Smiling

Monday, May 23, 2011

John finally returned from his Alabama vacation this weekend and this beautiful bride's smile was not unlike my own when he walked in the door on Saturday night! It was the first time I'd slept in the new apartment alone, and while I'll admit it was fun to watch chick flicks while painting my toenails and giving myself an at-home facial, it wasn't more fun than having my sweetheart around! The truth is that I just sleep better when he's next to me!

How were your weekends? Did anything absolutely divine happen, or did you enjoy a deliciously lazy reprieve?

  1. This photo is gorgeous, Lena. And I am so happy your sweetie has returned home to you :) I have to agree that while alone time sure is nice there's something about having your sweetie next to you that cannot be matched! xo

  21. That is such a sweet photo! It is funny because I can remember a time way back when, when having Kyle in my bed was a pain! Now, like you, it is weird to sleep without him!

  24. I'm totally with you on that one! I hate when Kenny is away, and having him back from India was the best reunion ever. :) That bride's smile is the perfect image for the way it feels to have our sweethearts near.

  28. I am exactly the same way on the rare occasion Tiho isn't here when I go to sleep. I need him next to me in our big bed (and am convinced that zombies and/or scary men will get me in the night when he's not there).
