Haven’t mentioned this on the blog this week but Kyle flew to Colorado on Sunday and he’ll be gone till the end of the week. To say that I’m homesick for him would be the understatement of the year. It may be silly to be this lonely without him after only a few days but I’m going to put it in the ‘Win’ column for our marriage that after nearly seven years together, we both teared up saying goodbye in the airport. You’d think he was going to the moon. It makes no difference, really, though. I miss Kyle when he’s in the next room. So down the hall…across the country…on Mars…I miss him.
In a spur of the moment decision on Sunday afternoon, we bought each other a paperback book (his for the airplane and mine for bedtime). Inside, we scrawled love letters and a few random notes in the margins. Kyle wants to make this a tradition so I think we’re going to start writing all our love letters in books. I kind of like it because a book is just another kind of love letter, I think (a good book, anyway!).
And because I can’t help sharing it with someone, here’s a tiny peek at what Kyle wrote to me…
Anyone have a favorite memory of a love letter?
