When I first met my husband, he was a man who would keep up with his looks and knew what impressed ladies. I cannot fault him for that, because truth be told, that's how he got me interested. Then it was his wit, his smarts, his manners, his charms and maybe, just maybe a little of his Southern accent.
But basically, we met, we had fun talking, we connected, somewhere down the line we fell in love, we got married and a baby came soon after. Things moved fast and we are happy. I thank God every day for it.
Things change, my hair has changed, his hair has changed, he grew his beard out, all we have are the pictures we took.
There are moments which you cannot document with just pictures. Like the first date, how nervous we were, and we basically sat with a space of an invisible person between us the whole time; or when we went for a walk by the beach, where he held my hand for the first time.
(Thank goodness that he doesn't read my blog, otherwise he'd be annoyed I'm spilling it all here. He has a tough guy persona he needs to portray)
When we had to do the long distance thing, I went out and literally sniffed every bottle of laundry softener till I found the one that smelled like him and bought it. However, something was always amiss, and I could never figure it out.
Now I know.
It is amazing how a scent, could just bring back so many moments that mean so much.
Like I said, times have changed things. We are no longer young lovers, but parents to a baby. We still have our fun, but the thrill of going out to the beach to see the sunset sounds like torture for us. There are still days, we do something that is fun and reminds me that we are still young and we could be crazy for a bit longer.
We even went boating this weekend and it was such a fun day out that made me appreciate him more.
Gotta say, I love this scent on him and I love how it reminds me of all the good times with him.
