Oh. My. Goodness. For the past couple hours, I have been going through the popular page on Instagram. I came across this little family…and oh my. I cannot handle all of the cuteness D: The wife’s username is madebysohn and her husband’s is jamesfitzfranz. Oh my gosh. Go die from cuteness! NEOW. I just came across a picture that she took in the bathroom. Her husband wrote on a piece of paper: “You don’t have to look in the mirror. You’re beautiful.” and stuck it to the bathroom mirror. Aksdfnakldfn. Much romance. I love!!! And they love Jesus!!! WINNING.

We’ve been married for 16 years. We’ve both gotten a bit rounder than we used to be, but what isn’t hotter has grown warmer. I have to admit I never really understood how growing older would be when I was younger. Let me see if I can explain what I mean.

When I see my wife now, it’s like looking at a person in a time warp. She has a certain smile that takes me back to a memory of our honeymoon. There is a mischievous grin that puts me inside a moment when we were still dating. She has these little hairs that curl right below her ear that make me think of the first morning I woke up with her next to me.

There are so many layers now; such a deep, wonderful complexity about how she makes me feel when I see her. She’s like a succulent dish that has been prepared by a master chef. Or a rich, velvety wine with that perfect blend of buttery smoothness and dry finish. She is my heart, my love, truly my better half. She helps me to be the kind of man and father I’ve always wanted to be.

Am I attracted to her? Oh, god, yes. No matter how we look now, I see her across all the years as a kind of gestalt vision of who she is and what she means to me. She is the most interesting and attractive person I’ve ever had in my life. No one else even comes a close second.

I have listened to Nothing by Passion at least 10 times in a row today….. I am listening to it as I type, haha. It’s so goood. 

Had a good practice today! Had good convo with Allie too (: We talked about how much we both love Tahoe, hehe. Mark asked me if I am going to the worship conference… I really want to since Allie is going for the first time and I don’t want her to be the only girl… But it is the morning that Tim leaves and Tina will be here. But I am hoping that she’ll spend the morning-evening with her family and I’ll come back from the conference and spend time with the homies! We shall see….. After practice my brother and I went to Target and the Cambodian store to buy some groceries. Things are finally getting back to normal between us and I couldn’t be more happy (: He’s coming to my birthday dinner too! 

Hmmm. I had more to talk about….. 

Tim got some of his wisdom teeth pulled today and I asked him how he was feeling and he replied, “I”m feeling happy of myself!!!” Idk if he was forreal or not, but I think it’s still pretty funny, haha. What does that even mean?

The end.
