Day 149

sparkly
Once long ago,
I threw this back at you.
I broke both of
our hearts that day.
Now years later
we are still rebuilding
the trust in each other.
But it gets easier
every day to allow
my heart to love you.
And to accept that
you love me as well.

Himher
Six years ago
two people
joined their lives
to create one.
They have been
through so much
a never ending
roller coaster of
emotion
and love
and separation
and fear
and longing.
Every year
it gets better
they grow
together
and become closer
to that union
they promised
to be so long ago.

beer mojito
Yuck.
I wish
I could like
beer.
It seems
such a social
beverage.
I am
half German
but beer and I?
We are not friends.

Nopalitos salad
I could eat this
stuff every day.
It is just that good.

Daddy and his girls
A visit to the
Desert Botanical Gardens
with Daddy
was much more
fun than with
just Mommy.

Air Force One
An abnormal sight in the Valley of the Sun.
Waiting for our Soldier
His flight was late
and those were
the longest
twenty minutes
ever.

Give me the tickets!
She played a few games
and won a ton of tickets
and for her prize,
she picked a velvet coloring page.
(Please excuse the unfinished scarf.
I had been knitting it while
she played, and was only testing
to see how long it was on her.)
