Good Night Kisses
A night does not go by without a kiss good night from my best friend. When we were engaged I moved into my sister-in-laws old room. I got a job in Sandy so it was easier moving in than commuting every night back to Ogden. So every night I would get a good night kiss right before we went to bed. After I moved in, our wedding, and up till a few days ago I would get a good night kiss. The storms were so bad a couple weeks ago that Steven had to stay at his parents in South Jordan. We talked while we got ready for bed (thanks to cellular speakerphones ☺). Then it was time for our good night kiss. Needless to say, I didn’t get one. If you know me at all I am a total baby when It comes to things like this. That little good night kiss that so many take for granted means so much to me. It makes me feel safe, loved, and important. That kiss is a great comfort to me. So this also goes without saying but I bawled myself to sleep watching The Little Mermaid.
In the morning when Steven leaves for work he kisses me good bye. He kisses me hugs me and then kisses me again. As he walks out I yell, “Be careful” “I love you” and “have a good day”. I am extremely superstitious and when he stayed at his parents I didn’t get to do this ‘ritual’ of mine. I was totally freaked out and I barely slept. It was miserable.
We are the ‘always together’ couple. We have never been ‘the on-again/off-again’ couple. We rarely fight and we never yell. We talk multiple times during the day and we never run out of things to say to each other. We are so much alike but also so different. He is my everything.
For those of you who thought we were ‘gross in love’ sorry but I really do live in my own fairytale.
