Because I want to remember

John and I have had the best few days.
And I don't want to forget.

Friday night, I was feeling overwhelmed with the number of things left to accomplish.
I wanted to do them all, but didn't feel like there was enough time.
And J came to the rescue with a pen, paper, and a little encouragement.
We made a list of all the things I was thinking about,
and he helped me accomplish them, one by one.

we mailed our Christmas cards,
went out to breakfast,
cleaned out all our food in the kitchen,
and laughed a lot during that (J found all kinds of randomness I buy :)),
made a target list and conquered it,
planned our items to bake,
visited my family and welcomed my sister home
(and J put on his brillant hat to rescue mom's lost emails),
got Christmas stuff together,
lit a candle,
made muffins for our YMC Christmas party
as well as tons of sugar cookie dough yet to be baked,
cuddled and enjoyed the rain.

we got up early and went to church (gosh I love Sunday church)
and our YMC Christmas party.
we did lots of laundry,
planned meals for the week
and then conquered Vons,
but not before Mexican food next door.
we talked about our dreams,
played with our puppies and took a few rain walks,
laughed, hugged, and enjoyed each other's company.

while I did some last minute Christmas shopping after work,
J fed the animals (twice!) and braved the storm to take them for walks.
We made dinner together while chatting
(mmm... wheat pasta with white sauce and asparagus),
and then J made us homemade vanilla lattes.
we sat in the living room together,
listening to Christmas music and worship music,
continuing to plan our future (we like planning)
while getting some more Christmas stuff together.

I love my husband.
I love to be with him.
I love when he does things with me and for me - the little things.
And I love love love when he smiles while doing it. :)

Thank you, honey, for this weekend.
I'm so glad I get to be your wife.
