So this morning, after the kids slept the whole night through (yay! we're FINALLY getting back on track post holiday), I put them in the living room to play while I made heart shaped pancakes. I don't have a copy of Graceland anymore...in all my moving it most have gotten lost. But I found a cd I made for Joe when we first started dating, full of happy little love songs and I felt like that would be just as nice as ol' Paul singing to us as we ate.
And happy it was.
We love pancakes.
I should've cleaned my stove before taking that first picture. Can you handle the reality???
As I mentioned, we listened to an old mixed cd I'd made for Joe. I wanted to share one of the songs on it because it's just so perfect. I didn't know how perfect it was until I was married and the kids came along and all that "marriage is work" stuff started to make more sense. While this song is sung from a guys perspective, I feel like it can apply to anyone.
I wish I could do better by
Cause that's what you deserve
You sacrafice so much of
In order for this to work
While I'm off chasing my own dreams
Sailin' around the world
Please know that I'm yours to keep
My beautiful girl
Goosebumps. Like, everytime.
I love you, Joe.
