Favorites, Hawai'i

giving thanks for my peach

1 December 2013
I am so so grateful to have my favorite boy around ALL THE TIME. It’s dreamy. It’s so good and happy and full of adventure and fun. I am so glad with how life works itself out eventually.
I’m grateful that this boy is such a good cuddler and that he knows and understands me and is always seeking to help me with whatever I need. I’m grateful I’m a happy girl and that I have this little peach in my life. :) I’m grateful he’s an Alaskan too. And that he has a beard.
I’m grateful that he kills the centipedes and the cane spiders and the cockroaches. I’m grateful that he laughs with me when I crash my bike. I’m grateful he accepts my super nintendo desires. I’m grateful he can work hard and also bum around. I’m grateful he makes a point to always go running, and for his desires to be good and healthy. I’m grateful for the sweet movies we watch together.
This lovely long weekend we watched the Swiss Family Robinson and the Brave Little Toaster. Dreamy I tell you. And there’s lots more great films on the list.
I’m grateful he always makes sure we pray together every night. I’m grateful he stuck around for my year of hot and cold and wishy-washiness. I’m grateful he makes an effort to learn portuguese. I’m grateful he got me a great ring and asked me to marry him, and that he found my great wedding dress too. He’s a peach this Christopher boy is. And I am very grateful for him.

Thanksgiving day started with some pumpkin pie for breakfast. Beaut.
We has some Thanksgiving food later in the afternoon, thanks to some Hawaiian friends. I played some Christmas hymns on the piano and Chris and I talked with our grandparents.
When we came home we hopped on our bikes and went for a cruise.
I love these spontaneous little adventures. How great.
