the boy I fell in love with

This is Chas' high school senior portrait. 
I snagged it from his grandma's house after she passed away. (That sounds worse than it actually was.)

Now this glorious photo sits on my bedside dresser, facing the bed so I can see it every morning and night. 

I love this pic because it reminds me of the teenage Chas I first fell in love with, back when he was too quiet to ever really talk to me and I was too shy (around him) to ever really talk to him either. 

Now we're married with a little cryings on the way. 

And, on snowy mornings like today, he goes out to get us McDonald's breakfast...which we eat in bed.
Thanks, life, for being so awesome.

I love remembering when my husband and I first started out. And I also love those little routines that seem so simple but mean so much. On Sunday's my husband will run out and get coffees and bagels. I love it.
Have a great weekend :)

Holy crap! I feel like I just read about myself.. My hubby and I have known each other since we were 10. We liked each other, but were deathly afraid to talk to each other! We've been married for almost 4 years now :)
CUTE!!
