D left this morning for an overnight work trip. She has done a few of these in the past and I always miss her like crazy. The only thing I was kind of looking forward to was having the house completely to myself, but Big D ruined that by coming home 2 days early for spring break 😦 Oh well.
I always leave the house at the same time every morning. This morning I lingered for a few minutes. Big D came down and was getting himself some breakfast when D and I were trying to say goodbye. We kissed and hugged and kissed some more and I told her to be safe and good. Then I finished getting my stuff together and I kissed her again.
I looked at her and said: Let me take in this face of yours since I won’t see it for a while.
Big D piped up: Geez! What is this? Your honeymoon? You’re going to see each other tomorrow night!
Me: We don’t ever spend the night away from each other. And yes, it’s our honeymoon. Every day is.
D walked out of the room waving and ran up the stairs to finish getting ready.
Me: See this? (referring to D running upstairs before I even left) Honeymoon.
Big D: Looks like she’s running away from the honeymoon suite to me! (He’s such a smartass!)
I do feel like each day is our honeymoon. I am so in love with this woman that even when she only leaves me for a few hours (let alone overnight) I miss her so much! She is my best friend, my world. D – I hope you have a great time today and tomorrow! Just don’t forget to come back home to your wife 😉
