Dear Mr. Melissa Blake:
I’ve had a lot of time to think lately, Sweetpea. Lots of time. It’s amazing what your mind will drift to when you have lots of time on your hands. I’ve been thinking about what I want for us. Now, I’m not talking about material things here. I’m talking about things I want for us as a couple. And being the list lover that I am, I’ve compiled a few of my favorites for you…
I want us to live in the moment
I’ve been struggling with this one lately, and I think we’d be good for each other.
I want us to challenge each other
I never want us to get too comfortable with each other, you know? That could get pretty boring if you ask me. Now be warned that I’ll probably challenge you a lot with my feisty nature. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, Sweetpea.
I want us to be honest. Always.
Honesty is a pretty big thing for me, and dishonesty is most definitely a rule-breaker for me. I can promise I’ll always be truthful with you, and I hope you feel as though you can always be truthful with me.
I want us to smile
You can never smile too much, so let’s have lots of laughs, OK? You know, the loud, raucous kind that make your entire stomach hurt. The kind that leave tears streaming down your face and the kind that make you feel like you don’t have a care in the world. You must be funny because you won my heart, so I can’t wait to laugh with you.
Does this list make sense? Now, I’m not trying to put any pressure on us here. Well, not too much anyway, Sweetpea? Until we meet….
