My husband and I have been together for 12 years now – married for seven years this summer and I can still remember the sweet new love from the beginning of our relationship when I was 17 years old. We were inseparable. It was cute high school love that has lasted, grew and blossomed.
When it was all new and cute we used to write love letters to each other while at school. I still have most of them and reading them is both sweet and hilarious. So young! Romance was alive when we were in college and planning our wedding. Since we were both in full time school and working two jobs each we didnt get to see each other too much even though we were living together through college. It was a sweet way to let each other know that we were thinking of each other.
Fast forward to now. 7 years of marriage, 3 kids and even more busy then we were in college it can be challenging to find time to just hang out with just us two. Being with anyone for a length of time you need to work on ways to keep the romance alive, stay connected and in love.
Most of the time if we are both at home you will find us each on our separate computers working away. We get a lot of our work done when the kids are in bed so we will sit in the same room, turn on the tv and create or type away on our computers. Very little romance involved there, right?
Last night I was sitting in the livingroom catching up on emails and my husband was on the other end of the room working on his computer. I get a little notification in the bottom right side of my computer from dropbox telling me a new file has been added to the folder my husband and I share. How sweet i thought. He’s left me a little something – he’s thinking of me.
I open it up and this is what it is:
He made it just for me. Oh, how different our love letters are now.
