I really hope I’m not the only one that gets this feeling or thought. Have you ever just looked at your significant other? Like really looked. I do that with Hannah. It comes at the most random times. I just look at her and all I can think is “Wow.” I get those butterflies in my stomach. Like the ones when you’re nervous or like you’d get around a crush or on a first date. I know it’s only been five months. But I look at her and I think of how incredibly lucky I am to be sitting across from her, looking at her. I look at her and see an amazing person. A person with a beautiful and inspiring personality. I look at her and see how incredibly gorgeous she is. I look at her how you would look at someone beautiful that you had never seen before. I look at her and my heartbeat picks up and I smile and I have to catch my breath. I think of how lucky I am to be loved by her. I think of the very first time I saw her and how I thought I’d never stand a chance with her, and here I am, sitting across from her, taking this shot and writing these words and I couldn’t be happier. And I realize how madly in love with her I am and I just smile even more. And all these thoughts rush up from just looking at her and all I can say is “Wow!”
This is Baby, or Felix. His real name is Felix, but Hannah and I don’t like the name so we just call him Baby. He’s sweet but he can be a little devil too. Hannah loves the little guy though. We decided to take him outside for a little bit to enjoy the nice weather. He sat there nicely in Hannah’s lap for maybe a minute and then started squirming and trying to escape. She calmed him down and then he proceeded to give her kisses on the nose. It was pretty cute.
I’ve been wanting this book for a while. It’s Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I’ve been wanting this book for a while and I found a very pretty copy of it over the weekend when I went with Hannah to a book store. But I’m a little short on money and it was more than I wanted to pay for it. So I put it back and we kept looking. She bought a few books and then we went on with our day. Later that night as we were sitting by the fire, I noticed her holding this little red book. I asked what it was and she handed me the book, saying she had wanted to surprise me. It was Brave New World, the exact copy I had found earlier that day. Somehow she got it without me seeing it and was able to surprise me with it. It was such a small gift but it made me so happy. A simple gesture, but a very sweet one. And tonight, I opened it up and started to read it, a nice ending to a long day. And it’s nice because now I look at it and not only is it a pretty book, but it reminds me of her and it makes me smile.
