Sam I Am

You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." Dr. Seuss

Found this quote the other day on a blog. How true it is. When the sweet husband and I first started dating we would stay up all night. We would talk and kiss and talk and kiss until the early hours of the morning. There was just so much stuff to say. We had so much catching up to do. We didn't want to spend any of our time asleep. What a waste. We would eventually fall asleep. Then about 5am he would get up off the couch and we would both rub our aching necks and he would drive home and I would go crawl in my bed with my then 3 year old son.

I remember those late nights where we laughed and learned all about each other. The night we watched the meteor shower in the hot tub. The night when my little boy had a night terror and he worried right along with me and told me what a good mom I was. The night I told him about my divorce and what exactly he was getting in to and he smiled and told me he wasn't going anywhere. Those were the nights we fell in love.

Dr. Seuss was right...and not just about the lorax.


  1. Yuck- now I have to go get an insulin shot.

  2. It's a sweet life, Jen.

    CK: Come liked it. :)

  3. so sweet. its been a long time but i do remember those nights. with us it was usually spent on the phone while he drove to and from seattle. seems like worlds ago, i should try to reflect on those early days more often because the problem with real life is its just so daily :) thanks for the reminder

  4. Kel: I know, right. I've been trying to recreate those nights where we talk and giggle...but we are old and sleepy so that doesn't work. hee hee
