"You ought to give me wedding rings"

One of the most delightful parts of my marriage is the flow. There is our base that is always there--he is always my closest friend and the person I most like to stay up too late at night with because we were busy yammering at one another. We definitely have lived in our own little insulated bubble and I never tire of it. But then there are the times when the tide flows back in and I am desperately and deliriously in love with the man.

I was listening to the Robin Pecknold concert and the song "The Book of Love" came on and I broke down and started crying and just feeling that tide rush back in.

It isn't surprising. It is starting to feel like Fall and my best memories of Awesome Husband are braided throughout Fall. We rediscovered one another in fall. We have had some of our most memorable trips and together times in the fall. We got engaged in fall. We got married in the fall. Fall has always been my favorite time of year so it helps that my favorite person is wrapped up in my favorite time.

Now that I think about it, we got engaged almost exactly 3 years ago. No wonder the song touched me so hard.
