aw this is so cute! i didn’t know there was a want for that but i’ll be sure to post pictures soon! i love our little house and all our memories here so far and all the ones we’ve yet to make. it’s a great little home.
bronwyns asleep beside me and I keep thinking about how fragile it all is. I love her so much and she’s right here warm and wild and calm and sweet next to me and shes breathing so deeply and I keep leaning over and whispering I love yous in her ear. I can’t believe how it all ends up that I’m here and she’s here and we started our story over 5 years ago. I keep thinking I love her so much I keep thinking she deserves more I keep thinking life is crazy and I love her and something is right and I never want to lose this.
what i love about us is that i would have been fine if you weren’t there tonight but i’m beyond happy that you were. what i love about us is that people look at us on the go train because i’m giggling so much playing knuckles. what i love about us is that we go from serious conversation to playing a game about multiplication and back seamlessly and naturally. what i love about us is that life is sweeter by your side.
I want the cottage. I want the green grass and the tomato plants. I want the peace in you; the front porch rocking chair lullaby; our cricket legs rubbing together under the covers. We can’t have it all. I know that, but humor me. We can’t have it all, but we can have most of it.
you’re too kind, my friend. i’m so glad that i can inspire you to grab life, even just a little. tonight i’m going out with my friends to an art show all through our city n i’m wearing a new dress that i bought with heather n i’ll think of you and hope you’re doing something wonderful too.
at school, in class, in a dream sometime somewhere, in my heart of hearts, as a child, as a wild creature, in a bar, on a subway, in the only way i knew how // because my chest hurts when i look at her and watching her drink cranberry juice is my favourite thing and i wish for only good and glorious things to come to her and i hope she wins when we play settlers of catan because she’s wonderful and deserves it and i want to buy her dumb necklaces and her favourite cheese and i don’t want her to have to worry about money and i want her to have a gym in our house and i want her to sleep nicely every night and never have a cold but when she does i want to be the one to get her a damp face cloth and because i want her to have a light heart and a million dreams and a million trips to a million places and because her arms around me feel like the answer to a question that has been on the tip of my tongue for my whole life.
