The 48-Hour Hug

Well, we got the news.
Daniel leaves Sunday at 11:30 am.

Needless to say, until then I will not be answering emails,
not be doing things that are "all about me,"
and not wasting a second on things that aren't involving him...
well, until I'm off work today, anyway.

Plus, I feel like I haven't had a chance to spend any time with Daniel this week.
Last week Daniel suffered through a horrible cold—this week I got it,
and Wednesday and Thursday were spent with me battling sickness while at work.
A non-stop 2-day fever, chills, sore throat and incredibly stuffy/runny nose.

But Daniel was a gem.
As soon as I got home each day,
he rubbed my back, let me fall asleep in his lap while he cradled my head,
brought me medicine and tucked me into my bed last night.
It was the sweetest thing.

Today I feel 76% better, and I'm ready to enjoy our last weekend together.
I know the 6-weeks he will be gone isn't a long time,
but amidst wedding planning and missing the guy I love,
it will feel like a long time.

Here's to 48-hours of snuggling, packing, holding hands, and nose-kisses.

Bless your heart. Six weeks isn't a long time when you're together, but it's forever to be apart.

You will get through and will be that much more certain that he is the exact man you should marry this december.

Sending you happy wishes from the Pacific Northwest...
