While I was cleaning up...

I was going through one of those places where "stuff" goes. You know those places. I'm sure you have those places. I have LOTS of those places. Too many...

Today I came across something Jean-Paul gave me when we were dating. I'm posting it on here for a few reasons. 1) To share. It makes me smile. It might make you smile, too.  2) So it will be kept in another place, just in case the original is ever lost.  3) So it can be a part of the yearly blog books I'm making, and therefore be read years later by my kids.  4) So I remember what that new relationship felt like, and maybe, just maybe, recapture some of that and help it work its way back into our lives. 'Cuz, really, we're more like roommates with kids at this point than husband and wife. Typing this out is an exercise in remembering the important stuff.
