135,360 Minutes

By the time we are finally together again on Saturday, we won't have seen or touched each other for 94 days or 2,256 hours or 135,360 minutes. The truth is that we're beyond ready to spend time together.

We speak/text/email/chat every single day, but nothing can compare with touch, scent and sight. Nothing can compare with proximity. Of being able to translate all the words we've shared, into a physical demonstration of love and adoration.

And if being together, loving each other, for six whole days isn't enough, we are going to have just such a fabulous time on our travels.

It can't come soon enough. And it won't last long enough.

Our panacea for these never-long-enough visits with each other is that one day in the not too distant future, there will be no more painful, heart-wrenching goodbyes. The day is coming when we will say 'hello' to the rest of our lives. A day which will be marked by an endless embrace. That will be the day when we take a step over the threshhold into our forever, together, and it's just a short distance down the road.

It, too, can't come soon enough.

Have a great time, and safe travels Fiona, I'll be thinking about you both. Enjoy the Central Cali coast, and dream about next year together.

Fiona and next year you'll be able to have that every single day if you so wish. I love it when a plan comes together ;-)

This is such a beautiful post. If I can feel that kind of love again at some point in my life, I'll consider myself an extremely lucky and successful person. :)
