By in love she meant the acuteness of the heart at the sudden sight of a particular person or the way over a couple of years of interested friendship one is suddenly stunned by the lungs’ longing for more and more breath in the presence of that friend." -Grace Paley

I remember one weekend I came home after scrapbooking with Shawn’s mom, sister, aunt and cousins.  A girl weekend.  He met me at the door and said, "I couldn’t wait for you to get back.  I feel like I am back in highschool.  I can’t believe after all this time I still get butterflies in my stomach waiting to see you."

I loved that our relationship kept getting better.  Not stagnant.  Not ordinary.  Not ignored.   

Anticipation keeps love alive.  I love remembering times of anticipation.
