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.
