I treasure those moments in our relationship when we seem to rediscover each other and are reminded why we fell in love in the first place. I don't really feel those moments can be consciously created, but the seeds can certainly be planted. He's been showing me how supportive and generous he can be, and it's time for some payback. He's got a surprise waiting when he gets home.

I know this giddiness won't last forever, but it's an extremely welcome reprieve from stress and complacency.

Excuse me, I'm going to go carve our initials in a park bench.
