• Anxiety,  Love

    I just want to be home alone with you…

    Michael and I rarely go out. We’re not big on crowds, we like cooking at home and we honestly just love our alone time together.

    Give your loved ones some extra time and attention today; they’re not going to be around forever.

     

    Now that I’ve made you all nice and sad, have a great Hump Day!

    -T. E. Hulme, 1908

    It’s all fun and games until you discover your heart is all mushy…. Happy Thursday everyone!
    I got up at 5:15 this morning (new record!), stumbled into the kitchen to get some coffee and almost
