Tangled Up..

Had a share a sweet(/sappy) little story with you all! First off, I love my husband, I've ranted and raved many times about this all before! He is so wonderful. Sometimes he's a butthole and a little cocky but nonetheless I love him! He doesn't express feeling/emotions often but this weekend the sweetest thing happened!

We recently purchased Aaron Lewis' newest album Town Line. We got it because it had one of my husband's favorite songs on it, "Country Boy". I haven't got to hear the whole CD yet-only the one song. So last weekend I was driving (SHOCKER! He ALWAYS drives so its rare to see him in the passenger seat, with me anyways. His philosophy is, 'the man drives-the woman rides'...hahaha. Anyways he was controlling the radio and the Aaron Lewis Cd was in. Now keep in mind this man doesn't love sappy songs, so normally he "skips" past them but he went straight to a slow paced song. I listened to it-it was beautiful! I loved the words and after it was done-the cherry on the Sundae happened.

He looked at me and said "that is exactly how I feel about you". I said-AWE! Of course and "I LOVE YOU!♥" It was just sweet. You had to be there. But so you know why-here is the song:

Be sure and listen! You won't regret it!

hehe. Love his philosophy! hehe! It's that way too, around here, unless he's too sleepy. And wow, what a sweetie! (such a sweet song!) In fact, I was asking Jeremy the other day to start playing more country (he listens to most everything!) because it's summer, and I'm missing home -- country music reminds me of living in the country, when we were young and so much more care-free.... driving down dirt roads, holding hands, windows down, a/c blowing, sun setting, humid, but the whole night is ours.... Oh, I can't wait to move!! Maybe, just maybe, next summer, but shhhh, don't tell anyone!! (lol -- I know I just posted this publicly on the internet...)

wow. sorry for all that rambling. you probably didn't care... :)

So anyway....

:)
