Blowing bubbles with anyone under three feet.
A full refrigerator.
Notes on the bathroom mirror that end with ‘I love you’.
A cordless mouse (yeah!)
Kisses of all kinds.
Hugs hello and goodbye and just for the sake of hugging.
Juggling plastic Easter eggs.
Feeling adopted into a family.
Arms sneaking around your shoulders to squeeze, and lips pressed to your crown.
Waking up beside someone you love.
…Kissing them goodbye in the morning, then thinking about that kiss the whole ride to work – causing a huge, idiot grin that sticks most of the morning.
…The looks on people’s faces when you flash that idiot grin to the air, then catch their eye and laugh.
The warmth of a loving union; its comfort, thrill, and quietness.
…The realization that you are IN one, and for a very, very long time.
