Philip and I cleaned the house today from 8:00 - 4:00 p.m. solid. We did not get to our bedroom but the rest of the house is spotless. We had some friends coming over for dinner around 4:00 p.m. (can you tell we have kids?) so at 3:30 I threw myself in the shower to get ready. I could hear Philip finishing wiping down the bathroom counter on the other side of the shower curtain and I was thinking about how grateful I was for all his help. So I told him so.
Honey, thank you for all your help today. I couldn't have done it without you.
And thank you for shaving your legs for me.
As we near our eighth anniversary this July, romantic interludes like this still make my heart flutter.
