I Can Draw Stick People

Do you know something I love about my husband? His artistic ability. These skills don't get exercised as regularly as I'd like to see. But every time he sits down to sketch or doodle, I'm impressed.

Back in the day when we were dating and he was "putting some moves on", he wooed me with little drawings, notes with sketches, and even once a watercolor. As our relationship progressed and then turned into marriage, well the doodle love notes diminished. (Kind of just the way it goes, isn't it?) :)

So, last night when I finally got home after being gone for nearly 12 hours, I was surprised by an envelope left at the door for me. A love-note sketch accompanied by a mixed CD. Jeremy was gone at an appointment, leaving me alone to soak in my gift. I popped in the CD, sat in our big comfy chair and read my note. Tears pooled in the corner of my eyes, a few trailing down my cheeks. I felt so loved.

I am always impressed that even in Jeremy's quick sketches, he conveys so much detail. I wish I could give you a glimpse of his talent, but we don't have a scanner. So, you'll just have to believe me when I tell you that my husband is artistically talented.

I love this, Steph. It's true that while dating, we pull out all the stops and try so hard...and then. It's not that the love is less, it's actually more. But the little things don't always carry over as much as we'd hope. I love that he left you a mix CD and love note. Awesome, J. well done!
