Falling in Love

Canon Beach, Oregon 2003

Mr. H and Rufus. I had forgotten to pack any toys for Rufus, so Mr. H took one of his socks and filled it with sand. It amazes me sometimes how the simplest things make the best toys. The $40 toy for your toddler is no match for the box it came in.

Rufus and Aaron at Canon Beach

It was on this weekend that I realized that I was in love with the man who was to become my husband (although I didn't know about the husband part yet). I knew that this was something real, something special, and something that was going to last a very long time.

I bet chewing on a sand sock is a great way to remove tartar buildup.

What a smart idea and you are so right about the box a toy came in being better than the toy itself yet we keep buying them.

That is AWESOME! I remember when I first realized I was in love with my husband. We were at a baseball game and I opened the door of his BRAND NEW car into another car denting it. He jumped out and left the car running and his doors locked. Locked doors, running car and dented door and instead of being mad, he kissed me while I tried to apologize.

Shelle said...

Oh my, you've commented on the same blogs that I have this morning. You've also had some of my exact same thoughts which is scary seeing as how we don't know eachother. Looking forward to seeing you some more on blogger. I love your post. I recall the exact moment I fell in love with my husband too. It was like I had been hit with a bat and my life put on fast forward. I couldn't shake a picture in my head of he together just like that day but 50 years from then. Who knows, maybe it was just because we were walking through an antique store at the time. Hahahahaha!

Molly said...

Very very sweet. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Lex the mom said...

This is a wonderful post! It's amazing the simple things that mean so much.

Rufus looks like a spunky pup! I bet he's fun to have around! Great photo!

Z's Mom said...

What a great pic and a great story. Men always look sexier playing with a dog too....or a kid...why is that?

Z said...

I agree with everyone else! So wonderful!

LiteralDan said...

That's a nice story, and it's so true. Dogs and kids are so alike in a surprising number of ways.
