The Mr. is sweet...

...when he wants to be and since we've been apart more than we've been together since getting married, I think he's been putting in quite an effort.

Before he left for T-38 training in August I made him a lil flip book. This book consisted of note card (1/2 size ones) that I had punched holes in and tied off with a ribbon. I had 1 note card for each day until the end of the year. Each note card had the date and then "I love you because..." and each day has something completely different.

Some are totally random like.. I love you because you like to watch Project Runway with me and I love you because we both love Dr. Pepper. (Yes totally random) Others are I love you because you know everything about me and never judged me, I love you because you're my best friend, and I love you because I know you'll be a wonderful father.

So what has the Mr. recently started doing..... He's crafting haikus and text messaging them to me. They are hilarious and cheesy and I adore them...

I miss him like crazy and can't wait to see him on Thanksgiving. He's meeting me up in Illinois to spend time with my family.

That is so cute! I can't imagine how fun it must be to get those!

It will be great you get to see him again soon. It must be so tough to go that long without seeing each other.
