Peanut butter jelly time!
His strong hand rested gently on my back as he guided us through the mall. We had just finished lunch at HuHot and were killing time since it was a rainy day. Pausing at the directory to scan the list of shops, he put a palm to the glass to cover the name of a store. I looked up at him while he gave me an I-have-no-idea-why-you’re-looking-at-me-like-that look, laughed, and told him I’d already read what it said: Kay Jewelers. He rolled his eyes, put his arm around me, and we walked away. I later tried to nonchalantly guide him into that store, but he caught what I was trying to do… :)
I just got back from spending a weekend with Corey. It had been two weeks since I’d seen him last, but it’s funny how nothing is ever different when we’re back together. We just pick up right where we left off. He’s kinda the peanut butter to my jelly. Ya, because jelly and me, we’re both crazy, adventurous, in-yo-face flavor, and Corey, he’s just laid back and simple, like peanut butter. And you can’t have one without the other. Yes, I just compared my relationship to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (which by the way, grape jelly is the only way to go!).
It’s always exciting when Corey gets internships in random parts of the country. That means I get to travel and see new places! This summer, he’s in Waterloo, IA, and let me tell you, it rains A LOT there during the spring. There’s a huge water park we wanted to go to, but it rained every single day I was there. Ridiculous. So instead, I learned how to play the slots at a casino, how to play poker and blackjack (I didn’t play those at the casino, though!), and learned (like always) how hard it is to get Corey to take pictures with me! :)
So, internet friends, I hope your weekend was great. But it’s back to the real world. GASP! I know, but it’s only for 4 more days — then the weekend!
And Corey, thanks for being a great tour guide, restaurant-picker-outer, doctor when I’m sick, and mostly, thanks for being a loving man that puts up with all of my insecurities, fears, and flaws. I’m so glad God brought you into my life!
