out of the blue
a few moments
of pure pleasure
the two of us
our give away smiles

Ah yes...I always have a give away smile after moments like that. :) Some emotions are just too beautiful to contain, so I don't even try!!! Love this so much...and right now while my husband is away all week and only home on the weekends, I find myself treasuring those "few moments" even more.

His grin says it all-
autumn morning spent speaking
our secret language

Thank you both for your comments.
It's the 'out of the blue' element that really speaks to me, so much more a gift somehow when it's not planned. At least that's how it feels!
