How Much Happy?

24 Jan

How much happy can i contain??

Like a big soup pot of happiness, we just keep throwing more stuff into the mix, and it just gets better.  Last night, his birthday dinner with his kids was lots of fun.

Sitting next to each other in the booth holding hands, or with His hand on my thigh, or His arm around me…  Well, when He wasn’t actually eating that is.  

i like that.  The physical contact we have, even when it’s casual, not even sexual, not even kinky, just there.  Solid.  When we walk, He takes my hand, and it is just right.  Not too tight, not too loose, just right.

So He liked what i got Him, which was not anything exciting, just a couple of gift certificates, but they had meaning to us.  One, of course, was to Starbucks ~ had to be, right?  The other was to the restaurant where we had our first date, which is a favorite of His.  

i wrote a birthday poem to go with them, with little illustrations, and i think He got a kick out of that.  

And i gave him a future gift.  It’s the book of His choice, something He’d like for us to read together.  It can be kinky or not.  We might find it among the vendors at Winter Wickedness, or shop at a bookstore, or look on Amazon.  Whatever book He’d like for us to share.

But here’s the cool part ~ for me.  He likes this stuff.  Really.  The meaning of it all, not just the gift.  i did little clip art stuff in the card i made ~ and He liked that, not just in a humoring me, o, isn’t aisha cute way, but for real.  

i don’t know how to explain it.  Like ~

~ like it meant what i wanted it to mean.  Like He gets it.  Gets me.

And He liked the book idea.  It surprised Him; it intrigued Him.  It pleased Him.

After dinner, we came back to my house, sat in the kitchen and talked.  Planning for Winter Wickedness.  Talking about our kids.  Just talking. 

Just happy.

    The pleasant satisfying feeling of pure contentment radiates in every word. Very few people deserve it more than you. May it last forever as a constant undercurrent of your journey together.
