Madly in Love Monday

I am madly in love this Monday because my Engineer holds my hand. 

This is something he has done ever since we began dating.  If we are walking, he will reach back his hand for me to hold.  Or if we are in the car, he will lay his arm on the center console with his palm up as an indicator for me to grab hold. 

That is such a simple gesture, yet, it reminds me of many more complex feelings. 

It reminds me that we have grown and will continue to grow together, interlaced like our fingers.

It reminds me that we are in this life - this love - together; supporting one another.

It reminds me that we are two bodies joined as one flesh when are palms are pressed against each other.   

And it reminds me that no matter how old this girl gets, it still gives her butterflies when her guy reaches for her hand.

Thank you EM for still wanting to hold my hand...and giving me butterflies.  :)
1-4-3 EM!
