This picture of Bill was taken while we were driving out to the west coast to get married. I like it for several reasons. He still has the goatee, and I love whiskers (he had to shave it off for the oilfield job but now has a mustache) you can see just how insanely long his eyelashes are, and you can see the shape of his Irish Potato Head, lol.
You know, one of the most intimate things we do started when we first began dating. If I am laying on a couch or a bed he'll crawl up the length of my body and lay his head on my breasts to listen to my heart beat. I always run the palms of my hands over the back of his head, his hair is always so short and soft. When he was overseas I missed that so much - even today when I feel the back of his head, it makes me remember the longing. *sigh* He always tells his mom that his head is that way because she left him laying in his crib too long, just to get a rise out of her, lol.
What's so cute about it is that they're from an area of Newfoundland called The Irish Loop, and they both have Newfoundland accents with a heavy Irish brogue.
Damn, I miss him. I haven't seen him since Sunday night and he might not make it home tonight because they're moving equipment from one oilrig site to another, and the engineer is behind schedule. I guess it's good to miss each other from time to time.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
