Love

Blush
Quiver
Tenderness

Most days my morning routine of getting ready for the day consists of doing everything quick. quick shower, quick makeup and hair scrunch. I quickly look at myself in the mirror and hate the crows feet around my tired looking eyes. As I apply blush like I'm speed painting, I notice how much better my chin would look if I could only pull up on my chubby cheeks. Scrunching while cursing my frizzy curls... As I am getting older, I am wishing to find more time to s l o w down for leisure pampering. Primping like I used to enjoy in my younger PRE- working-mommy Crazy days. This luxury only seems to happen lately, if I am getting ready for a date night out with my husband. The shower much longer, trying new body oils. Shaving both legs at the SAME time.
Taking time to massage fragrant creams into my skin.. extra massaging for legs, feet, arms, neck.
During this pampering he usually walks into our bedroom and with one sensuous look I read the piercing tenderness and love he feels so deeply for me. Somehow my unruly hair then strikes me as wild and beautiful. My crows feet are ignored as I slowly apply my eye makeup to eyes refreshed. Exhilarated to the way he can make me quiver and truly savor the sensuality of being a woman.

A lovely tribute to a fine relationship...
I love it. A little humor, lots of tenderness and a magnum of love.

oh, very nice! Thank you for sharing this glimpse into your life. Sometimes it takes someone we love to remind us that we are beautiful as we are, no need to worry about crows feet and stuff like that :)

Poignant, albeit almost racy. You little devil you! Love how his loving gaze can turn you into a princess!

You are so fortunate...you have what many dream of!
