all you need is loooove

love is all you need

the holidays are fast approaching and p and i have done ALMOST all our christmas shopping. we've got one more gift card to buy and one gift card to send to his sister. we've spent hundreds of dollars (that we budgeted for! go us!) and haven't yet spent a dime on eachother. why? well...because.

you see, both of us look forward to christmas...we look forward to going to my parents house for the giant celebration of presents and food and love and we look forward to going to his house for the post-christmas relaxation, the gift exchange and the walks in the park by his house....but with all that, comes the realization that we don't really do christmas by ourselves until January. So p finally asked me today what I wanted for christmas when we finally get to celebrate after the new year....and my immediate answer was PHOTOSHOP. I covet photoshop. I lust for photoshop. I WANT it BAD.

but the thing is...he could get me nothing and my christmas with him would be perfect. he doesn't need to take me to dinner...to do anything special. because all I need...is love. and I know so well that i have that. I have his love. what greater gift could he give me?

9 days out of 10 i'm a normal rational human being...but that 10th day, damn can i be a basketcase. my anxiety will rear up and kick me in the butt...and of course i take it out on him. my worrying about things that might never happen make me fuss and fret and snarl...i can be bossy and i can be demanding and moody and in general just a sasspants. and...he still loves me.

i can have total meltdowns over my lack of confidence and fears and sulk and cry..and he still loves me.

i can be jealous and a jerk....and he loves me because of it.

that, my husband, is all i ever need from you.

i am SUCH a lucky girl.

so...just to keep this from being nauseatingly sappy.....i still reaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllly WANT photoshop. hint hint husband...hint hint!

blessings: this face is worth all 3

awwwwww! this was so sweet.

here's to you getting p-shop. are there after-christmas deals on it? cause that's an excellent reason to celebrate with presents in january (if you don't have small kids) ♥

That is sweet! I feel the same way. My hubby and I don't usually exchange gifts. It's just so much better to enjoy the time we have together.....but, Photoshop would be nice;0)

Great post. I feel the same way I don't need anything just as long as TNT and I are together.

I have photoshop yet I still use photoscape 95% of the time. Plus photoscape was free!

I hope you get your Photoshop, pottamus. I'll send L'elephant wishes for you to get it!

Stopping by from SITS.... This post made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. What an amazing way to remember the things that REALLY matter during what can be such a crazy time of year. It's not about the presents and Photoshop (regardless of how much we may lust for it!).... It's about the people we love and who love us. Sounds like you've got yourself an amazing husband, good for you!!! Looking forward to checking your blog out more!

How sweet that you love your husband so much! You usually hear people complaining about their spouses so it's nice to hear someone talking about the love.

When you get Pshop, I don't think you will have to do a thing to that handsome face.

Merry Christmas:))

Just one more reason why this is the most wonderful time of the year...SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!

That's a Wrap
