The luckiest girl in the world

I was driving down South Lamar earlier this week when I spotted this sitting on the side of the road at a consignment shop



Instantly in love with it I called home and left a message for myself on the answering machine to call and find out how much it was being sold for.

I called the next morning and got the price...let's just say it was too much for an impulsive flight of fancy purchase, but the adventure of it all and just the possibility of having a telephone booth in my house was fun enough for me.

I sent it to Hero Husband in an email..."look at what I found. Wouldn't it look great in our living room?" He humored me and nodded as I gushed to my friends about it. You would be surprised who else thinks a phone booth in your living room is a cool idea.

I came home today tired from work but looking forward to a nice dinner with my favorite guy celebrating the 10th anniversary of the day he was late to our wedding (sorry honey! it is the only time you have ever been late and I can't help but remind you every now and then). Hero Husband and Super Son were stuck in traffic on their way home so Miss Thing and I began unloading the cargo of the day and kicking off our shoes. I came around the corner into the living room and this is what I found.



He wasn't home to see my reaction but suffice it to say I laughed, jumped up and down and teared up.

I am the luckiest girl in the world. Not because I came home to find a red phone booth in my living room (even though that is pretty awesome), but because the man that I wake up next to and walk side by side with each day, the partner that chooses me every day, the man I love... he knows my heart and delights in it. He loves the way I smile and he makes me laugh so he can see it more often.

We screw it up sometimes and we hurt each other but I know that hurting is a part of being known. He truly sees me and I trust that because we love each other we find a way to make it right when we do.

I am the luckiest girl in the world.
