it's nice having a boy around.


[the oregon coast. august 2009]

a boy that will build you a fire when you're on the beach.

or teach you that gas evaporates way faster out of your tank when you don't have a gas cap and not laugh too hard at you when he realizes you had absolutely no idea. oops.

to bring you a cheeseburger, just the way you like it, when you have class until 7. then won't make too many sarcastic comments while you and your roommates watch the bachelor.

who tells you in a very kind way that you're not allowed to eat any more peanut m&m's because you said you wanted to eat less sugar.

to give you a piggyback ride across the ice-covered grass before you get to the stairs.

and tells his friends to try the bacon-wrapped chicken you brought to their house to watch the super bowl.

a boy that will stay up much later than he wanted to play card games, just because he knows you want to.

or picks you up from campus because you've been there all day studying for midterms, even if it means driving 20 minutes just to see you for an hour.

and when you tell him to pick the drink he wants in the burger king drive thru, he orders a diet coke. because he knows that's what you would choose. even though he thinks it's disgusting.

yes. i certainly like having this boy around.

edited: he even reads my blog and tells me when i accidentally use a double negative in my post so i can fix it.

2 left some love.:

It's the little things, isn't it? That makes "the one" so special. I totally get it. He sounds like a keeper. :)

I'm so excited for you. He sounds like a great guy! We are still living in Utah but I might be heading home a few weeks after the baby is born. We'll see :) I would love it if you could do a newborn shoot sometime. We'll definitely have to figure something out.
