Thomas asked today what therapeutic means. Told him a shortened version something like … It’s something that’s good for you and makes you feel good. A few minutes later he told me that I was therapeutic for him …. He just melts my heart! YUM! xoxo

Today’s Blissful Moment …
Thomas and I were sitting next to each other on the couch and reading. He said, “I like squishing up against you.” …
I like me some squishing with those I love too!!!
Reading together/Squishing together = YUM! xoxo

We had an intimate, masked, socially distanced celebration with The Romano Duo and Robert, graced with absolutely divine vegan cupcakes from Batch Cupcakery. I took my selfie after everyone left! Ha!
Thomas received some great gifts!
A basketball, volleyball (so we can use the great courts here), a shirt, a hoodie, a desk chair, a homemade card from Lillian, a turntable, an album, and a photo book of our date days over the past year. I still need to make a homemade card or poem for him.

Check out the beautiful “flower” Thomas got for me (from our backyard). Love it when a handsome, sweet man gets me flower(s)! HA!
