Some Enchanted Evening....

Recently I was standing quietly, in a crowded room. I happened to look out across the tops of heads, as I felt some sort of magnetic pull to the opposite side of the room. My eyes scanned the laughing, chattering faces until they came to rest on the one I'd been inadvertently seeking.

Standing tall, and tanned in a red shirt was a devastatingly handsome man. He was casually leaning against the wall with his arms crossed. I'm ashamed to admit that I'm a sucker for biceps, so they grabbed my attention. He looked relaxed, and appeared to be having a good time. His eyes met mine, and even at that distance, I could see a smile curving up the outer corners of his mouth. A nice, slow, smile that made my breath catch. I knew he was looking at me, because I'd just turned around and looked, to make sure. I was standing apart from a larger group, off on my own, and there was no one else looking back at him besides me. I felt like a bit of an idiot, but it's not every day that a gorgeous guy grins my way. So, I smiled back. Then he raised one eyebrow. Now I was blushing like a schoolgirl. I just stood there looking his way, and this guy never took his eyes off my face.

All of a sudden, my children came running up to me, clamoring for attention with books, and papers, and shouts of, "Look what I made Mommy!!" And when I looked back across the room, he was gone. I felt a little pang of disappointment, until a warm voice nuzzled my ear, and my husband said, "Hey, I really like your shirt... I was admiring the way you looked in it, from over across the room. Very cute."

And then I hired a babysitter for the rest of the week.

Just kidding.

Then we went home to real life.

Oh, baby, now. I think I need a cigarette.

Kelli said...

Ahhh, what a moment. We need those every now and then.

LeAnna said...

How cute! We definitely all need those moments. Even if they're in the kitchen. :) You asked about the watermark on my pictures, and that's all it is. I try to make sure I have it on my personal pics, especially of my son. It hopefully would help keep anyone from taking and editing them.

Leigh Ann said...

Aww, thanks for sharing. Isn't it amazing that even across a crowded room we can feel the love of our husband! What a blessing to have a marriage like that. It makes real life so much more fun!

You two are SO cute!! You should write prescriptions for others.
I'd stand in line to get them. ;)
--take care my friend.

Jenny said...

I'm so glad you still have those moments. Listen, bring your kids over. They can play with my granddaughters. My husband and I still have that "thing" and we consider ourselves fortunate every single day!

And that is the way it should be, I do believe. Cheers to happiness. Cheers to biceps. Cheers to family.

Julie Harward said...

Oh Sasha..that was so cute! I have those moments too and when I do, I think..wow, I'm still attracted to him, I'd pick him all over again!:D

Just a little something from Judy said...

Nicole B. said...

You just have a storytelling knack!! I was a little concerned at one point that it wouldn't be about your husband!! But I think I've learned otherwise by now!!

Jewel said...

Muthering Heights said...

Lissa said...

cute, romantic story! love it!

Katy said...

I love this!!! The picture rocks! It reminds me of a barn dance my husband and I were at a few weeks ago. It was dark out and we couldn't really see who we were looking at, but I was intensely drawn to this man. I try not to take a second look at other men, but I just could not help it. He kept coming closer and closer and I realized it was my hubby! We are blessed women!

Thats what got you the 2 kids in the first place. :)
