too far for my taste

I miss my boyfriend. I miss him a lot.

{^On his Mom's beautiful property in his hometown.}
^Italian cooking course
He's in NYC this week for work and while I've been sending him pictures of my chicken & bean dinner I made... he's been replying with images of him at rooftop parties in the building adjacent to the Empire State Building. Ha, kinda takes the wind out of my "yummy, 5-minute, all from the pantry" dinner I made.

{^Hitting the town }
But really, this is his first business trip since we have lived in the new place. And having him so far away when he's my roommate is much different than when we dwelled separately.



{^HAHA, he's SO unamused by my dancing in the moonlight! }

I miss him asking about my day (he always does). I miss him laughing as I tell him how bad all his dirty clothes smell. I miss him coming through the door in the evening and saying "Yes! Being here with you is what I've been looking forward to all day!".

I miss him
making fun of me for my choice in XXL lounge clothes and grumbling when I decide to wax in front of him (the process frightens him to pieces. I'm not sure if it's due to the carafe of hot wax on the counter, the strips of fabric on my face or him reminiscing about the days that he didn't know I did any of that stuff and rather, just appeared done-up for our date.). And, I most miss his outstretched arm, palm up hand and little smile- silently telling me to come sit closer to him on the couch.


{^Urban Hiking the weekend before Christmas }

{^Early morning fishing trip on my Dad's boat at his cabin. }

So for those reasons and a few more:
Please come home soon, roommate!

Oh no when does he get back?
You two are just darling, & I am just putting this out there, when you two get hitched, I am so counting on a invite to the wedding. The black & white photo of you two, is too adorable/funny, hopefully that photo is framed up in the apt.

PS: I want your thighs!

That is adorable!!! He's in NY? We have gorgeous weather here!! He'll be home soon to cringe at your waxing and make fun of your pjs :) LOL Men! Do they really think it doesn't take work to get this way?? lol

Lindsey @ The Hill House said...

You guys are so cute. The sentence about him grumbling over your waxing made me smile; my hubby and I have been married 8 years and I still think it freaks him out to see me with my rejuvenating face mask on. :) I hope your time of missing him when he's gone never changes. Hopefully he won't have to be gone much though! And I also hope you have many more nights of dancing in the moonlight. Reminds me of summer nights out on the boat with the radio going and just living in the moment. Love it!

Sara Louise said...

Aw man! This made me all mushy!!
You two are a gorgeous couple :)
I hope the rest of his time away flies by!

I hope he comes home soon Caitlin... Your chicken and beans dinner sounded really yummy I have to admit :)

Vanessa. said...

Great pictures, you look amazing!

Stevie said...

You two are so cute!

Missing each other is one of my favorite things about living together. Even though we've lived together for 3 years, I miss being away from him even if it's just for a night.

And yeah, living together definitely reveals all that Secret Single Behavior we all try to hide :-)
