When I was a kid growing up in our family home my Dad would make my Mum a coffee and toast with jam every morning like clockwork. It would always be jam, unless it was a weekend. Then it would be an egg on toast and a cup (bowl) of Moccona coffee with no sugars and two teaspoons of coffee. Now a few years later, my Jonny does the same thing for me. I realized this morning as I woke up at 5am (again) to the smell of coffee next to my bed (the two alarms did nothing but coffee will do the trick) that Jonny does what my Dad did. He wakes up at 5am even though he doesn't have to leave the house till 830; to make me my coffee and make sure I wake up and don't snooze all my alarms. My Dad used to do the same thing with my mum, she was a midwife and she would always be waking up at atrocious times of the night to go to a delivery, or coming home at 3am, and my Dad would never complain. It's one of the reasons that I knew my Dad loved my Mum, and it's one of the reasons that I know Jonny loves me.
Right now we're sitting here on the couch sipping hot chocolates and Jonny's playing Dear Marie by John Mayer on his Spotify and I'm so content. We love Valentines Day! Usually we just use it as an excuse to go spend some time together going somewhere new.. or just to a coffee shop where we'll sit on Pinterest (ok I will..) and we'll plan exactly how our house will look like one day. We look at cabins we love and talk about whether we want skylights in our room or not and whether we can fit a secret door to a man cave in somewhere (Still a no Jonny). It's the best. I could spend everyday with Jonny and never get sick of him. I love how much he laughs at Winston from New Girl, and I love how he will write me a little note and instead of writing on the lines of the paper, he'll turn it sideways and write across the lines with his 12 year old handwriting. He puts circles for dots on his i's and it drives me insane but I love it because it's him and he doesn't change who he is for anyone! He's constant and comfortable and confident and I love him.
Its turned quite into the Jonny appreciation post hasn't it. I don't care, he's amazing. And I'll boast if I want to.
