This is my first Love Thursday post and I'm so excited to be joining this popular blogosphere tradition! For those unfamiliar with Love Thursday, I first stumbled on it from Karen's (Chookaloonks) website -- every Thursday she shares examples of the love and/or kindness that she sees all around her, and invites others to do the same.
Although Love Thursday need not be about romantic love, I wanted my first Love Thursday post to be about Graham, my husband/lover/friend/confidante/sparring partner. This photo was taken in the office where we worked together, 8 years ago. At the time, we had been carrying on a fake office romance, just for laughs. Somehow it turned into the real thing. We carried on pretending to have a pretend romance, and started dating after work. When some of our colleagues heard we had gotten married, they didn't believe it, they thought we were still kidding! And here we are, 8 years and 3 kids later. Honey, did I tell you yet today? I love you. See my smile? That's love.
