{ Mike Dear }

Do you remember the Disney cartoon "Lady and the Tramp"? As a child, I must've watched it dozens of times. I loved Lady, though those wicked Siamese cats and the slut-mutt in the pound who had a crush on the tramp kind of scared me. {Slut-mutt!! Well, I never! Who comes up with these kinds of phrases to describe innocent childrens' movies? Certainly not me...} Anyhow, another of the things I love about "Lady and the Tramp" is the interaction of Lady's human owners. A young couple in love, we never see their faces, but they always refer to each other as Jim Dear and Darling. I thought that was so romantic. I dreamed of my husband calling me Darling.

Well, I don't refer to my husband exclusively as Mike Dear, he doesn't usually call me Darling {unless Babe is the 21st-century equivalent}, and we haven't got a Cocker Spaniel puppy. But he definitely makes my heart go pitter-patter in a most undignified manner. Earlier this week while I was in San Diego, I scrolled through the photos on my camera and found so many good photos of my husband, it made me miss him more than I already did. As if that's possible. Take a peek for yourself:

See? Even while waiting for the Triple XXX burger of his dreams, he's happy. Content. Dreamy. *sigh*
I kid you not: His profile literally gives me a lump in my throat, and sometimes my heart skips a beat too. I had the biggest crush on Mike from the first time I saw him. It was awfully inconvenient 'til we started dating: I'd practically fall over at group events when I looked at him.
I call this Thoughtful Entrepreneur Pose.
{Why am I writing a blog post and not sitting on his lap right now? Why?}

Those eyes. Oh, those blue, blue eyes. I have married a handsome man, yes indeedy I have!
He is also a very mischevious man. This is the grin reserved for pranks and goofiness and all manner of highfalutin' shenanigans.
{Seriously...where IS he? Mike? Babe?}

Somehow, on my birthday, Mike ended up wearing the wig and margarita glasses.
He is still so stinkin' hot.

I've gotta go find him!
