The Smiles are Keeping Me Awake

You know how, as a kid, a few nights before Christmas, it suddenly became really hard to sleep, because a few rooms over, covered in thin paper, was that one present you’d been dreaming about since last year? You’d toss and turn, trying to sleep but kept awake by anticipation so tantalizing it was nearly palpable, because Christmas morning was just. so. close…..

It’s like that at my house now. Except it’s not Christmas. I am, however, up in the middle of the night nearly dancing around in childlike anticipation. In about three and a half days–not that I’m counting– I get to have a first date with an amazing guy who’s been charming gazillions of smiles from me for the last month or so. Patience came more naturally the year I knew I was getting a pink Barbie convertible under the tree, and that’s saying something!

I’m a grown-up now, so I have to do more than pretend to sleep, but the smiles aren’t fading anytime soon. đŸ˜€
