+ jordan went to nyc this week & i picked him up from the airport saturday night. he greeted me with a foot-pop kiss that was maybe a couple seconds too long to have been public-appropriate. we drove downtown, and he ran over a curb on the way into the parking garage. we could not stop laughing about it. later, while we were sitting across the table from each other at italian village, i kept getting this rush of christmas-like thrill, where i would just feel this excited buzz all over. i kept asking myself "is there something specific that i'm looking forward to? why do i feel this way?" and then i recognized that the buzz was simply due to having jordan home. i've said it before - but there is no greater feeling that being reunited with my human. he makes everything feel like christmas.
