Dear Mr. Welch,
I think about the yellowing stack of letters tied with a shoestring hidden from our children and nosey people, the letters that still bring a red blush to my cheeks.
Remember our hot words on cool paper? We were so young, so far apart from each other, but words brought us together. Words created all of this (wide-arm gesturing over the piles of laundry and floating dust bunnies). We fell deeply, madly in love over letters scratched out while my first grade class was at recess.
It was the season I went from Ms. Clark to Mrs. Welch over the Christmas break, now more than 17 years ago.
It’s always been easier for me to use words, written, typed, unspoken. And then whispered later.
I’m so glad we’re taking the time to write letters to each other. I find it very attractive to discover you hunched over with pen in hand.
There’s just something about a letter. You’ve made that a special, treasured gift in our home and I thank you for it. I look forward to that crawling red blush again.
My hubby and I are writing love letters. You should join in, too. It’s one of the best ways to celebrate hot monogamy!
