causes of rosy tinted cheeks

Dear Sexy Man,

I sit here and a knowing smile and peaceful spell comes over me as I thrill in solitude. In my mind I am wrapped in your arms, held close to you and caressed to sleep. In my mind I contemplate the deep pleasures of the loving look in your eyes. And in my mind I am thrilled to discover that my admirable husband—so able and accomplished in relating to men and things of men’s world—is as well considerably accomplished in causing a blush upon my cheek, a quickening of my pulse, a thrill from head to foot and this knowing smile upon my lips.

Love from your Blushing Bride

being a wife is fun

My Love,

In my mind’s eye I can see you come in the door and all cares drop from your weary shoulders as you see me, smiling, welcoming, caring for you. I love the way you’ll drop a kiss on my cheek. The way you’ll explain to me—so patiently—what demons you have wrestled with all day and how well you bested them. I love the way my little laugh will bring a smile to your eyes and your breathing relaxes and deepens. I love to think of how you’ll catch my hand and kiss it to let me know I’ve done my job beautifully, and you are feeling restored and rejuvenated to the wonderful, admirable, capable slayer of demons and dragons I so admire.

It must be so very difficult for you to have such deep, high and fine ideals and aspirations that aren’t being met. I just want you to know that I admire your determination, courage and resolve to keep working towards them.
