Love Note
My Dearest Love:
We've been in love for a long time now, two kids at the beginning of their teens not fully understanding what love was. The ins and outs, ups and downs of relationships was something we learned together along the way. One thing we learned is that we belonged together and we've never let anything that happened along the way get in our way and here we are more than a half century still crazy about one another at least still crazy, crazy in love. I would still walk to the top of the volcano with you and hold on to you while you gaze over the edge; there's just something about love that makes a person forget about the dangers that surround them. I hope I still make you feel the same way. I hope I always will make you feel safe the way I did back when we could both still climb the mountain, back before we knew the word fear & can't. I feel so lucky to still have you here with me for without you there would be no world for me to wonder through. My heart would lose the timing of its beat without you to keep rhythem with

I love you-
still crazy about you <3

I'll Always Love You
Forever & Ever
Your Steve

My love
Sunday night - nearly midnight...I remember we would be downtown, just hanging out...walking around aimlessly - mostly looking for trouble - lol.
Do you recall the ‘dairies’ out in West Sac - we’d bring home sandwich stuff and chips and cookies for Cella and the little boys....funny how I don’t remember Linda being there, but she must have been - she was only about 12 or 13 then.
Guess that’s what happens when we get old - selective memories. I choose to remember (and romanticize) those times.
You’re right - we were - are - crazy...we could have had it all - but instead we threw it away - multiple times....we are so lucky to have this last chance.
Safe - yes - you always made me feel safe...even when we argued, I knew that you’d never touch me violently - and that you’d die before you let anything hurt me. I’ve always had a hang up about being safe and secure - so odd when you think about how fearless I acted - lol
I love you. Always and forever....I know you won’t get this until way after Christmas, but Merry Christmas anyway. I’ll mail your card this week...
Love - always and all ways
Your Jeannie

My dear love
New Year’s Eve. I’ll be next door at Amber’s - we will read the letter that we wrote last year (predictions) and laugh about the successes and failures. Then we’ll come up with the crazy predictions for the upcoming year. Probably wrap it up and be in bed by 10 at the latest - the guys all work tomorrow. They really only get 2 holidays off - Christmas and Thanksgiving.
I don’t think my last message has been mailed as yet, so you’ll get both together. Hopefully you’ll have already received my Christmas card - I talked to John yesterday and he didn’t have his as yet - guess that’s what happens when they aren’t mailed until Christmas Eve - lol
Time for me to go feed the dogs - and take my morning medicines - sigh. I should drive into town and get my second shingles shot (oh boy)
I love you - will be with you in my heart when the world changes to 2020.
As always, my love...
Your Jeannie
