All of the nights

I got the first night that The Coach was home.

And now I want every night.

And I want Thursday ten times over. Couldn't we? Shouldn't we? It was a night worth reliving. Ten times would be enough. Ten more times of The Coach slinging his arm around my shoulders as we waited for our coffee. Ten more opportunities to watch his face as I tell him a particularly amusing story about my particularly insane family. Ten more walks. Ten more phone calls just as he's getting home, both of us laughing at a stupid prank that I pulled because something about being around him keeps me from being anything but my silly self. Just ten times. Ten times would be enough.

I got the first night that The Coach was home.

And now I want every night.

I don't get every night -- that isn't how this works and I know that isn't how this works. He has a family. He has friends. He's been gone four months and back four days and I don't get every single one of them.

But I still want every single one of them.

And every single one going forward.

I just love the stories of you two. I'm totally rooting for you guys. Like more so then any couple on One Tree Hill ever (so that's a LOT!) xo
