I love when I get to wake up later than my husband on a weekday because he has a lovely habit of giving me a light kiss while I'm sleeping to let me know he's leaving. On this particular hazy winter morning, I warily opened one eye that was still heavy with slumber and my first thought was, "he's so handsome", which I must have mumbled to him before I drifted back into sleep. When I woke up, it felt like I dreamt the moment, which made it all the more romantic. It still leaves a little smile on my face when I think about it.
