I aslo smiled that your called your girl “little lady,” that is so sweet. I can tell you are a sensitive compasionate person. I remmber that first love, it’s so all encompassing and passionate and so bittersweet. It’s interesting but love evolves as we grow older- my perception of love in my teens was different than what my perception of love is now…
I am glad you have found someone special for you…..and who gets those creative juices going!
