They're calling for one of the first thunderstorms of spring tonight. I'm really excited because one of my favorite things is thunderstorms when I'm safely tucked into bed with Jon. I'm not exactly sure why. I think it's a combination of feeling really safe but also really secluded. There's just something about being surrounded by darkness yet given an occasional view of Jon that I find absolutely delightful. Something that I truly treasure in that moment. It feels like we're the only two people on earth.

However, should I ever be alone during a thunderstorm, particularly at night, I hate them. There was one night in college that they were calling for severe storms where I made my friend Phaedra come stay at my apartment with me through the night just in case (and obviously I was blessed with such wonderful friends in college) because I couldn't handle being there alone. Also, I'm pretty sure it never actually thundered that night.

It's a total love/hate relationship, but tonight I'm feeling amorous...


  1. I too love cuddling with my hubby during thunderstorms!

  2. I know, Jess! It's wonderful! Unfortunately we didn't have any thunder down by us!
