You and Me {Creative Writing}

Sandwiched in between
  days
    weeks
      months
        years.

Are pressed together
  lives
    dreams
      successes
        failures.

We follow, one after the other
  trading places
    sharing the lead
      arm in arm
        as one.

You and me.

marriage, husbands, partners, all about me, family, being married

Yes. This is really what he is like, and it is just one of the reasons I love him.

I have been watching my friend Kir participate in Trfecta for awhile now. Today I decided to finally join in.

This weekend we are giving you three variations on a prompt. We need you to give us 33 words back, and 2 of those words must be either “cheap flights,” “sandwiched in” or “spectacularly clean.” This weekend, your piece must also be non-fiction (poetry or prose). And yes, we reserve the right to call your mothers and former lovers to ask for verification on your tales.

Trifecta offers creative writing prompts if you are looking for idea or just want to stretch your writing muscles.

      Imagine living with that. LOL Of course one of the reasons I love him is that he always makes me laugh.

      Funny back story on the photo. I had my camera set up on the tripod, and I let my four year old push the button for me. He saw his dad doing this and never game him away until after the photo was snapped.

    Welcome to Trifecta! Thanks for linking up. I love your response. Truth is, I love any well-told tale of happy marriages/partnerships. Your guy looks like a younger version of my father-in-law. (Which is a compliment.) :-)
