I read this quote by Oscar Wilde,
"I think it's very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person."
I cherish my time with Gustavo, and he cherishes his time with me. I am about as introvert as they come, and I adore my time alone. I run, read and nap - to be alone in my own head.
There are a few things in our apartment that our his. The thing's Gus loves. I know not to get between this man and his ...
the newspaper and morning coffee.
He has a Bose iPod dock, which I thought was more than sufficient for our 500 square foot apartment. He got four of these babies for only "$30" off Craig's List. I don't know if they really cost $30 for 4 sets of speakers, they were hiding in our neighbors house after he picked them up - before he mustered the courage to tell me he bought them ... But I don't get between this man and his Technics.
The Bose dock was my gift to Gustavo our first Christmas together. I bought them in Portland, Oregon and was oh, so proud.
I believe he bought record player #1 at Wonder Records in Harrisonburg. I do not touch.
Record player #2 from Wonder Records, so one can take over when the other needs a rest.
More gold - from The Record Exchange in Frederick, Maryland.
And, more gold.
Answer me this:
Don't stay between you and your ______.
xoxo. Happy Hump Day.
