NECTARINE BASIL SALSA

June 23, 2013

At night, just as David is probably really settling into sleep, is when I start talking. I think this is true of many people, especially kids. Right before bed is kind of a little emotional purge. The day is over.

It’s then that my mouth really gets moving and I’m just spilling all my thoughts and feelings from the day. David is kind to entertain my ramblings until it gets to be too late.

My favorite topic of rambling at night is usually how much I love Dave. I’m fully realizing the night is over and tomorrow he will go to work, so going to bed is kind of like a goodbye. And that’s when the crazy happens. These are excerpts of things I remember saying (and I’m not sure I even want to know the things I’ve forgotten saying.)

“I’m so obsessed with you. Like seriously obsessed.”

“I think I could go years without being more than 100 feet away from you and never get sick of it or need any alone time.”

“I wish we had a baby carrier for adults, so I could go around with you all day kind of like a back pack.”

“I love you so much I could die.”

And then Dave is smiling and half sleep laughing and saying, “You won’t die from loving me. And I love you too.”

    That is very sweet. I think your love for your husband is one of the more charming things about your blog.

      Thanks Alison!

    This looks so nice. My problem is sourcing nectarines (or plums either) that aren’t weird little rock-hard things that devolve into strange bruised yet still hard around the pit things. Even at the farmers market it’s pretty hard.

      Try mangos or peaches too!
