i am excited for pumpkin bread
and the smell of fallen leaves
and long walks with my husband
where we talk about what's next for us
in this little life of ours.
i am excited to wear tights and sweaters
and for the scent of mulling spices
to fill our tiny apartment
while we listen to simon & garfunkel
on the record player.
i am excited to one day
whether it is a year from now or 5 years from now
spend a rainy afternoon in bed
snuggled up next to my bennett
counting the tiny fingers
and tiny toes
of the sleeping baby in between us.
