This is quite the beautiful thing. Everything having its place. A way to be intimate, but to stay modest. You seem to have quite the healthy relationship with your husband. Love is best served with equal parts health. Enjoy that meal, and may it last a lifetime.
Love is a unique flower bloomed from rich soil (the heart) Although I never had such experience and am afraid of such things I do my best to accept it. There is the human part of me that longs for it yet the phobia which confuses both brain and heart. I do love seeing others blossom in their marriage and get married period for it is taken for granted and not as frequent as it should be. Marriage is a beautiful thing. I do like this piece it makes me smile.
Sounds like a good place to be in marriage. One that still has some pretense of mystery to keep the partners intrigued and interested. After 20 yrs my husband is still a bit quirky about frontal nudity after a shower, but its endearing because my fingertips now every bump and line if his body. I think love grows stronger because of the foibles not in spite of them. We are only self-conscious around people whose opinions really matter. The rest of the world can go hang.
