I woke up today to the feeling of being watched. When I opened my eyes, Dixie was sitting next to my pillow intensely staring at me. She giggled. I smiled. "Good morning," I said, stretching. She decided to share a pillow with me.

I know some of our friends can relate - motherhood came so natural to me. Jasper seems like a natural father, too. Dixie is the perfect baby for us. We are blessed.

A few moments later Jasper walked into the room. "Guess what?" he asked. "What?" I responded, looking up at him after looking at the ground to see what kind of socks he was wearing.

I love that he wears mix matching socks. He always had. I remember the second time we hung out, he took off his shoes in the treehouse and I admired his socks. Now, years later, he hasn't changed.

"Dixie is going to spend the day with Aunt Tatum and Uncle Spencer. We have the day and night to ourselves," he explained, joining us on the bed. We needed alone time. Desperately.

Dixie heard Aunt Tatum and immediately looked around. "She's coming to pick you up in the next 10 min," Jasper told her, giving her a kiss on the head. "I'll pack a bag for her," I said, sitting up. "Everything's already done," he said. "You. are. amazing," I told him.

Always, always will be.

I heard a car horn outside. That's Tatum. Dixie jumped up on the bed and squealed with joy. I grabbed her and kissed her on the face and then squeezed her in a hug. "I'll miss you. Be good, my love," I told her. She hugged me and then Jasper walked her out.

He came back into the room and laid on top of me. We started kissing and it escalated from there. It's been a very long time since we've been intimate. And we were both in need of each other.

We ended our day with hanging out in the woods and then visiting my parents and Cyrus. Tatum will be dropping Dixie off tomorrow afternoon.

"Oh, I forgot to tell you, Monroe is a wolf and as you know, Raven is not, so she wanted us to have a talk with her about what it's like to change. How she should prepare and all the essentials. I figured we could do that in the next few days," I said to Jasper. He nodded. "There's a full moon on Thursday...maybe it'd be best if she could experience it with us...maybe Magdalena can watch our little ones," he said, intertwining our hands. "Okay...that sounds good...I'll talk to Magda and Cole," I said, resting my head on his shoulder.

Today had to be one of the best days I've ever had.
