Bev to Ande: 10 June 1943

Wed.  10 p.m.

Dearest Darling:

What I wouldn’t give just to be near you to-night? – to hear you say “I love you” and then to feel your fond embrace – it would be wonderful!  I love you, Honey, and miss you more than I can ever say.  When I think of those months we were together, it seems that every day was a day of romance and adventure too.  Marriage is an adventure, and what an exciting, beautiful one.  Those months were just one perfect honeymoon – let’s always keep them that way.  There’s no reason why we can’t, for I’ll always love you, and always want to do the little things that please and make you happy – always.

Now we have our kitchen curtains finally up, and do hope to put up the living and dining room ones tomorrow.  We want to do a little shopping tomorrow also; so will have another full day – but that’s what I like – never an idle moment to think of things I shouldn’t.  The kitchen curtains are bright yellow and really make the room very cheerful and pretty.  I was downtown today having lunch with June, Irene, Dorothy, Martha at Dayton’s Tea Rooms.  Irene is returning to Alabama next week, and so the celebration.  Also Dorothy has been out West and returned here for a visit.  I had some delicious salmon steak.  There is an orchestra that plays during the lunch hour, and I do like music while I eat – especially, Darling, when I can’t have you sitting across from me – you’re all I’d ever want at mealtime or any times – I’d rather hear your voice and see your smile than anything else.

Was telling Dad about the position offered me at the Blood Bank, and he said that if we could get a housekeeper to do the work and return to her own home each night, it would be OK with him.  I would like very much, I know, to be doing that type of work, for it is still for the Red Cross and yet a paying job.  Maybe I’ll start advertising for help and see what happens.

Seems rather odd to be back up in North Minneapolis, but it is lovely on the drive here, and if we ever do see the sun shine again, I will be happy.  We certainly have had our share of rain and cloudy weather this Spring.  As long as I’ve been so busy indoors, it doesn’t bother me so much, as wouldn’t have a chance to get outside anyway.

Goodnight, Dearest One – guess I’ll call it a day.  Have another busy day ahead tomorrow.  Hope you’re still able to have a good time – hiking – hunting – fishing – all the things you like to do.  I’m happy for you – take good care of yourself, though, and hurry home – I’m waiting with open arms, and all the love in the world.
