As I wrote about yesterday, I’m coming off a bad body image week. So when we woke up early this morning to make love, his obvious delight in looking at me touched my heart deeply.

Afterward, as I was reclining naked and he was up and looking through his closet for clothes for church, he glanced at me and commented that I reminded him of Rose in Titanic: “Draw me like one of your French girls.”

So I said, “Can you draw?” (How can I be married to this man and not even know?) “Can you draw me like one of the French girls?”

And that’s exactly what he did.

No matter how I see myself, it’s clear that my husband sees me as absolutely gorgeous. And he’s a boob man.

    Cute! ;o)

  2. May I just say, you and your husband are so cute :)! I have recently become a follower of your blog and as a many years “refuser”, I am learning so much and finding myself coming out of that place and into victory! Thank you!

    I can see he captured your winning smile. And your looong torso. Nice.

  4. I wrote this blog post while my husband was in the shower. When he got back into the bedroom, I told him I’d posted a naked picture of myself on my blog. He rolled his eyes and laughed.

  5. Ahh yes…the reclining nude. The subject of many artists. There are few things more beautiful than our lovely wives in this striking pose. There is an emotional beauty that exudes from the visual vulnerability and openness of our wives nakedness. It’s not surprising that the most prominent feature of your portrait is your smile. I’m sure it’s a reflection of not only the subject at the time, but of the artist himself.

    Pornography. Here, of all places. I’m averting my eyes. Nope. I peeked again. It’s addicting. LOL

  7. The best part is the smile – that he put there!

  8. Isn’t it amazing what we learn about our other half, even after many years? 🙂 He is a great artist!

  9. Did you steal this picture off my bedroom door?! My husband drew this exact picture of me this week and left it for me to find when I woke up. Also a boob man, obviously. Lol
