We are taking a break from the usually scheduled blog program, for a brief moment of absolutely mushy romantic sentimentality...
The first night I met my husband (long before I knew he was going to be my husband), we talked non-stop about music and our favorite bands (not much has changed) and I couldn't believe I'd met someone with such similar tastes. We went on to share a friendship and lots of hot chocolate and episodes of "Faulty Towers." He barely knew me, but found out it had been my birthday recently and he bought me the most perfect birthday gift. Needless to say, I was impressed.
Our first date was dinner in a Chinese restaurant about a year later, and the rest, as they say, is history. Two years later to the day, on October 6th, we were married in a historic Victorian rose garden. All these years later and he's still my best friend. He makes me laugh, he lets me sleep in late on Saturdays; he does the dishes for me; and buys me unexpected little gifts for no reason, like yummy peach rings (even though he thinks they are gross). He celebrates all the quirky interests I have (and shares most of them with me). He challenges me to step out of my comfort zone. He's patient with my faults. Did I mention he makes me laugh? :)
I married a former Army analyst, turned rock star, turned computer programmer, turned philosophy professor... who knows what the journey holds next! All I know is, he's still my best friend, and I love him to bits! Happy anniversary, sweetie!
Come grow old with me; the best is yet to be!
