as a surprise for Steven while he was
out of the house. Luckily he was
eager to go biking)
Twice a month we wish one another 'Happy Monthiversary!'
Today is the Monthiversary of our wedding day. The
other is for the day we began dating. We started dating
at the end of July, and were married the following June.
We were definitely a case of love-at-first-sight, and I'm so
glad we were. The fact that we're still together, and I'd say
happier than ever is a miracle.
The kindness and understanding of friends, great advice
from my sister, the therapist, and then a few years of
therapy with a really great therapist during harder times
have helped us learn how to be happy and in love. Apparently
we make the decision to fall in love on the cellular level. I am
grateful to my cells for that decision. And I'm grateful to the
wide community in our lives for helping us to grow up
And above all I'm grateful to my sweetheart for loving me
no matter what. I am so glad we share an overwhelming
love of funny, a delight in our children, and the antics of
our animals. It's also lucky that we share a love of nature, and
are touched by small things like the daffodils blooming
valiantly in our garden despite the snow and ice of recent
weeks. So Happy Monthiversary to you Steven, and I hope that
my other blogger friends have people in their lives who
mean as much to them as you mean to me.
If you don't have someone who loves you this much now,
I am wishing that that person walks through the door in
the next few weeks. Be ready.
Have a celebrating-a-happy-time day.
