ahhh, yes. August 30th.
Time is a funny thing. I mean, I look at today's date, and first, I'm amazed that it's almost September already. I mean... what the hell happened to this year??? but that seems to happen all the time... I'll be here, putzing along like I usually do, then I realize that half or 3/4ths of the year has gone by. crazy.
But August 30th has a special kind of time warp for me... cause it's my anniversary.
Yup. 2 years ago, I married my beefcake.
but wait a minute... only TWO YEARS have gone by??? True, we have been together for 4 1/2 years, but that still seems like such a small number in comparison to the experiences we've shared thus far.
SO I guess that's good.... or is it? I mean, I love the level of familiarity we have... but aren't we still supposed to be all lovey-dovey and stuff?
yeah right.... like we've EVER been all lovey-dovey. No.... we may not be the saccharine-style-up-each-others-asses-with-matching-outfits-to-boot type of couple.... but there is love between us. Big love.
I mean... at this point in our lives... there HAS to be big love. .....but that's besides the point.
This man of mine is the one for me. No one else could fill his shoes, nor do I want them to. Troy is my motivator to get me moving faster and stronger, and my pace maker to slow me down before I burn out. He lifts my spirits right out of this world while making sure I stay grounded. He is part of every decision I make (whether he knows about it or not) and yet I have never had a stronger sense of independence and individuality. He is predictable yet never fails to surprise me. He is SOOOO not funny, but makes me laugh every day.
He is the man that held my hair back when I was puking from contractions. He is the one that holds my hand when I'm scared and just because he loves me. He has seen me at my worst times and my best times, and treats me the same either way.
He is my love, my partner, and most of all, my friend. And I realize that pretty much NO ONE in the world will ever look at him the way I do, but that's ok.... because I love knowing that what we have between us is just between us. Cause you know when it comes down to it... that's where it counts the most.
Happy Anniversary, Troy.... you really are a good boy.
