Apology to my lover

Here's to us, in another 40 years.

I owe you an apology.
When I fell in love again back in 2008, I couldn't help myself. I wanted to share it with the world. After all, I was sharing every pratfall I experienced that led up to that point in Kiss & Tell The World, why not share the ecstatic joy of falling in love with ya'all as well? I felt a duty to prove to my dear readers that while I was fully capable of being snarky, sarcastic and pessimistic as hell about post-40 dating, that I was just as capable of expressing my newfound optimism and boundless love when I met the right person?
And then, at some point, after that new car smell wore off, I stopped sharing.
And for that, I apologize. To you, my sweet man. Because here we are, 2 1/2 years later, and I still love you so so so so so much that I have gone up against the biggest corporation in America to save your mother's house when she was wronged. I love you so so so so so so much that I don't stomp hard on your foot when you encourage my parents to come and visit more often because "Family is everything!" as you are so quick to point out, darn you. I love you so much. And I don't want anyone to think that just because I don't write about it as much anymore, that I love you any less.
I plan on loving you for the rest of my life, until we're older than our own parents now. And I plan on still having those lovely, lingering kisses with you when we're well into our 80's. And you know how I am. Once I set my mind to something, I'm in it for the long haul, baby. So keep doing those lip calisthenics!

In the meantime, readers, check out my new blog detailing my efforts at restoring my lover's mother's home, which was improperly foreclosed upon by Bank of America.

The Honeymoon Is Not Over


I can hardly believe it, but a month from today, the Best Boyfriend In The World and I will be celebrating two amazing years together. And you know what? The Honeymoon is most definitely not over yet. Sure, there's been moments when we've had disagreements, experienced some hard feelings and said some things we shouldn't have. And more than once my sweetheart has turned to me and said, "So that's it? The Honeymoon's over now?"

No, honey. It's not. Strangely, amazingly, it's not.

Maybe it's because we're still doing that long-distance journey every weekend or so...a long 4 1/2 hour trek to be with each other, but we make the best out of every moment together. Perhaps if we lived together, we wouldn't treasure our time as much as we do.

Maybe we'd start to take each other for granted.

Maybe we'd get so used to being around each other that we'd get bored.

And then again, maybe not.

But here I am, almost two years into the most incredible relationship of my life, wondering how I got to be so lucky that I have a man who gives me everything I have ever wanted, and yet he thinks he's the lucky one to have me in his life.

Really, could it get any better?

Maybe it could.

I sure would like to find out.
