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!
