“You want to know what happiness is? It’s waking up in the middle of the night
for no reason, shifting under the blankets and feeling the heat of the person
next to you. You turn around and see them in their most peaceful, innocent and
vulnerable state. They breathe as though the weight of the world lays on
anyone’s shoulder but their own. You smile, kiss their face in the most gentle
manner so as not to wake them. You turn back around and involuntarily a grin
forms on your own face. You feel an arm wrap around your waist, and you know it
doesn’t get any better than this.”
Dave and I are celebrating our 30th Anniversary today. I can’t believe how fast the years have gone. It sure has been an adventurous 30 years. And I imagine the next 30 will be the same.
Our first big adventure was our honeymoon in Hawaii.
We were living on Maui when we celebrated our 20th Anniversary with a re-commitment ceremony on the beach.
This year, we’ll celebrate here in our winter home in Florida.
I can honestly say that I am more in love with him today than I was all those years ago. And I will often look across the room and think to myself… WOW, that’s one good looking, sexy man!
He makes me laugh almost every day. In fact, he’ll go out of his way to do something silly, just to hear me laugh.
I can be having an absolutely horrible day and as soon as he puts his arms around me, I know that it’s going to be okay. Whatever it is, we’ll get through it together.
Because we have. And we will continue to do so.
There is no one else I’d rather spend each and every day with.
Happy Anniversary Dave! You are my best friend, my lover and my soulmate. And I could not imagine life without you.
