Three is a magic number
So. Apparently, I am just not coordinated enough to both be a blogger and…. well…. do anything else at the same time these days. What with my eBay selling, plethora of photography projects, trying to keep my city deck garden alive, and all my fun daily life adventures with Scope and Wednesday, somehow blogging just always seems to find its sad, neglected self crying at the bottom of my to-do list.
But never mind all that. Today—TODAY—is a very special day, so, dammit, I’m dusting off ye olde bloggity skillz because, you see, there’s this:
Three years ago today, I married my very best friend, my dear, sweet, precious Scope. *squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!* It was a truly amazing, delightful day and, honestly, each and every day since has been more wonderful, like a warm, fuzzy blanket we can snuggle up in (or pull over our heads on those more difficult days) and I wouldn’t trade this life we’ve made together for anything. So….
To my dear, incredible Hubba Hubba Hubby,
Before I met you, I didn’t know how to trust anymore. What could be more dangerous than trust? Nothing. I didn’t, I wouldn’t, I couldn’t trust anyone. But, most of all, I didn’t trust myself.
When I saw my reflection in the mirror, all I could see was a mistake in my past. I could never shake it. I sometimes felt like I was nothing more than that mistake. It was me; I was it; we were one—just one big mess. I couldn’t forgive myself for what had happened and I was determined to never risk it happening again. Never.
I knew my Mr Right was out there somewhere in the world, but I couldn’t see how I would ever recognize him or be capable of trusting him or myself enough to allow him to get close. I remember saying aloud that “the universe is just going to have to be blunt and drop the perfect guy right into my lap” or else I’d live out my life alone, because I there was no way I was going to go out into the world looking for him and risk crossing paths with another Mr Wrong.
The universe must have heard me loud and clear, because one amazing day—BOOM!—you dropped right into my lap, just like magic. You made trusting you feel so easy and safe. You made trusting myself feel easy and safe as well, and I’m still trying to figure out how on earth you did that. (Seriously, how did you do that?!)
You swooped in like Superman and changed both Wednesday’s and my lives in all the most wonderful ways and every day I am thankful and still in awe that we met. Your smile lights up my whole world, just like it lit up the whole airport on the day we first met. Every time you hug me or kiss me or make me laugh or make Wednesday feel loved, I fall more and more in love with you.
You’re simply perfect, Scope. You’re sweet, smart, handsome, hilarious, sexy, silly, cuddly, and all the most marvelous things all rolled into one. You're such a great husband and father and I can hardly remember what life was like Before Scope.... or B.S. as I like to call it. (See what I did there?) I love you to pieces! Happy Anniversary! :-)
