So, I never posted about Valentine's Day. Maybe that's because I kinda hate Valentine's Day. But I've been thinking lately about what I've got. And what I've got is an awesome man.
When I was a teenager I decided that my future husband would wear khakis & leather sandals, just like the models in the J. Crew catalog. And I decided that my underwear of choice for him would be boxer-briefs. Oh, teenage girls... Now the thought of khakis & leather sandals makes me shake my head & stick my finger in my mouth while making a gagging noise. It's silly to think about.
Honestly, I think my teenage self knew what she wanted in a man. I just didn't think that I'd really ever end up with that guy. Then in the blink of an eye, I met him & now here we've been enjoying marriage for almost 10 years.
When it gets down to it, the clothes didn't matter. What did matter was finding the guy that loved me like crazy, that would be my partner in all things, my best friend, liked rock and roll music & that made me laugh & have fun. When each day is over, all the work of running a household is totally worth it as long as I have his company. And I am thankful indeed.
Oh, by the way...Dylan got a job! Looks like we're staying in Vegas for the time being. We are relieved & I'm so proud of him. :)
