Happy Anniversary

Today is our anniversary, the day I married my best friend and soul mate. It's been 13 years since Cheesehead and I got married. Where in the world did the time go? Do you have that problem too? The time just gets away from me and there's no stopping it. I can't for the life of me remember why in the world we wanted to get married in March though. Brr. It's freezing just like it was my wedding day. Both the day before and the day after were nice days for March, sunny and calm winds, but the 2nd? Not so. It seems like it was only yesterday....

The wind whipped around like crazy and I wasn't sure the 50+ (I counted them later) bobby pins that held my hair in place would be enough to withstand the perilous weather conditions. Thankfully Cheesehead forced me to get my hair done professionally that day so my hairstyle was perfectly cemented in place with probably a full bottle of extra strength hairspray. Two of my bridesmaids were going to go to the salon together the morning before our wedding. Apparently he gave them the money it would cost for me to get my hair done too, so they made appointments for all three of us. I didn't know it at the time, I thought they were being sweet and helping me out since I was cutting every possible corner with the costs for our wedding.

That's just one of the great things about Cheesehead. He's kind, thoughtful, and unselfish. He puts others before himself and always tries to be polite (which also hurts his health in my opinion). He's the best friend I have. I don't know what I would do or who I would be without him and his unending support behind me.

It's like we're two halves of the same person. When he thinks of something, I usually think of the same thing. He'll ask me were I want to eat and we usually both have the same restaurant in mind. It seems like he can read my mind. When I'm too tired to clean up after dinner, he'll offer to clean up even though he just worked all day.

He helps me remember not only the dreamy sides of my creativity that I get so hung up on, but also the reality side. When I am certain that I will have a bountiful, weed-free garden brimming with perfect, ripe veggies he's there to reel me in. If I think I am able to take care of a 20x30 garden my first year back in the garden circuit he's here to gently remind me that it will be much more work than I remember. When I forget the children will probably refuse to help me after the first few days of gardening, he's right there to pull me back to planet earth.

I wish I could just take the day off and spend it with him, but he has to go to some meetings in Eau Claire and stay overnight tonight. If he had some time off I might think about trying to go with him but the meetings go long into the night and start bright and early the next morning.

Honey, I love you more today than ever. Know that even though we can't be together you'll be on my mind all day.

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave me a message. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
