Oh this boy, I don’t know how I ever got so lucky!! A few days ago I said to him, “If you’re a boat, I’m a boat” (our own special edition New England version of The Notebook. anyone? anyone?) To which he said “ok then, you go be the sail and I’ll be the anchor, and together I think we’ll do just fine.” And then the next day I came downstairs to find two cookies from our favorite bakery on the kitchen: one was a sailboat, the other was an anchor. It’s those little things like that, that keep me constantly surprised & on my toes, knowing that in nearly nine years of marriage he’s never stopped dating me. That make me feel simultaneously like the most loved & luckiest girl in the world. It’s those things that took a girl who said she’d NEVER get married and made her someone who with her whole heart now believes in love. So I’ll be a sail, and he’ll be the anchor.
And together I think we’ll do just fine.
