A week from today marks 12 years since I drove in the snow to a movie theater two towns from my own for a first date. Never mind that I tried to get out of that date or that the guy in question has since admitted he chose a movie date in case conversation was lacking. Clearly, neither of us had high hopes for that first date.
Next month marks another anniversary, however: 12 years since that date led to an awkward DTR talk along the lines of "so, are we exclusive now?"
I think we all know how the story goes from there since this June marks another anniversary...our 7th wedding anniversary!
So many years, so many anniversaries, so many ways and opportunities to show love to one another.
This past week Sean's shown me love by bringing me countless vials of eye drops and glasses of water. By letting me dictate a whole blog post to him and by not complaining every time I lose my clear (WHY?) eye shields and ask for his help recovering them. On top of this, he's taken on a lot more around the house than is normal: all the dog walks, all the litter box cleanings, all the dishes.
When my vision allows me more independence, it will be my turn to throw a little extra love his way: to cook him some extra yummy dinners, to file taxes, and to tackle the mountain of laundry that has piled up since my procedure and letting him relax and enjoy some time in front of the TV instead of calling him up for help. It also means I have the chance to toss some of his unmentionable items and replace them with some that are so soft, I debated keeping them for myself (why do men keep holey clothes!?).
Mr. & Muse sent us some delectably soft boxer briefs (they're made with bamboo fibers. Seriously, please make women's underwear next!) including a "Happy Anniversary" greeting for Sean—they have all sorts of cheeky greetings to choose from—that will be waiting in his drawer soon enough. Hopefully he doesn't see this post before then, and hopefully his gift gives him inspiration to say "I love you" in another way ;)
