Nineteen Years

So this kind of sums up the last nineteen years of my life with this man of mine.

This morning during our morning phone call I ask

“Jim, do you think that with all of this snow…”

“Yes Dear, the baby bunnies will be just fine.” 

“How did you know what I was going to ask?” 

“Because I know you so well.”

I ignore this bold statement based on the fact that he is completely right

“Are you sure I don’t need to go out and do anything to help them keep warm?”

“No, their mother will take care of them.” 

“You’re sure?”

“I am sure.”

“I don’t want to find dead baby bunnies when we clean out the garden.”

“You won’t find dead baby bunnies when we clean out the garden.”

“You’re sure?”

“I am sure!”

“Ok then I hope you’re right.” 

He moved on to a new topic.

The other night he gently reminded me that bunnies have been around forever and have been caring for themselves without my assistance and that he is sure they can manage now.   Sigh

He does know me so well and despite that fact he loves me anyway!

I am coming up on the 19th anniversary of the weekend I met my husband.  We have been talking a lot about that night and about how we really feel that we were meant to meet. 

In the meantime I have been cleaning and found some old love letters and pictures.  For some reason it never dawned on me that we met on April 27th and were married on February 27th.  Not that this is a big deal but the same date made me smile for some reason.

  Even more smile invoking was finding a picture from one of those photo booths from back in 91′.  There used to be a store downtown that looked like an old general store.  They had wooden floors and barrels for displaying things.  It was so charming and quaint and adorable.  Off to one side was a photo booth that took 5 black and white photos.  We were so young and adorable.  For some reason only known to me in the moment I not only dated the back of that photo but wrote the time as well, December 10, 1991, 5:00 pm.  What makes this so wild is that one year to the day and almost to the hour I found out that we were expecting our first child.  Again not earth moving but it was so cool to see us where we were one year before.  A little pause in time, two people who had no real idea of what lay ahead of them.

I have enjoyed reading those old letters.  My husband was quite the romantic and wrote to me almost daily.  He included his thoughts and feelings, as well as, poems and song lyrics.  I love him then but I could never have imagined how much more I would love him now.
