3 Years of Marriage (and a day)

June 6, 2007 at 7:54 pm (Personal, Song Lyrics/Poems By Me)

Calvin showed me up yesterday by posting a sweet piece about our life together so far, so I just wanted to put my own two cents in! I really was going to say something yesterday on our 3 year anniversary, but it got too late by the time we were finished having a lovely evening together. He of course blogged from work, how he manages to do this I don’t know, I am working at work, not blogging……. 😉

So Calvin surprised me with some beautiful flowers:
We watched Never Been Kissed, which is a cute movie, and then we snuggled and chatted over my favorite! the Strawberry White Zinfandel:

All in all, a lovely evening, and I’m looking forward to Sunday when we do our “big” celebration of the King and I and Outback (I’m guilty of the choice on this every anniversary so far – though Calvin insists he loves their chicken, he’s not a steak person, and I am – but I offer somewhere else, and he insists!).

As we’ve been packing, I’ve run across old letters that I used to write to Calvin in High School during boring classes or study hall (er…maybe that’s kinda like him blogging at work?). Even though we chatted online all the time, for some reason I insisted on writing snail mail letters just because I wanted to chat about absolutely nothing and make him a part of my day while he was so far away.

I’m so glad that you’re a daily part of my life forever now! There’s no one I’d rather be married to than my absolute best friend in the whole wide world, and I love you with all my heart Calvin!!

(For those of you unfamiliar with our history, I blogged it all down once here)

If there were no words
No way to speak
I would still hear you
If there were no tears
No way to feel inside
I’d still feel for you

And even if the sun refused to shine
Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart
until the end of time
You’re all I need, my love, my Valentine

All of my life
I have been waiting for
All you give to me
You’ve opened my eyes
And shown me how to love unselfishly

I’ve dreamed of this a thousand times before
But in my dreams I couldn’t love you more
I will give you my heart
Until the end of time
You’re all I need, my love, my Valentine

And even if the sun refused to shine
Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart
until the end of time
‘Cause all I need is you, my Valentine
You’re all I need, my love, my Valentine

    should i have read this? it feels a little bit like i was eavesdropping. but that just means it is good writing, i suppose…

    how is the move coming? are you still thrilled about it?

    i miss you. just come here.

    A little less than 2 weeks now, and I’m just dying to get to our new apartment, which has air conditioning, and set up everything all nice and pretty until it explodes into disorganization again. And then reality will hit and I’ll realize I have no money until Calvin finds a job. But I try not to think about that!
