Rants, ruminations, and rambling remarks from my mad, muddled, meandering mind.

Three Years, Plus One

To My Lovely Bride, as we begin a new year,

Four years ago, we met for the first time, and my life has been richer, fuller, ever since. Three years ago, we said, "I do," surrounded by family and with our friends on Twitter cheering us on. Today, our Spousal Leveling Contract finishes level 3, and we start level 4. We are so alike and yet so different. Your strengths make up for my weaknesses, but I can only hope to shore up any of yours. I am sure I can be exasperating at times.

I saw this the other day and saved it for this occasion. I hope I can be this romantic when I'm old and grey. I love you.

In some ways, it feels like I've known you forever. Like you're the other half of me that I was missing all those years before we met. In other ways, our time together seems to have flown by. Like we just met. So many changes in such a short time. It has been an adventure this far, and I hope to keep our quest log full for decades to come.
