Happy Anniversary...

I'm not a "yell from the rooftops how you feel" kind of person, but I wanted to say something...

Todd and I don't really have an anniversary. We were already friends before we started dating, and at the beginning of our relationship in 2006, it was tough to say what was a real "date" and what was us just hanging out as friends. I count June 24, 2006 as the day we truly started dating, since that was when I had dropped most of the expectations of ever reconciling with Dave and decided to go ahead and give "The Todd Thing" a serious try. It was also the day that Todd escorted me to my 10 year high school reunion, and that was definitely a date...

In the last two years, I've been amazingly surprised at how compatible we are. I never expected this to be more than a passing fling, but it has turned out to be so much more. I've done so much in the last 2 years. I've challenged myself to new things, and I've become a better person. I've learned to forgive and be forgiven, and to move on from the bad experiences that once defined who I am. With Todd, I get to be an adult and a kid at the same time, calm down, take life in stride and just generally have an all around great time.

We've found "our" places - Southern Cross Club in Little Cayman, Paradise Pub in Key Largo, California Grill in Walt Disney World, Richard's in Bonaire... and most of all, the home that we share and we've decorated together.

There are friends that we have together, that never knew me as Mrs. H -- scuba friends, running friends, too many people to name here even though I started compiling a list.

There are other interesting transformations that have happened... I've gone from owning one bathing suit at a time to owning up to 6 and 8 bathing suits at once -- and they STILL don't seem like enough. I've learned to scuba dive and swim for real. I've challenged myself to run 4 marathons and I've had someone running right beside me and cheering me on for two of those. Todd doesn't get all the credit though, some of that is me just finally having the freedom to find myself and do what I please.

No, it's not that we haven't had our bumps in the road. Certainly there are more bumps in the future. It doesn't matter. I'm happier than ever before and I just want to say "Thank you!"

Yes, very sweet actually. Sorry, I need to lighten it up a bit so I'm thinking several things:

1. Aw, shucks. (Blushing)

2. I rock!! (LOL!)

3. You are still on a post-vacation high.

LOL! ;-)
