Dating Anniversary

The nice thing about being together for thirty one years is that you know each other very well. Today, Tom and I celebrate the day we first started dating. I was only sixteen years old and he was eighteen. We celebrate this anniversary every year. It’s dear to us because we were together for three and half years before getting married. I guess we are hopeless romantics.

After so many years together, I can almost read Tom’s mind. It amazes him whenever it happens and vice versa. That is what years of being together does to you. It makes you comfortable with one another. A look or a smile communicates so much without a word being spoken.

Tom is my best friend. I love him dearly. Our love has carried us through and will continue to bring us closer as walk through the ups and downs of life. Thank you handsome for loving me for the past thirty one years.

I probably should've checked Tom's blog before commenting, but I'll do it after.

The words you write here are so sweet. I met my husband on Sept. 15th and we always used to celebrate it. I wonder why we ever stopped. :(

I hope you spend many more years celebrating life together. You look so good together! :)
