a nice and quiet Valentine’s Day…

So good, old V-Day snuck by us this year without too much commotion, and that was kind of nice for a change!

Sara ended up having to work until 2am on one of her crazy, double-shifts at the hospital, so we really didn’t get to spend much of the actual day together. She ended up calling me up after work and persuaded me to bring takeout up to the hospital from our new favorite Chinese place so we could at least have dinner together, so that was good. Of course, she came home later to find the usual roses and chocolates and other objects of my affection to greet her at the door, long after I went to bed myself. Nothing fancy, but sometimes it’s the little, simple things that can mean just as much…

While she was at work yesterday, and pretty much every day, I tend to do a lot of reflection to try to figure out just how I got to this great place in life that I find myself right now. I’ve certainly entertained my share of life’s challenges, and probably got my swing at some of the more difficult romantic ones of the bunch over the past couple of years, and yet here I am today – head over heels in love with a woman who’s only faults to this point are that she hates doing housework and she refuses to kiss me after I’ve eaten anything containing peanut butter. On the other hand, she believes in me, but also has the guts to stand up to me when I’m full of crap; she’s open-minded and has no problems agreeing to disagree; and we share a sense of humor that can even be a little bit scary at times! We can tell each other just about anything, and actually have – an important sub-note!, and somehow we just seem to really work well together. Many people already have looked at us and said that we make a good team, and I think that’s a good quality to have.

In a few days we’ll have officially passed the 10 month mark, closing in on 1 year, and part of me still looks back and tries to figure out where all of the time went. Well, they may not have all been the absolute happiest of days, but we seemed to work through the worst of them and managed to come out the other side unscathed. I still look to our future together with a smile on my face – a big smile – knowing that I get to spend it with her, and somehow it makes fighting my way through all of the previous nonsense in my life seem worthwhile. If things had gone different, I might not have met Sara, and that’d be a shame because right now I couldn’t imagine it any other way than it is right now – just two honest and decent people, who happen to love each other very much, working our way through life together. At the end of the day, who could really ask for more?

Thanks for a fantastic 10 months so far, and a lifetime of happiness to come, Sara. I love you…
