Happy Anniversary, Baby…

…got you on my..miiiiiiiind.

(Thank you Little River Band.)


Anniversary.  A silly word the more you say it over and over.   I’ve never celebrated an anniversary before (unless you want to count birthdays as ANNIVERSARIES of our birth days and be all technical).  My longest relationship is one year, and consequently, that’s the relationship I am in now…with the love of my life, best friend, man I am going to MARRY (53 days!).

It’s not that I want to celebrate this anniversary every year for the rest of our lives.  Just this once though, before we remember 9.29.13 forever, I want to celebrate 8.6.12.  I met Benjamen Wesley Risinger on Twitter through a mutual Twitter buddy.  We became fast friends after meeting for an east side pub crawl (meeting the man you will marry in a poodle skirt? Priceless.), and have been nearly inseparable since.


He’s my best friend, my confidant, the person I can go to when I feel like the rest of the world is against me.  We can laugh, we can cry. He lets me plan when he doesn’t want to plan.  We complement each other well, diffuse each other when necessary, allow each other to watch their guilty pleasure TV (Dr. Who for him, Friends for me), and he is ALWAYS telling me how much he loves me.


Life has been turned upside down since meeting him October 22, 2011.  And life has flown by and been a complete whirlwind of love since August 6th, 2012 when he (finally!) asked me to be his girlfriend (officially!).


I love you, Benjamen.  And just this once, happy (dating) anniversary!
