happy valentine's day, y'all
hen I consider that this summer will mark the two year anniversary of meeting welfy, it's no less mind-boggling to me than those first couple of months. It would be too easy to say that, due the nature of my job, things simply move on a slower time-scale for us, never allowing us to become too comfortable, and keeping things fresh. I suppose it is a factor.

But it's more than that.

Never has there been anyone this late in the game I can still talk to for hours on the phone or in chat, about everything important and nothing at all. Never has anyone understood me on all the levels that matter. Never has anyone been so giving of their time, energy, love and affection for me and for "us". Never has anyone tolerated my goofiness so much, in fact, never has anyone encouraged it and joined me in it. Never has anyone been so devoted to me. These, and so many other things which words can't describe, are the things she gives me that makes me love her so much.

On top of that she's an intellectual equal, but smarter than me becuase she's more in touch with her feelings. She's empathetic, caring, and sentimental sometimes to a fault. She's not only immensely creative in anything she undertakes; she's better at it than most but too humble to ever admit it. She can be hysterically funny, with a dark sense of humor that few people ever get to see. Her taste in anything can run from unironic kitcsh to classic without adding any undue importance to the former or overblown pretentiousness to the latter. She has a sense of adventure in everything she does that's intoxicating and contagious. She's absolutely feminine without being prissy. She's stunningly beautiful in an unconventional way and can be dangerously sexy when she's not too self-conscious to let herself go.

I love you, Erin. I'm so lucky to have you in my life that every day feels like a miracle.

...and for the rest of you, as always... fuck 'em if you got 'em.

That picture is incredibly sexy.

I love how the Golden Arches are resting above your heads, as though they were blessing your smoochy union.

If you look closer, Welf actually has a McDonald's location on her nose. They're EVERYWHERE.

And when were you two in Vegas?!?!?

Last May, Welf rode with me for an entire month. We got to spend half a day in Vegas. Good times.

Awwwwwww..*sniff,sniff* That was so mushy!! ;)

This is called "frugal romantic".

gorgeous photo and sentiment. happy v day to you both. =)

*sniff* yeah, the fuck 'em if you got 'em sentiment gets me every time. ;-)

I love this entry. Pure, honest, raw love, written well, gets me every time. Thank you for sharing it with the rest of us.

Happy V-Day to you both. Every day.

Thank you for the kind words. It's hard to translate the feelings inside to words on a page, and I'm not often the most introspective or "flowery" types of writers so the validation is appreciated. Happy Valentine's Day to you and your hubby.

What a great photo. So romantic.

And as always, I plan to.

It's like a low-rent Bogart & Bergman on the tarmac.


For some strange reason, that picture of you two together makes me want to eat something low-sodium and rent "Super Size Me".

Hehehe, well, I don't be hate'n on the McDs. Cheap, fast, and tasty. That's hard to beat when you're on the road all the time.

Hey, I finally got 'em now, so this is the first year in however many now that I don't feel like punching you in the face for your annual V-Day greeting.

Well written, great photo.

This makes only the third year I've offered the sentiment. The first year I made it was partially out of bitterness for not having my own, either.

...and thank you.

Soopa, between the Welfy and yourself, whenever I get "knocked down" about love hardships. I remember how lucky some friends of mine are, like you two and just smile at others in love.

Beautiful post, my friend.

Aww thanks. And I am lucky. So, so lucky.

Am I supposed to comment on this? I always feel weird replying to entries about me.

Thank you.

I love you.
I love you
I love you.

I put some strawberries in the freezer for you. :^)

I love you, too. Now you know why half the time if I even do comment on an entry you've written about me it's usually to crack a joke or to comment to someone else. It is weird.

I have really, really enjoyed the entries welfy has made for therealljidol.

The story of the two of you is almost unbelievable. I wish you both many more happy summer anniversaries. Two isn't enough.

Awww, thanks so much. I hope there are many, many more as well.
