sap's not only found in trees y'know
bout this time of night, two years ago on this date, I was sitting in a Flying J truckstop in Hubbard, OH talking with welfy face to face for the very first time. We hardly knew one another; we'd only been LiveJournal friends for about two weeks. Over the past 24 months, we found a love in each other that has an unquantifiable depth; we're still falling and have no idea if there's a bottom. We've also formed a bond that is unbreakable. We've had a trying time as of late, but we've rounded the corner. Wounds heal back stronger with tough scars and a welder's bead is stronger than the metals he joins. There's no way I could've known that night what she would begin to mean to me. She's my lover, my mate, my partner in crime. She's my conscience and my vice. She's the sun, moon, stars, and galaxies.

Most of all, she's my best friend.

I love you, Erin. Here's to making year three the best one yet.

You two make me want to stab, seriously.



You know, when ya got a woman who's on the internet... and you write sappy things like this. They really, REALLY dig that shit, dude.


I'm constantly in awe as well.

Congrats to both of you! Happy Anniversary....and enjoy all the coming year brings!

FWIW, I think it's great to see a guy who's willing to be sappy about his partner. Kinda restores my faith in mankind. ;o)

I'm a bit of a romantic at heart. Typically I'm content to just coo whatever I'm feeling to her and be satisfied... other times, I feel like I'm going to burst and want to tell the whole world.

It's certainly not the first time I've ever been sappy in LiveJournal.

It's so refreshing to see real people in love. Thank you for sharing this. Our SOULS need it!

As opposed tooo... fake people in love? Orrrrr real people not in love?

At any rate, thank you. I think there's just a teensy bit of SOMETHING in both Welf and I that likes telling tales of our romance on LiveJournal because, well, it was this place that brought as together and was instrumental in our early courting. A lot of folks have gotten to follow it from the very first flirts. I think all in all, it's kinda neat.

You two are my favorite love story on and off LJland, and it makes my inner incurable romantic positively glow to read your journals, even when the going is tough. I lift a glass to you both, with the toast, "Here's to many more years of growing and loving together. May your days and nights always be blessed."

Thanks Uncle Jungle. I have never been so in love in my freaking life. I'm truly blessed. :)

I'm so happy for you two! May this new year bring more good surprises than last year!

I should've used a straw.

I'm assuming you recognize that photo. :)

You two make such a wonderful couple from everything I'd read. You complete and compliment each other.

I like to think so. We're not only good for each other, we're good TO each other... and that's what makes it so great and why we've formed such a strong bond. I think people forget that sometimes... they get wrapped up in how it's good for them... and just assume that it's good for the other person.

You have to make it good for the other person... and I think Welf and I both do a great job at that. :)

Re: "We've had a trying time as of late, but we've rounded the corner."

Yes, it is a good thing. :)

lossfound recommended your journal to me...do you mind if I add you? (side note: Have to mention this because of the subject of your post--oddly enough, welfy is indirectly how I first "LJ met" lossfound, although she and I don't actually know one another.) :)

New friends are always welcome. :)

Did you just call me fat?


I try and be sweet and this what I get. See what I'm working with here people? Lawd... I'm a saint.

You're kinda sexy when you leave playful comments.

I'll, for once, not quote the fictitious book title which accompanies your icon.

makes my heart swell with joy & goodness.

Completely adorable, happy anniversary!

Your best friend I see how it is you stop getting a little and you forget who I am.

I would assume your husband is your best friend. ;-)
