Tomorrow is a great day. Tomorrow marks two years of the blissfulness that comes from dating T-roy. I've been super busy (I know you are not surprised) and I had really meant to do something/buy something really special to show my affection to the greatest guy in the world (yes, Troy). But I didn't (but, as a side note, did get an awesomely perfect engagement party dress with the help of the greatest friend in the world, Kathi...pics to follow later). But really, tonight we are going back to the place where it all began....Paintin and Kiln Time...our first "real" date. They are going out of business at the end of the month so it is just perfect timing for us to bid farewell to Mary and Lynn, and at the same time celebrate our undying love for each other (did anyone just throw up after that last sentence???)
So, in an effort to redeem myself on the not-buying-the-coolest-i-love-you gift, I decided that it was just as fitting to proclaim to the whole world how much T-roy really means to me (okay, I'll just proclaim it you guys who already know how much I like him).
Seriously, in all my joking there is some true love going on here people. It is not often that we get to say we found exactly what we were looking for. It is not often that we are able to tell the world that we found someone who is so perfectly perfect. It is not often that we get to tell someone we love them and get goose pimples every single time we say it...even 2 years later. And, it is not often that we have someone in our life who changes our life in some profound way. But, it is even better when we get to see that person's smiling face each and every single day.
I have all of that in Troy. And even more. Still, 2 years later, I remember exactly what his smile looked like the first time I saw him. Still, 2 years later, I can stare at him for hours and think "how did I catch this?" Still, 2 years later, I think he's just as hot as that night he walked in Cheddars. And still, 2 years later, I find myself wondering what I did to deserve him.
There are so many positives that he's made in my life...learning to live debt free, learning to take chances and be a little risky, learing to just take it easy sometimes...even when I don't want to. And above all, I quit smoking because of him. And I learned how to run. And I learned how much I loved it.
I cannot possibly imagine where I would be at right now if I hadn't found him. And in another 442 days I get to become Mrs. Troy. And while the reality of that has not, and I'm sure will not, set in for some time, I can't possibly imagine how my life could get any better. Not because of something great and wonderful that I've done, but because of the great and wonderful things Troy has done to make my life better.
And still, I ask, how in the world did all those girls let him get away????
I love you Troy...thanks for the best two years of my life!
