A Date on a Very Special Day

Today was the second anniversary of the greatest day of my life. Two years ago today, The Wife and I took a horse-drawn carriage ride through downtown Fargo, ND and several parks on our way from our wedding to our reception. All our best friends were there, and it was a day of pure heaven, followed by a week of bliss at the lake cabin.

At that time, we didn't know for sure we would be fostering, that we would be moving out of the city, or really what we were going to be doing. We just knew that whatever it was, we would be doing it together and supporting each other, and that was enough.

It still is.

Tonight Mom and Dad came to watch things while we stole away for our first evening out alone together in a couple months (thank you whoever decided it would be a good idea to tell us "Angel" came with PCA services but didn't mention it would take months to set up). We ate Mexican food, took in a movie ("RV" isn't nearly as lame as it looked on paper) and, of course, shopped at WalMart. No visitation by cupid could be complete without trying to see if you can snag a bargain, no?

And she only called home to check up on things twice. I was proud. And "Angel" was only able to con Mom out of an extra 20 or 30 minutes of uptime. I was proud of both of them, too. Mom for not losing her foster training after several years and "Angel" for doing so well against her. I don't recall doing that well very often myself. She was tough to game.

None of it was very romantic, but it was pure bliss just the same to be alone with my best friend for a time. Both of us are private people and we both need time alone to be really healthy. We got it tonight, and while we didn't do anything that special, it was a time to remember nonetheless.

Love you, lady.
