One Year of Bliss

364 days ago, I walked into Bub's Whiskey Dive with the intention of getting a Guinness and maybe a little conversation before I went down to the beach to lay out. Little did I know that I would be walking into a wonderful future.

I turned around from ordering a drink and bumped into the chest that I now lay my head down on when I go to sleep. I looked up into the handsome face that is now on my mind all the time. I smiled back at the smile that lights up my life and makes my heart leap every time I see it. I looked into the eyes that now look at me with so much love.

Later that night, I danced in the arms that would eventually hold me when I was scared, sad, or lonely. I held a hand that would eventually be the one that strokes my hair when we are lying on the couch. I kissed lips that now kiss me every night and every morning, that whisper words of love to me.

I met a man with a heart, such a heart, that he is opened to me and with that heart, has shown me what LOVE really is. He is kind, brave, funny and charming. He loves me with all that he has and loves me for who I really am.

When he said, "Hi, my name is Loren." I heard the voice that would tell me he loved me and wanted to be with me forever.

He dances me around the living room.

He sang silly Christmas carols with me when I was loopy and scared in the ER.

He shakes his head and laughs when I am clumsy, ditzy and forgetful.

He cuddles me up every night and pretends to be interested in Big Brother because I like it.

He always kisses me before he goes out surfing.

We have a secret language.

It's always the kitty, never me.

He was patient and forgiving when I was confused and acting dumb. For this alone, I am forever grateful.

He played all of my favorite songs on the jukebox to prove how much he really knows me.

Our one year anniversary is tomorrow and I can honestly say that this has been the best year of my life. Meeting and falling in love with Loren has changed my outlook on life and love. I know now what true love, what true devotion and what true partnership is.

He is my love, my life, my best friend. He is my heart, my pulse, the very breath in my lungs. I am one half of a whole now and I would be lost, utterly lost, without him.

I love you baby baby. This is just the first year of many.

Our song...

Better Together by Jack Johnson

There's no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing
But I can try for your heart,
our dreams, and they are made out of real things
like a shoebox of photographs
with sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer
at least for most of the questions in my heart, like
Why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy and
sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing, it's always better when we're together

Mmmm, It's always better when we're together
Yeah we'll look at them stars and we're together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah it's always better when we're together

And all of these moments
just might find their way into my dreams tonight,
But I know that they'll be gone
when the morning light sings
and brings new things
for tomorrow night you see
that they'll be gone too,
too many things I have to do
But if all of these dreams might find their way
into my day to day scene
I'd be under the impression
i was somewhere in between
With only two,
Just me and you,
Not so many things we got to do
or places we got to be
We'll sit beneath the mango tree, now,

Yeah It's always better when we're together
Mmmm, we're somewhere in between together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, it's always better when we're together

I believe in memories
they look so, so pretty when I sleep
Hey now, and when I wake up,
you look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time,
There is no, no song I could sing
and there is no combination of words I could say
but I will still tell you one thing
We're Better together
