1095 Days

Three years ago today, a wonderful romance started over a pot of fondue and a couple glasses of wine. We started with cheese, in four months we'll end with cheers. I guess it'll be more of a beginning than an end, but you get where I'm going.

I had forgotten until I went back and read this post that Mr. Wonderful made a joke about us being married on our first date. So last night, as a friend of ours was talking about how he may have met the girl he's going to marry, I asked Mr. W when he knew that I was The One.

"Was it after our trip to San Francisco?" I guessed.

That was our first weekend away together—to a wine festival in the city. We'd been dating two and a half months by that point and I was 100% sure I was crazy about him. Even though he knew he might be falling for me, he wouldn't say the words for another six months.

"Yeah, I think I knew because you didn't bug me," he replied.

Ah yes, that's what love is. The winning recipe for an engagement ring: don't bug them. You don't have to be witty or pretty or interesting. Just refrain from bugging.

Good thing he was nice to me when he took me out for a schmancy dinner at Spago Monday night...

Happy 3rd Anniversary to my other half. :* :* :*

Happy anniversary, Pumpkin. I look forward to 50 more years of you not bugging me too much.

happy three year anniversary to you love birds!

LesleyG said...

Time flies when someone's not annoying the crap out of you, eh? :) Happy three years!

Danielle said...

Heres to many more happy anniversaries!

You know, if you stop and think about it, that's a damned big compliment.

My husband doesn't bug me too much either. That may be the heart of the matter right there.

Ha.

Mel Heth said...

Brookem - Haha thank you. :)

LesleyG - Apparently so! Although the 6 months he was in Europe last year seemed to move at a glacial pace.

Danielle - Thank you! Hopefully marriage won't start up a new "bugging" phenomenon.

YGTBKM - Okay maybe there is something to this. When lust starts to fade, at least we'll have non-bugging on our sides...

Seriously, not bugging another person is a big deal. Tons of people bug me but Mr. Darcy only bugs me sometimes so I think I will keep him.

Congrats on 3 yrs!
