Anniversary Waltz

Our wedding cake, made by Muncher's Bakery
Two years ago, I got married. After my last relationship fell to pieces I wasn't really sure I wanted to start dating again but then I saw Audrey's profile on Yahoo! and from her picture I could tell she was attractive and, doing something that violated every fiber in my body, found her on MySpace and messaged her. We talked for a while but wanted to skip over the "online dating" thing and asked her out on a real date. We didn't really know where to go so we wound up going to Yello Sub, a popular sandwich spot in Lawrence, and while we ate we watched the Primary Presidential Election. Yes, we talked about politics on our first date. Probably not the best strategy but we're similar in political convictions so I think in a way it helped. Our date was pretty much over after that and she went back home to Topeka but we continued talking online. I began spending more time going to her place after work and on the weekends. I proposed to her in June and we made plans to move in together, which we did in September.

All that happened within the relatively short timeframe of seven months. In those seven months, a lot of stuff changed and all of it for the better. Audrey is my best friend and my biggest supporter, with whatever I do. She stands beside me and I love her more each and every day. She accepted that I have a son and that I have custody of him which is something I don't think my other girlfriends were accepting of. Audrey is one of the main reasons I get up in the morning. She is the main reason I really do anything

To me, she is perfect. Her beautiful smile, her beautiful eyes, everything about her brighten my day and even though we've only been married for two years, it's been the best two years of my life and I look forward to many, many more.
