Keepin' It Real!
JC and I have been married ten years now. Wednesday was our anniversary. We had a real romantic evening
checking email, job searching, doing dishes, playing Battlefield2 . For the first time EVER since having kids, we have no kids at home all night tonight. It's just the two of us. My sister in law took them for the night. Let me tell ya, there's a party going on here! We had a romantic dinner by candle light soup and grilled cheese sandwiches by computer light, there's been dancing with the broom as I swept the kitchen floor, Sweet nothings being whispered JC talking to his gaming clan about sound cards, Romantic movies playing Company of Heroes video game match playbacks playing, I tell you we really know how to keep the romance alive, don't cha think. I mean we haven't strayed too far from where we started ten years ago. Our dates usually consisted of dancing cheek to cheek under the stars raking or baling hay in the middle of the night or going to poetry readings and romantic restaurants going to institute and to Carrows. He proposed to me during half time of a Chicago Bulls game. It was the epitome of romantic gestures. He got down on one knee in front of millions of people, expressed his love and devotion to me, told me how I was more beautiful than a fall sunset.... He slipped a ring box in my hand as we laid on the couch in his living room. No words. No asking. No drama....there was a brief kiss that was interrupted by half time ending. That is the way we roll, it has been from day one. Like living in a romance novel. *puking*. Just keeping it real!
