Sometime in the summer G and I were in the car singing along to the radio--one of our fave pastimes. "5 long years" by Colin James came on and I sang along to it somewhat absentmindedly thinking...hmmmm it's our 5 year anniversary this fall...I will post this on Facebook/the blog as my Happy Anniversary tribute. Then I never thought about it again until today. So I pulled up the Youtube of the song to listen to it and then realized....this is NOT what I thought this song was about at ALL. I now realize that the story is that they broke up 5 years ago....and he hasn't seen her loving eyes since then and it's sad cause he still loves her just the same. Not quite the smushie lovey vibe I was going for with the whole post. But 1) it's funny and 2) it's a great song, so I am posting it anyway. I also should probably change the words, but "It's been 5 awesome years and I love you even more" doesn't quite have the same ring to it but then again I don't claim to be a song writer.
Have a listen and a laugh
And now to fill the cheesy love blog quota for the year:
Dearest sweet husband babe/Old Man, (with too many other nicknames to fill out here),
While these have definitely been the best 5 years of my life, the past few months have stood out as two of the best. Becoming your wife has made me so happy as we officially start our family as the Walsh's. Thank you for being you, and for loving me the way you do. I know with no doubt that we were made for each other and I am thankful every day that we found each other. You drive me absolutely bonkers at times, (and I am sure I do the same) but I would never change it for the world. I look forward to each new milestone we reach...and yes, after this year we can just start celebrating our wedding anniversary and not also our dating one...One less card to buy ;)
I love you to the moon and back,
Your lil Wife /Old Lady (insert other nicknames here)

I love that quote...but I do feel that sometimes gazing at each other is just what love needs.
