For many years, I wondered. How would I know when I met “the one”? How could I be sure that when I got married again, I would do it right? I didn’t want to mess up again. I wanted to be sure. Sure, when you are a Libra that weighs and analyzes everything, can be a very difficult thing to find. There are not too many “sure things” in my lift – that is why I somedays make quick decisions, because if I mull over things, I will simply never decide.
However, I pretty much knew that Mike was the one from the day I met him. I fought it for awhile even, because I had been in a bad relationship for several years, and even after a year-long hiatus from dating, I was … scared. But you can’t fight a good thing. Even I am not that silly.
So here we are, almost at our 6 month wedding anniversary. Just a few weeks away. I’ve never had a moment of regret, and if you know Mike, you understand why. He is nothing short of fabulous. But it’s actually the little things that often are truly telling of a person’s character. I said to Ann this summer while we were in London that Mike was truly special because he stops and waits for me to take pictures. I first discovered this wonderful trait in him when we went to Galveston last summer, and he stopped the car not just once, but twice in the same day to let me take photographs.
As I posted the Mile Zero photo earlier tonight, it brought back those memories once again. Mike is so patient when we travel together, sometimes even pointing out things that I might want to photograph. He never complains, even when I wander off to get just the right shot. And when we pass by something that I want to capture in a picture, he stops the car for me.
You just thought I was a lucky woman for having such a fabulous husband. Really, you have no idea… As I go through and update Pixelog daily, it is a lot of fun for me because I get to relive a lot of good memories from the past year. It’s been a whirlwind – from us getting engaged, to planning the wedding, to buying the house, to the wedding itself, our honeymoon, and the first 6 months of married life. Going through these photos gives me a chance to remember the little moments. It’s a nice feeling – I hope you enjoy sharing the memories with us.
