12 Years In a Picture

Although I’m not 100% on the exact date about 12 years ago round this time I met this woman online (Blackplanet.com to be exact for those that were on it) and this was one of the first pictures of her that I saw and I was smitten, you know it’s real when you say smitten. I kept this pic as my desktop screensaver on my computer cause she was like a fantasy to me, didn’t think it would happen for me, didn’t think I would get her but the heavens smiled on me and brought her right on in. As I look at this picture now I’m still in sheer amazement at how not a damn thing has changed. Not the way I look at her, not the way I’m insanely attracted to her (too much at times which is probably why we have 3 kids and I’m trying to get this vasectomy lol) but she was and still is breathtaking to me. I stared at this pic sometimes for minutes on end, just imagining one day being able to touch her, to hear her talk, smell her fragrance and I’m lucky enough to be able to do that everyday now for the rest of my life. She has put up with me for 12 years, no splits, no breaks, no time off, rarely any arguments (most were my fault anyway I’ll admit that) and I’m so thankful for that. I was moving from Georgia back to NJ when we met online so luck was in my favor at that time and once I got back…fate did the rest. So as we approach our 8 year wedding anniversary in like 2 weeks I wanted to be sure to properly appreciate where it all began….with this picture, thanks for listening….1
