Eleven years ago today...

..I kissed the only man I'll ever love for the very first time.

To this:

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You’ll come apart and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what’s not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew

A stranger’s light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew
I think it’s strange you never knew

--Mazzy Star, "Fade Into You"

I'm the luckiest girl in the world to be able to spend every day with my best friend and my lover, to still look at you in amazement that you and I are still joined at the hip after 3 colleges, 2 graduate schools, and 1 tour in the army. Not to mention two moves across the country, chronic illness, and a crazy allergic puppy.

Thanks for making the last eleven years wonderful, even when everything else was miserable.

That is one of the nicest and most sincere tributes I have *ever* read.

Bless you BOTH!

You remember the day you first kissed your husband? I'm lucky if I remember our anniversary.

Beautiful! I still remember the day my husband and I started officially 'going out'. Ten years next week. Time flies!

You weren't exaggerating when you said "Fade into You" was your song, huh? Congratulations!
