Hello to anyone who's still here!

I know I haven't posted in over eight months. I'm mostly over on Facebook now, but I couldn't let today go by without a post to dear old LiveJournal, where it all began for my beloved [livejournal.com profile] beowabbit and me.

Nearly 11 years ago, we met for the first time at a Thanksgiving dinner, but didn't get to interact much because we were at opposite ends of the table. Over the next few months, we somehow got on each other's LJ friendslists, but it wasn't until the following August 10th that we went on our first real date.

Exactly ten years later, we are more in love than ever, and I am the luckiest girl in the world. He is the home of my soul, and the light of my path in life. I never thought something so wonderful would ever come into my life, but there you go. :-)

Tonight we will celebrate at our special restaurant in the North End. Today is the first rain we've had after a 2-month drought, so we might have to eat inside, but that's fine. Anywhere we're together is happy!

Love you forever and always, my dearest darling [livejournal.com profile] beowabbit!

Five Years

This past Sunday, before a small group of friends who joined us for a private party at our favorite North End restaurant, I said these words to my precious, beloved [livejournal.com profile] beowabbit:

When I look into your eyes, my heart feels the joy of a puppy, or the peacefulness of a swan, or the cheerful mischief of a blue jay, or the loving protectiveness of a mare.

In this life you will feel no rain, for I will be sanctuary for you. In this life you will feel no cold, for I will warm you always. In this life there will be no isolation for you, for my heart stays with you wherever you go. In this life there will be no loneliness for you, for I will be eternally by your side.

Thank you, my darling, for five beautiful years of love, and so many more ahead!

I Love Him

I feel overflowing gratitude for my darling [livejournal.com profile] beowabbit and his love, and for the optimism that radiates from him and spreads to others. I say this all the time, but I feel it all the time -- he can make any situation seem more manageable and less negative just by holding me in his arms. Knowing that he loves me makes me often feel like I have the heart of a lion inside me. Especially when he calls me "Lambkin."

I love you, my dear and wonderful darling. You are joy embodied.

This post is public so that everyone in the world can see it.

Who has a sweetie who gives her a dozen long-stemmed roses, just because?

Who is the luckiest girl in the world? :-)

Have you ever accidentally said "Love you!" at the end of a business call? I've absent-mindedly done it a handful of times in my life and it's mortifying, even though it really should just be something humorous to laugh about.

It just now happened to a vendor who I was ordering supplies from on the phone. The conversation ended with me saying "Okay, thanks much!" and her saying "Okay, love you!" Then a brief awkward silence before she hung right up. I could just feel the ohmygod waves through the phone.

But, I guess it's nice to know that when that happens, it means the person has someone(s) in their life who they say "I love you" to often enough that it's become second nature.




For me?

This morning I logged on and found a beautiful red rose from my darling. I can't even express how big a smile it put on my face. Having spent so much of my life without love or even the faintest prospect of it, I can never take love for granted, and an LJ rose from the sweetest wabbit in the world makes my little heart sing.

Jay, I love you. Thank you for being in my life, and thank you for being who you are.

ROME (Reuters) - Call it the eternal embrace.

Archaeologists in Italy have discovered a couple buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, hugging each other.

"It's an extraordinary case," said Elena Menotti, who led the team on their dig near the northern city of Mantova.

"There has not been a double burial found in the Neolithic period, much less two people hugging -- and they really are hugging."

Menotti said she believed the two, almost certainly a man and a woman although that needs to be confirmed, died young because their teeth were mostly intact and not worn down.

"I must say that when we discovered it, we all became very excited. I've been doing this job for 25 years. I've done digs at Pompeii, all the famous sites," she told Reuters.

"But I've never been so moved because this is the discovery of something special."

A laboratory will now try to determine the couple's age at the time of death and how long they had been buried.

I find this a very moving image, actually. In fact, it might make the perfect valentine for a person of a certain type.

But at the same time, it makes me all sad and emo. Not likely that somebody in their day arranged them like that if they were already dead, so they might have been clinging to each other as they were dying. Did they freeze to death? Were they poisoned? Was it a double suicide? Are they Neolithic Romeo and Juliet? Am I just an over-imaginative idiot who can't leave anything alone without speculating about it uncontrollably?

In any case, it's a very touching image, to me. Happy Valentines Day. :-)
