give me more lovin' from the very start
piece me back together when i fall apart,
tell me things you never even tell your closest friends-
make me feel good when I hurt so bad- best that i've had
i'm so glad i've found you
love bein' around you

you make it easy, as easy as 1,2- 1,2,3,4
there's only 1 thing 2 do 3 words 4 you (i love you) i love you
there's only 1 way 2 say those 3 words and that's what i'll do (i love you)
i love you.

-plain white t's

today, M and i have been married 4 years. count 'em:


i just have to say this: i feel like i don't brag on M as much as i should.
because i should.
a lot.
he puts up with me.
crazy lady. spicy cuban. feisty woman.
e-v-e-r-y .. s-i-n-g-l-e .. d-a-y.
which let me tell no small thing.

so i'd like to take a brag moment...
i wanna share with you the cutest little thing he did for me (to demonstrate his cuteness) on the last day of school a couple of weeks ago.

so it's really early. like 7 am early.
and i get in my car.
if you remember, i was emotional.
and a little stressed.
and did i mention i was emotional?

so back to the car...
i get in and notice...there's this little card on the steering wheel.
i pull it out and read it.
(insert some mushy stuff here).
he then tells me he had made me a cd with all the songs that reminded him of me. i turn on the car...that really cute song where the guy sings "they call her love, love, love, love, love" comes on...and i just lose it. tears stream down my face...other songs were that 1-2-3-4 song by plain white t's and chris brown's forever, which, let's be real, you can't NOT dance to that one...and many other cute songs. he then said in his note not to listen to number 8 till i was on my way home. i was so curious. but i loooovvvee surprises, so i obeyed. on my way home, i put on number 8, and it was: "school's out for summer." i cranked up the volume so loud on that one...even though i confess, i'm no classic rock fan . he told me that he and E were waiting to give me a big hug and rock out to number 8 on guitar hero when i got home.

cute, huh?
mega cute in my opinion.
made me feel like i was in high school again.
and that's how our love is.
how i love my thoughtful M.
he's been like that from day one.

(day one below)

(day one thousand four hundred sixty below (today...ok, well, a week ago, but you get the idea)):

our life together now is so much sweeter and better and crazier than i ever would have imagined it would be. we constantly are picking up messes, we often wonder how we're going to pay the bills, we have tons of inside jokes and quote movie lines and tv show lines constantly to each other, we talk about how cute E is a minimum of 10 times a day, we've become part of each other's families and understand each other a little better than we did before...and yet don't understand each other more than we did before, we hug often, we've made wonderful friends who we love to make memories with, we love yummy food, we sometimes get under each other's when he doesn't take the garbage out, and we love every minute of it because it's all done together.

happy anniversary, M.
4 years down, eternity to go.
gives me butterflies to think about it.
