A Year Ago Today...

As my longtime readers know, when I first started this blog I was a hopeless bachelor, convinced that I would continue my singlehood indefinitely. I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I wasn't meant to have a girlfriend. Little did I know there was another (now retired) blogger hundreds of miles away that, despite my over-reliance on toilet humor and curse words, thought I was kinda cool - at least cool enough to meet in person. From there, I was able to charm her with witty telephone banter and my rugged good looks until she decided to take a huge chance and move to "one of those states in the middle". Over the past year, she has endured many things:
  • A brutally long and cold winter full of treacherous roads
  • A lackluster spring
  • A home that was, shall we say, a little rough around the edges
  • A TV regimen that included O'Reilly's nightly "Talking Points" (and my subsequent rage)
  • A great distance between her and her family and friends and beloved beaches of North Carolina
  • My general annoying tendencies, far too numerous to list here
Luckily for me, she has decided to hang in there. I'm so grateful she had the guts to come to a place she barely knew and give it a shot. Whenever I ask what I should blog about, she tells me to blog about how much I love her. Well, your wish is my command.

I love you, Megan. A whole lot. Like, tons. Like, you know how much I love frozen pizza? Way more than that. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store!

I'm surprised that she's hung in there this long. You've got a keeper there, Chris. Don't let go.

One of the things that make life grand - people who love us despite our rough edges and tendency to snore.

Amy said...

I'm still figuring out what you charmed me with.

I said it before and I'll say it again-

She loves German food and beer, plus she lets you keep the beard. You'll never be that lucky again. Hell, most German men can't get that lucky and you'd think that German women would at least tolerate German food.

Bubs said...

Aw, you kids are so sweet.

I remember meeting the both of you last year on your journey north. What a nice afternoon that was.

I'm not even going to be sarcastic or throw around any inuendos... I'm just going to sit here and tear up.

Congrats.
