I can NOT believe I'm posting this... not to mention all the rejects which will be in the 52 Weeks set as soon as I finish typing this. If anyone asks, I'm going to plead insanity induced by Valentine's Day. Take my word for it... this is the last time you'll be seeing me offer myself up as soft core porn!
For the most part... I've been pretty darned lucky in love. Came of age in the 70s and had my share of romantic adventures. Had a lovely 15 year relationship with the man who's still my housemate.... now going on 22 years of living together. How great is THAT? I even have SOME fond memories of the man known to my friends as "Wes- the bastard".
Now though, after 6 years by myself, and after 3 years of being in love with him when he didn't think he could be in love with me, I'm finally in a relationship with the person I've always been meant to be with. Sounds sappy, I know... like something out of a dime store novel... but as soon as I met him I knew. He's smart and funny, thoughtful and talented (he's a killer musician and lyricist). irreverent and spiritual, and he can put up with all my weirdnesses. No mean feat! And handsome... did I forget to mention handsome?
So this week, with our first Valentine's Day together, I'm celebrating the fact that, after years of settling for the practical, utilitarian stuff, I finally have a good reason to buy the FUN lingere again.
