Some Kind of Wonderful

Chuck and I have been together for seven years today.


Us then:





Us now:



We're a little older and a little wider, erm, I mean wiser. But we're still happy.


Chuckles and I are awesome together for a lot of reasons.


1) We like to go on adventures. I've been places with him that this Canadian never thought she would ever get to go to.


Standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.



Chuck on the back steps of Thomas Jefferson's 'Monticello' in Virginia




Spelunking (oh, how I love that word) in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky.



2) Chuckles loves me even though I'm a complete weirdo. He lets me be exactly who I am. I can burst out into song and dance in the middle of the grocery store and he doesn't bat an eyelash. I swear like a sailor. I'm loud and opinionated. He accepts everything and loves me more for it.








3) I admire Chuckles because he doesn't give a shit about what people think of him. He does crazy things because he knows it will make me laugh. He lets me post pictures of him doing silly things all over the internet. I love hearing other people say, "I love Chuck." It's awesome to have a husband that everybody likes, instead of the other way around.










4) We both like the 'little things' in life.


Hanging out with good  friends....


The same music...



Going for picnics in the park...


Visiting museums....



Enjoying sunsets from our back porch...


Finding a cool place to enjoy the outdoors and take a picture...



Or even going on a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, impromptu canoe trip.



5) Chuckles loves me for what I strongly believe in...




....And I love Chuckles for what he strongly believes in (*cough*even though the Browns always lose*cough*).



There's no one that I'd rather be with more. Even though both of us aren't easy to live with. I challenge him, he challenges me. We're both challenged. (hehe)

I've been with him through lung cancer. And his oldest daughter's wedding. I don't know which was more stressful!

I think the wedding.



Happy 7 years, Chuckles. Can't believe it's been that long already.

*mwah*

Hi Kyna,

Sorry, gwirrel, I'm not commenting on your post, but I just cannot figure out for the life of me to write MY OWN post!

Kyna and Chuck:

I'm so glad you two are so happy! I always enjoy reading about your latest shenanigans!

Happy Anniversary, you two! It flies by, hey. We just celebrated our 10th, and I must say, there is a lot of joy (and fun!) being with the right one. ;)

Congratulations!

Good on ya girl. That was beautiful to read. I love the way you never let a little shmaltz get in the way of expressing your love for the boy.

Kyna said...

Thank you everyone, we had a great day! Did the picnic things even though it was kind of chilly out, went out for a nice seafood dinner and ended with a marathon of watching the show 'Supernatural'.

Dinner was especially fun because our waiter was flirting with Chuck the whole time. I was laughing and teasing him about it, and he said, 'I can't help it. Gay dudes love me.'

Kooky Girl said...

Happy Anniversary to you both. Here's to your next seven! :o) All the best, Kg.

Woot! Happy Anniversary you two! You really are adorable together, and you work so well together especially because you accept each other. Mr. CVF and I are pushing 24 years together. The time flies fast. You've clearly already figured out the keys to a successful relationship. Accept each other, and don't try to change one another, laugh together, and AT each other, and never, ever take yourselves too seriously (not that I have much fear of that ;). Here's to many, many more!
