One day, she stopped by to see me before flying home to Albuquerque and she had the biggest grin on her face. I knew what she was about to tell me…she met someone. And though they met in quite the unconventional way, they spent the next few years dating and getting to know each other. It was obvious they were happy.
She wanted to get married but never pushed the subject. In January, she told me that they were going to get married on February 29th in Las Vegas. Wait, what?! They weren’t even engaged. Well, they did get married and their wedding was perfectly them.
I’ve been observing them ever since we all started hanging out together. This time, I noticed something different. They are stronger. They are blissfully happier. They aren’t afraid to show the world they love each other. Watching them together just made me giddy. Because seeing raw love being displayed so naturally is something I can never get over.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives, for telling me “I told you so” when it is needed, and for being such a great example of how a relationship should work. I’m happy that we have remained friends for so long. Miss the two of you so much!
