This picture isn’t from our best night. I don’t honestly remember if this was taken before I was a cobag or after I apologized for being one. I like to think that this was my way of saying sorry for having a snit, but I can’t remember when I did the right thing and re-prioritized my night for Shannon. That being said, that picture is fairly close to my point–
Shannon’s positively beautiful, even dressed in 80s costume, and she makes me so giddy that I look goofy.
I didn’t think that I would meet the girl of my dreams through blogging, but I did. I honestly was half-way towards giving up and deciding to become a work-a-holic. Instead, as AG put it, “I’m the happiest I have ever been since before I lost my parents.” I am (consistently) the happiest I have been since college. It is wonderful to be challenged, supported and taken care of all at the same time. It is simply amazing to plot and plan goals with someone, even if the goals are about running away to South America to start a commune.
I don’t admit how much Shannon has improved my life, nor do I come close to thanking her for it. Since I made a big deal about post 300, I figure I should make an even bigger deal about Shannon. She makes my every aspect of my life infinitely better, even the parts I would sooner give up on.
I have other plans to show her how much I care about her–but those are not for blog-postings. At least, not yet.
