Last week, I told you how Wookie and I met eight years ago on Christmas after about a week of emailing through Match.com. I mentioned that he told me that he loved me on that first date.
What I didn’t tell you is that three days later I yelled at him because he kept saying it and I thought it was a little creepy.
We’d been together almost constantly since we met—taking breaks only to go to work. As I said last week, I was not one to believe in love at first site. I was not used to someone being as attentive as Wookie was towards me. It all seemed too good to be true and, though I was happy, I was also waiting for the other shoe to drop.
For New Years Eve we decided to go out to the movies. We both love Steve Martin so we went to see Cheaper by the Dozen. That's when everything changed for me. Sitting in the dark, watching Wookie's face as he laughed, I knew...he was everthing he appeared to be. And I loved him too.
|I LOVE how this man laughs!|
Later that night, we stood huddled on the Jersey side of the Hudson River counting down to midnight. As the new year rolled in we could actually hear the cheers erupt from the crowd gathered in times square.
"I love you too." I told him.
We've welcomed every new year since, together.
Happy New Year everyone!
