Happy 7th Wedding Anniversary and National Eagle Day 😉 darling. I love you. Are you itchy? Is it from the bugs I keep? or the thought of earwigs? Fleas and ticks? nettles? For the record I’m not itchy but if you have one, I’m happy to scratch it anytime, why? because I love you!They say opposites attract but honey, we aren’t opposites and yet here we are attracted to each other, go figure! We do have some very stark differences: Our feelings about throw pillows, how often sheets need changed, painting of bricks, how warm the house should be are a few, but we have some real similarities as well.
Since I used Stark in the last sentence we both love GoT that’s a similarity 😉 more importantly though, we both love to help others either via donation or service and support to animals, to people, to random strangers, to veterans, it doesn’t matter the cause or the person or critter we like to give via random acts or planned charity, walks and climbs etc…. and I love that about us! I really hope we do get to start our dream of a charity someday. We love nature, we love our friends and family – that includes our critters, and our Seahawks and Nascar( Well I love Nascar, you Love Jr & Mikey) , we love love, I mean who doesn’t love love? One love! There are many things similar, but many things different as well, that keeps it spicy and interesting, we make it through with love, support, understanding, mutual respect and even sometimes the agreement to disagree. One thing I love is that we don’t fight… that takes both of us and I know it can’t always be easy with me! But from my side, you make it easy and I love you for it! I love being the Grandpa to your Glam-ma!
My gifts for you this year, of course you’ll probably get flowers and candy (sorry I like candy! ) I also got you an Onyx bracelet and a “Certified” Aran Wool sweater with marriage lines. Sounds strange? Well Here’s why:
The traditional gifts for 7th year of marriage, are Onyx and Wool… maybe the wool is the real reason they call it the 7 year itch! Because I know that I do not have the “itch” that the movie or society implies with that phrase my dear.
The Bracelet – Onyx is worn to defend against negativity, and while we don’t have that in our relationship, It is the traditional gemstone for 7 years of marriage so I’m giving it to you to protect you out in the world when we are apart and for when I am working on my truck or complaining about my aching back 😉 Keep it positive like our love and marriage ( goes together like an horse and carriage…this I tell ya brother.. you can’t have one without….other… enjoy the earworm)
The Sweater – I’m guessing, 99.99999% sure that you don’t have that 7 year itch… so I’m going to give you one! With wool LOL… seriously though the Aran wool is handcrafted with marriage lines to signify the ups and downs of marriage, the only downs we have are shared downs with bad news or disappointments but we’re there for each other always and we share all of our ups and downs. Wool is also known for producing heat and represents warmth, comfort, safety and security , those are things that we both provide for each other and the sweater will be a reminder of that for you for as long as you have it.
I love you honey and I am very thankful to have your love and support for the last 13 years , especially the last 7 in marriage and I look forward to many, many more. I will continue to do my best to make sure you never have to touch a door handle when I am around! I love you , I love you, I love you my love of a lifetime.
Your loving Husband.
