Transcript of Anniversary
We've been together for one year now, and it has flown
by. Looking back on our year together always makes me so happy; we've had so many great times...
(I know this was before we started dating, but it counts)
(December 2, 2010)
You found me on Facebook
and I saw how beautiful you were (you've only become more beautiful as we have grown closer
Fast forward a little bit...
You came over to my house for the first time. I talked a lot, and you didn't say a single word!
We talked for a while...a really long while! Mostly over Skype, Facebook, and texting. You were dating Tony, and I was getting played by Jade, but it eventually became obvious that we liked each other, and that made me really, really happy!
(That's you on my couch
I was so worried that I made a bad first impression because you didn't say anything! >.<
Eventually, we *finally* arranged for you to come back over!
'Bout time, lady!
*Nervous nervous nervous*
(September 16, 2011)
That Amazing Night (TAN)
You came over and actually stayed the night! My awful attempts at being smooth payed off and I had the most beautiful girl in the world in my bed with me!
Wanna talk about nerves?
You introduced me to Postulio, and without knowing it, we had started our "family!"
(You did a much better job of talking to me this time, just like you promised you would!)
We stayed up ALL night together!
You let me nerd out to you!
Our hands kept creepin' closer to one antother, inch by inch.
We both were 100% aware of what was going on! We didn't have to say anything or give any hints. We just *knew*
Eventually, our fingers were entwined, and it was the best feeling I had ever experienced in my life.
Okay, so holding your hands is still one of the best feelings ever...
Somehow, and I'm not sure how I did it, I was brave enough to kiss you. (I wasn't going to have the most amazing lady in the world in my bed and NOT go for it, was I?!)
The surprising part?
YOU KISSED ME BACK!
I had never felt a better feeling. To this day, I cannot describe it. I had never been as happy as I was in that moment.
It. Was. Amazing.
We held hands, kissed, and had what I still consider to be the most romantic night of my life that night.
After it was all said and done, and we were ready to break the mutual gaze our eyes had long enough to sleep, we cuddled together all night.
But...then something happened...
We stopped talking for a while. I thought everything was going to go downhill, and I was really, really scared.
(November 23, 2011)
You came back over, and it was really, really awkward.
I was worried that what we had was ruined, and I hated it!
(Thanksgiving Day, 2011)
You came back over, and I was determined to fix things this time! You sat on my couch and I kept finding ways to get closer and closer to you until I was able to grab your hand, hoping that you'd embrace mine...
I hadn't lost the girl of my dreams! I was on top of the world!
You started coming over a lot!
A LOT A LOT!
It was a regular thing! I regularly amazing and perfect thing! WE HAD A THING!
I was having the BEST time of my life! You were coming over so often that my family started to question things. Eventually, Darien and Myiah decided to verbalize these questions with "so...are you two dating or what?" You and I gave each other a pretty silly look!
We both decided that we should PROBABLY have an answer ready for when we were asked those types of questions, so I asked you what you would like for the answer to be...
(December 9, 2011)
And we agreed on "yes!" Immediately after, we had our very first kiss as a couple, and we began what would become the most amazing year of my life.
Within this year, we've done so much, and we've done all of it *together*!
We went to IHOP together and played hockey together!
We went ice skating together!
We fell *in love* together.
(This is my favorite one, for the record)
We went to the beach together...TWICE!
We've taken my sisters to the park together
And we've gone on SO many Wendy's runs together!
I can't even imagine how many houses we've designed at Lowe's together!
(I can't wait to actually have our own!)
We've gone on several lovely walks together
And we've watched The Lord of the Rings together!!!
(One day, I want to give YOU a ring!)
We've daydreamed about college life together
And we've daydreamed about having kids together
(You're going to be such a fantastic mom, beautiful!)
We've daydreamed about growing old together
(And you'll still be the most beautiful woman in the world)
We've made love together
(Let's not forget the rougher side...)
All of these things are so absolutely important to me...
But there *is* a key word in all of them
Because no matter what we've been through...
the ride has
been at times...
We have always worked *together*
You have always been my teammate, Lindsey.
You have always been my partner in crime
You've been my right-hand...whatever since the very beginning.
Since December 9, 2011...
You have been the pika to my chu
The Scooby to my Doo
My absolute BEST FRIEND
(who I can have sex with and it isn't awkward...thanks for that!)
And I promise
Because you deserve that
and because I love you
Take that last bit in...
I love you, Lindsey.
I mean that.
I love you with all that I am and I have loved you since the very day I told you so.
I love every single thing about you, Lindsey. I love your laugh, and your smile.
I love your hair and I love your freckles. But the thing is, those are all things
that anyone can love about you. Granted, I'm sure I love them more than
anyone else could. I love you in a much deeper way - a way that rises
above all of that. I love your stubbornness and I love your passion.
I love the way you get frustrated when I put your hair behind
your ear. I love the way you get so angry when you're sick
because "goddammit, I want to feel well!" I love the way
you toss and turn in your sleep on some nights, and
are impossible to move so I can get more blankets
on others. I love the way you sit back and pay
such close attention to detail when you think
no one is paying attention to you. I love
the way you try your best to politely
not take any crap from anyone,
and that I am one of the few
people who can see the
difference. I love
Thank you so much for giving me the chance to be with you, Lindsey. I have become such a better person because of this and my life has become exponentially better because of the role you have played in it. You are without a doubt the most amazing human being I have ever met in my life, and I am so grateful to be able to call you mine. I mean that. I am grateful for you. You are my best friend and my lover, and I will always be here for you, no matter what. You mean the world to me, darling. Happy anniversary, beautiful. I'm sure this is the first of many to come. I love you so much, Lindsey Caroline Gambino. I don't know how else to say it. I'm in love with you, and all that you are. I really can't thank you enough for everything. I love you so much.
that I will be there
for you, just
as you have
been there for
me since the
