Happy May 5th...

One year ago today, it was snowing (crazy Prescott spring)

365 Days ago today, Dina and I were headed to a local Blogger meet up to introduce ourselves to the local bloggers in town...

531075 minutes ago today, I walked into The Raven Cafe, not even realizing how much my life would change...

Because 86400.002 seconds ago today
, I found myself sitting across the table from Rich. Having a nice conversation...listening to him say that he'd just found Prescott a mere 2 months before, and was enjoying himself and looking to stay. When I got home, I left a comment on his blog letting him know it was nice to meet him, and how happy I am to see excited people move here (I still am in fact, there's nothing worse than watching people move here and then complain about it) Much to my surprise, an email conversation ensued most of that night...back and forth between the two of us...giggling at each other (and yes, I've saved all of them) resulting in us making plans to hike the Peavine the next day.

I'm not quite sure what to say about this past year, because in knowing Rich, I still kind of feel like a giddy teenager. I think it's a little scary to find oneself getting close to another person after you've been through a divorce (since we both have, we've talked about this) We now know how much there is at stake...but, I realize that there is more at stake if I wouldn't make that leap, because no matter how much sadness I could potentially feel...it is worth every second of the joy that you find when you discover a like soul. I'm so happy that I took this chance...because the longer I've known Rich, the more I realize what a kind, generous, sweet man that he is (there's not a night that goes by that he doesn't call to say good-night...even if we've just seen each other.) We enjoy so many of the same activities and interests, and the best part? He's a good friend and an amazing person. He likes me and treats me with respect...he is patient, observant and intelligent. We talk. We laugh. We enjoy spending time together. He can quickly bring a smile to my face and joy to my day...

He thinks I only
keep him around for his Airstream...but, I think we know it's so much more than that...

Happy May 5th Rich...

I am indeed still smitten....

Wait a minute! The mexicans (and americans) beat the tar out of the french and mexican rebles on this day in 1862 (And you thought it was the Mexican independence day didnt you?) and you are getting all gushy and lovey-dovey?

Seriously, time to drape a mexican flag around yourself and proclaim your disdain for all things french (except for french food, of course).

No? Fine, be that way. And for the record, you two are so cute you make kittens and puppy dogs look ugly by comparison.... uuughhh. :)
