This time of year is special to lots of people, for lots of different reasons. Birthdays, fairs, school starts, leaves change, hunting starts, the squirrels start yammering about their nuts.
For my husband and I, it's the season of our anniversary.
Since we have been together (even before we got married), we've travelled to the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity and volunteered. In repayment, we are allowed to wander the fair grounds, get a teeshirt, and a free organic meal, that once, we had the distinct pleasure of chopping vegetables for in the rain. As we were preparing to take off this year, he said to me "It's our third time going over...wow". And I thought back and said "I think it's our 4th time...we did it the year we got married." And sure enough, it was.
I know I found the right one when one morning, we were looking at each other, and said "It totally doesn't feel like it's been three years."
I feel truly blessed to have a partner, not a "ball and chain" as some refer to their signficant other.
