Sylvia and I have been together for almost a year now. It was around this time last year that we met online through a dating site. We talked first through instant messages and emails. We then talked on the phone and we met for the first time in person on October 31st of last year. A lot has happened in the last year and much of it has been put on this blog!
I am not sure how we will celebrate our one year anniversary. It occurs on Halloween and I am sure Ethan will want to be out trick-or-treating. We may celebrate the day before or the weekend after October 31st.
Sylvia and I lay in bed this morning reflecting about this past year. We have had our bumps in the road, but overall it has been a fantastic year. We have grown as a couple and she has become a great step-mom to the boys. We make time for each other and take care of each other. We also have written our wills and given each other power of attorney so our families can’t step in and keep the other one out if we were to become ill. We are looking forward to another forty or fifty years together and hopefully during this time we can legally marry in the state we reside in!
