The One I Love

Three years ago today I married my best friend. This year, we already got the most perfect anniversary gift.
Good thing too, because otherwise I would have no idea what to get Blake.
CVS at 56th and Illinois has a terrible card selection.
For those of you we weren't lucky enough to have with us on that day...










We said our vows before a few hundred friends and family members. 
We were blessed by a priest from my church and a minister from Blake's.
We visited my mom's grave and the sun was shining.













We had pictures taken with our dearest friends and siblings in downtown Cincinnati.

 

We ate (or at least I did) wonderful food.
We drank (or at least Blake did) whatever we wanted.
We shared a piece of a gorgeous cake.

  

We danced to a David Gray song that most people think is about death, soldiers, heaven, whatever.
We didn't think about the song that hard.
We chose it for the tune and the parts about love that get stuck in our heads.
It's stuck in my head right now.



Gonna close my eyes
Girl and watch you go
Running through this life darling
Like a field of snow
As the tracer glides
In its graceful arc
Send a little prayer out to ya
'cross the falling dark

Tell the repo man
And the stars above
You're the one I love

Perfect summers night
Not a wind that breathes
Just the bullets whispering gentle
'mongst the new green leaves
There's things I might have said
Only wish I could
Now I'm leaking life faster
Then I'm leaking blood

Tell the repo man
And the stars above
You're the one I love
You're the one I love
The one I love

Don't see Elysium
Don't see no fiery hell
Just the lights up bright baby
In the bay hotel
Next wave coming in
Like an ocean roar
Won't you take my hand darling
On that old dancefloor

We can twist and shout
Do the turtle dove
And you're the one I love
You're the one I love
The one I love

Blaker, you're the one I love. 
Happy Anniversary.
Love,
Me
xoxo
