Today I have been married to my extraordinary life partner Andrea Davis for thirty two years! Where did the time go?!
“They” like to say “time flies when you’re having fun.” Well, you don’t hit 32 years without having fun … and we’ve had fun!
I came up with a list of why she’s “Still the One“, and yet a list is so incomplete! A snapshot (in a family album?) glimpse…a moment in time…so valuable, and still, how many more things can I add? More than I can remember. A partnership is a continuum, while memories are a spectrum…they are part of the whole but don’t tell the whole story. I usually don’t mind the forgets, because the remembers tell the best parts…but there are so many more “best” parts!
Thirty two years. Wow. Where did the time go? She still reinvents herself, is adventurous and never wants to be afraid of anything. We’ve moved beyond finishing each other’s sentences to sometimes blurting the same thing simultaneously! She indulges my quirks – socks, beer, coffee, costumes – and more than not encourages them!
The Secret? It’s not a secret. Enjoy your time together. Do things together. Be together.
So, where did the time go? …it didn’t “go” anywhere. We were together, even when we weren’t (I had some Navy in my career.)
I love you, Andrea, and always will. 32 is not enough to know you…I still want to grow old with you!
