One Year Already?

Feels like yesterday when we first met – I still wish I’d worn better clothes and higher heels. 

I often giggle as I remember the formal ‘Hey! Ssup..’ texts we sent each other for a week after meeting – and shiver remembering the first time we used the L word, months later. 
I still think of you as my secret boyfriend – I doubt anyone would have believed me if I told them anyway. 
I almost faint every time I see you in your super HOT combat uniform, which is, well, everyday – it’s something that hasn’t yet ceased to have this effect on me. 
No matter how much you try to tell me that ‘Eight days a Week’ is OUR song because you played it for me numersously – I still think my song for you is ‘I’m Gonna Getcha Good’ 
You still hate chick flicks and I still cannot stand all-action movies, You hate ‘Sex and The City‘ and I don’t find ‘30 Rock‘ all that interesting – but we find peace in ‘Modern Family‘ and love sharing butter popcorn . 
Our long-drive-in-the-middle-of-the-night ritual is still followed – and many times I feel a rush inside on realizing that we’ll go together in the same house even after the drive is over. 
I throw a fit if you use my towel – but I secretly use yours when you are away for weeks, and tell myself its only this once. 
I am still getting used to being addressed by your name – I write it down a hundred times and stare at it with a smile. 
I still resent the non-stop cricket and/or football on TV – but I cannot watch the Hollywood gossip without you by my side to discuss it. 
I still frown when you interrupt my kitchen-humming with your own version of the song – But I love your innovative lyrics and I sing not the original, but your version most of the times. 
I still get nervous and shut up for a moment every time your mom calls when we are together – And then I realize, she knows I’m there, we’re married. (heehee) 
Sometimes I think we’ve been together for ages – but most of the times it feels like we are just getting started. 
Last September seemed an happy ending to a dream, this September it is still like living a dream. 
I love you more and more, each day – for all the moments, hours and days spent in love – and I can’t yet believe it is one year already!

    Ha ha, This comes from somebody known as anti-love…:)
    Thats why i say,the only way to find out if you are in love is to see if you are feeling the opposite of what you did for all the years till that happened 🙂
