here is a post that i wrote in 2012 about Valentine's Day! we wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day, but for us, our big day to celebrate is February 13th! as February 13th is our big day, and i have learned over the past 13yrs together that i actually love my jambaloney more with each passing day, i thought i would just re-post what i had already written about him.
that...and the fact that we are getting ready to climb on the couch to cuddle, snack, watch movies and nap - bahahahahahah!
this is a very meaningful day to me and jambaloney. not because of today - but because of yesterday - February 13!
years ago on February 13, jambaloney told me he loved me for the first
time! i near swooned and/or fainted. it was touch and go at the time
with the knees all week and my stomach doing backflips - but somehow i
managed to hold it together and tell him that i loved him, too. it was
the first time i said it to his face but i had said that i loved him
many millions of times by that point to just about anyone who would
listen to me. we had only been dating since January 19, almost a month,
but i knew the moment i looked at him that he was mine. plus there was a
big, flashing sign on his head, put there by angels, that blinked
"kymber - he's yours!!!" over and over.
i worked at my
absolute favourite job at the time. i worked with some of the greatest
colleagues and friends ever. i would walk into work, floating on air,
and dead tired from another night of no sleep. jambaloney and i used to
be phone hogs during the first few weeks of our dating, and we would
stay on the phone all night talking during the work week. we fell asleep
together so many times on the phone it's not funny! anyway i would
float into work and as i approached my desk i would hear all of the
little songbirds (my colleagues) singing - "kymber's in lerrrrrve!". i
loved it! two of my friends, J and my boss V, would invite me into V's
office for a full run-down on the previous evening's marathon phone
session. and they would ooh and ahh with me. they always said that he
sounded to good to be real, or true, for that matter! but when they met
jambaloney they fell in love with him almost as much as me. i was
fighting those women off until the time i left that job!
of fighting off women - man oh man - i have been doing that since the
first day i met him! needless to say, i am a pretty good fighter! naw,
jes' teasin' wit' ya! but i have yet to encounter a woman that doesn't
fall in love with him on sight. he is incredibly gorgeous, ya know? but
when they see how kind and generous he is - they love him more! when
they realize that he is a true and proper gentlemen (you did good,
Liz!), they love him even more! when they find out that he can fix
anything, lift anything, cook, clean and do laundry - that's when i have
to get the boxing gloves out!
did i tell you that i
won a chainsaw from the VFD raffle? no? well i did - woohoo for
jambaloney! anyway, last saturday, at the Fourchu Spaghetti and Meatball
Dinner, everyone was congratulating me on winning. one of the women
said, "now kymber, you can take the chainsaw out in the woods and
jambaloney can do the dishes"! at the exact same time, both jambaloney
and i said that he always does the dishes. i then said that he cooks,
cleans and does laundry, too! the next words out of her mouth were, "can
he please come and live with me, then?". we all laughed. but trust me,
she was dead serious. i might need to get the gloves back out soon.
so today is happy love day and i have a stupid,
little homemade love day gift for him. but yesterday was the important
day for us. February 13 will always be my second favourite day of the
year. January 19, the day i met him, will always be my first!
see something goofy but fills me with incredible happiness, joy, awe,
wonder and a feeling that someone so wonderful really loves me?
2 pics from a summer day not too long ago. we were laying in the sun
and jambaloney braided my hair and put flowers in the braids.
hope he knows just how very much i love him. i know that he knows...but
i don't think anyone other than me could ever really know just how
~you have no idea, babe~
again, i hope that you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day...and be sure to tell the one that you love, that you love them, everyday, NOT just on Valentine's Day.
