Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

Four years ago I was here at Musecon, sharing a room with Jared, Xap, and this lovely young woman who I had recently started performing with. I had a considerable crush on the young woman, but me being me, I figured there would be no way she would ever be interested in me.

I may have been mistaken about that last bit.

Saturday night of the con, I had acquired food and wanted to retreat to the room for a bit of downtime. She asked if she could come up and hang out, if I wouldn't mind. I am not foolish enough to refuse the company of a lovely woman, no matter how disinterested in me me she may be.

She: You don't get it do you?
Me: Get what?

Yeah, that was my response. We had a long conversation and Sunday, as I was packing the car I said to her "you've given me a lot to think about".

A month later we met at Strowlers and this began in earnest.

Three years ago, here at Musecon, we stood up in front of a lot of our family, with a lot of our family standing with us, and had the most wonderful wedding we could have had.

Four years after that conversation on a Saturday night we woke up in the same hotel, with a lot of the same family around us. This time it is both Jared and Reilly with us in the room.

Even after the terrible year we have had, we are more in love and happier every day.

I love you my glorious Lizzie Crowe. You have made my life a better thing, and me a better person. Here is to many, many more years!
