5 Years

5 years ago at Musecon, Lizzie hit me over the head. Yeah, clueless geek boy that I am. The pretty woman would never be interested in me.

A month later, 5 years ago today, we met at Strowlerfest in St Louis.

We spent the weekend talking, listening to music, making music, some other things as well.

We both went into the weekend thinking "this will be nice, it probably won't last, it will be a nice little fling". Lizzie was certain at that point that she would never get married. I had been certain that I was done, I was going to live the rest of my life alone.

We drove home Sunday in different directions, both in a state of shock. Both knowing that our lives had changed completely. By New Years Eve we were making the final plans to make this into a permanent thing.

5 years ago.

A lot of the last 5 years have been difficult. All of it has been marvelous, amazing.

It has been a glorious adventure so far, and the road ahead looks lovely.

I adore you my fabulous Lizzie Crowe.

Life could not better be.
