We made it

As of today both my boyfriend T (of Soup du Jour of the Day) and I have each officially reached the big 4-0 .Who'd have thought that A) we'd ever live to be this old and B) that we'd still be together? This September we'll hit our 15 year anniversary and I thank God every day that somehow I've managed to hold on to this wonderful man that loves me completely and accepts me as the quirky, bitchy, wild spirit that I am. Some would say that I am lucky. I would say that I am truly blessed. If I had just one wish for my Punkin on his birthday it would be that he knows how much I truly love him. He's more handsome than the day I met him and still has that great ass that attracted me to him in the first place. He grows kinder and more patient with every year. Most of all he's put up with me through the thick and thin...all of my drama...my bitchiness and my quirks... and he's still here by my side.

I love you, Punkin, more than you know. Happy Birthday.

Very sweet. Hope you two last for ever. What I've read, you seem to be the perfect couple.

OMG! A couple that has been together so long and has something OF SUBSTANCE to boast about!

Have I blogged yet about how much I hate couples that have been together ages and think the number of years, not the actual quality of the relationship, is the main indicator of their commitment? 'We're far more in love than you are,' they'll say. 'We've been together 25 years!' Grrrrrrrr.

Big congrats for birthdays and great relationships! I'm green with envy ;D

And many many more happy returns for you two...I second the envy.

Perhaps you're not the lucky one but he is. Or perhaps you both are for maintaining a great relationship for so long.

I second that emotion:

"Big congrats for birthdays and great relationships!"

Welcome to your forties. The old age of youth, 50 the youth of old age.

All of the best for you both

Many thanks to everyone for the kind comments. Come the date of our official anniversary I'll post a story about how we met and how T got (one of) his nickname(s) "Mr. Butt" :-)
