Monday, after an exhausting day at market, we were sitting at Cracker Barrel waiting on our food when all the employees start chanting one of those restaurant-birthday-tunes, I think "hmmm...We have a birthday coming up.....who's is it?....Oh, it's mine......No but there's something else.....What comes before my birthday?....Oh! Our anniversary!" I turn to look at Ben and say "Babe! Oh my goodness! It's almost our tenth anniversary!" He says "Oh yeah! It is! I totally forgot!" I reply (totally not offended because he usually remembers before me) "Me too!"
Then tonight, we were getting ready for bed and I looked at my phone and noticed the date "Oh yeah, our anniversary is this week sometime. What day is it?" He replies "I don't know, I forgot again." I say "Me too, my phone reminded me!" Then he says with a laugh "Ten years and we can't remember our anniversary!"
Nope, we can't.....and that's just the way I like it. Not a day goes by that I don't feel special, we still laugh and play, and have a good time together...I still get excited when he comes through the door, and he never needs an excuse to treat me like a princess.....I love him and feel loved more every day. We don't have to wait on a special day to do any of that! Next month we plan to take a little side trip on our way home from Quilt Market in Texas. We're going to call it our tenth anniversary trip...but if we forget to call it that...it will be alright, because I'll still know that I'm his girl, and he will still be my Ben.
By the way..."Ben and Sam" was on the front of our wedding invitations! So many people have called me Sam all my life that we were afraid they wouldn't know who Samantha was! I'll try to get a picture of that up sometime this week.....if I remember :)
