The Power of Two to the Third

Tomorrow is our eighth wedding anniversary. SwingDaddy is an amazing human being, and I'm honored and privileged to be his partner in this adventure of ours.

He's multi-talented in both abstract and practical ways. His sophomore dorm selected him as the person they most wanted as a companion if stranded on a deserted island. He's hot and sexy, yes! And he is also the person most likely to have the all skills needed to get you off the island and rescued.

He's truly thoughtful. Five years ago, he needed surgery, and after a frantic week of research and talking to doctors, we had an appointment at the university medical center. We drove there at dawn, and as we walked into the hospital, he had me turn around and face the parking lot. He was heading in for major surgery, but instead of worrying for himself, he was thinking about me. He pointed out where we had parked the car, so I wouldn't be stressed finding it when I emerged hours later. That's just the kind of person he is.

And he shows our son and me how much he loves us every day.

Happy Anniversary, SwingDaddy!
