Three years of bliss

Today, 3 years ago, I had the privilege of marrying my soulmate. I call it a privilege because it is something we shouldn't take for granted. First of all, you need to find a person to love. Both of you need to be at the right place at the right time, both physically and emotionally. Both of you also need to share the desire to discover if this is the real deal or not. Even if everything goes smoothly and according to plan, you might never reach a point beyond it feeling fine and nice. But it is when it feels spectacular and amazing you know you've truly got it right. And if you both wish to, you might eventually decide to get married.

At the dinner following our wedding, I read a little something I had written. I'm happy to say it was true back then and it still rings true today (with the exception of an electronic device upgrade):

Call it coincident, accident or call it fate
This story has its beginning on www.Spray-date
I was looking for someone to love and admire
Little did I know I’d find someone to be with when I retire

Martin found a girl called Jennifer Lee
And I fell in love with a computer Phd
A man who is tall, blond and slightly pale
A man who loves music, tv and a good garage sale
We all know he loves candy, whiskey and that he is a joker
He is full of surprises, he’s never mediocre

As a couple, we love to travel from nation to nation
But we are just as happy in front of our Playstation
Or battling over the high score on our Nintendo Wii
As long as we’re together, laughs are a guarantee

Sometimes we engage in some friendly competition
Sometimes we discuss, I can’t help but being a politician. 
I don’t necessary share his love for stupid puns
To cheer him up, I give him cinnamon buns. 

We have spend many, too many, days being apart
And with every good bye came an aching pain in my heart
Like when I moved to Trelleborg to work with flooring
I missed you everyday, I even missed your snoring

To spend time together means so incredibly much
Like sleeping in same bed, just you, me and your Ipod-touch.
So, I proposed to you in front of an episode of House
I was delighted you agreed to be my spouse

Today we married and I’m now your wife
I look forward to be with you for the rest of my life. 
I want to be by your side when we’re wrinkled and grey
My dear husband Martin, jag kommer alltid att älska dig (translation: I will always love you)
