There was much talk of feelings tonight. We’re both tired. But I think we’re better connected now. Sometimes you need a reset.
Today (well yesterday now: April 12th) is our ten year anniversary. I can hardly believe it. Here’s hoping for ten more.
Headed to The Loop for our date night:
We went to Blueberry Hill for dinner, because it has a special place in our history. We met there very early on to discuss what the hell we were going to do. Because we were married…to other people. Like absolute dorks, we met for lunch and actually discussed the pros and cons. We decided to not see each other. That lasted for exactly two days.
Then we went to Delmar Hall to see Wolf Alice. It was a great show, though I’m bummed that they didn’t play “Silk.”
After the show, we hit up Itap and drank and talked, laughed and cried. It was exactly what we needed.
I’m so lucky that you are my best friend. There’s no one quite like you. ♥️
I got drunk-high and performed a most amazing (if I do say so myself) lap dance for D.
It was effective.
And I made $30.
I do really love where WE are in our relationship. Growing old together is weird, but strangely fun. I’m grateful.
We were literally just discussing this:
Today is our wedding anniversary; four years (out of the almost ten we’ve been together) married. Burning down my entire life to be with you is still the best decision I’ve ever made. This new life we built together has surpassed even my wildest dreams.
I don’t know how much time we have left, but I do know that no matter how long we have, it would never feel like enough. I also know that, while our relationship has grown and changed over the years, we have always grown together. Thank you for inspiring me to be the best I can be.
Thank you for choosing me, and loving me, every single day, no matter how tough it gets.
your Jenn ♥️
The conversation flowed. No awkwardness. They are sweet, and I can def see us being friends with them. We def want to hang again. It doesn’t hurt that they’re adorable.
We went to an LS meet & greet tonight, for the first time in like 6 years, and it was fun, though there were no connections made. It felt good to be back in the scene though. It was also good for my self-esteem. I actually felt sexy.
(It helps that D and I had amazing sex last night, and I felt very sexy despite feeling old and chubby. I realized that I’m still a fucking snack – and not despite it, BUT BECAUSE OF IT).
D and I have decided to check out another location soon. We’re also going to hit up a strip club, because we’ve never gone together. I’m so happy that we’re back to mixing it up TOGETHER. ♥️
I don’t know how I’ve gotten so lucky.
