our engagement

Nineteen years ago today, Captain Cavedweller and I exchanged vows in front of family and friends.

We were young and in love and completely clueless. Now we’re middle-aged and in love and still somewhat clueless.

Through the years we’ve had our ups and downs, our challenges and triumphs, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is that we’ve always, always loved each other.

For that I am more grateful than words can express. And if I do try to express them, I’ll get way too sappy and my eyes may even begin to leak.

So instead, I’ll say this – it is such a blessing to have found the one person who can make me laugh and smile every single day, who knows when to leave me alone and when to give me a push forward, who will hold my hand no matter what,  who believes in me and supports me one hundred percent, who loves me without conditions or expectations.

He is my friend, my confidant, head cheerleader, coach, champion, and love.

He is my wonderful Captain Cavedweller.

Happy Anniversary!

She Who Loves You Forever and Always

Yesterday was my birthday.

According to Captain Cavedweller I’m somewhere between “over the hill and not quite as old as dirt.”


Between email messages, facebook posts, cards, calls and gifts  – you all made me feel very loved! Thank you!

Despite his teasing about my age, CC did do a great job making me feel special.

First he sent me these at work:

Then when I got home, he gave me several gifts.

He knows I have a thing for antique dishes and roses. The  combination of the two is nearly lethal to my system:

Aren’t these gorgeous!

And this…

I think part of my heart is still melted in a puddle on the living room carpet.

I absolutely love this watch! The silver pattern on the band is barbed wire and then there are the stars around the watch face. Love!

Thanks to all who made my birthday so wonderful and amazing. You are so appreciated!

Today is Captain Cavedweller’s birthday.

I have a feeling since it is Monday, since we both have to work and since it isn’t a “milestone” birthday, the celebration is going to be pretty low key.

Low key works for CC because that pretty much sums up his personality – low key, laid back and casual.

When I met CC, he was so different than other guys I knew. He liked to stay out of the spotlight, he genuinely cared about others and he wasn’t embarrassed to hug his mom or his grandma. You know you’ve got a keeper when he lets his grandma pinch his cheeks in front of his new girlfriend or allows his mother to hug him or his dad to ruffle his hair without rolling his eyes or complaining.

Some of the things I most admire about CC includes his ability to break the tension in a room with a joke or a laugh. Rarely is anything all about him. He can be completely exhausted, but if someone asks for his help, he’ll see what he can do to provide assistance. He doesn’t dwell in the negative or stew over things he can’t change. I recently witnessed him take the high road when taken the lower road would have been a lot easier.

He has taught me to look beyond what is just in front of my face  – to see the stars twinkling in the night sky or the butterfly dancing with summer’s fragrant blossoms.

CC still holds open doors for me, he brings me flowers “just because,” and makes my world a little brighter just be sharing it with me.

Although I’m sure it would embarrass him to acknowledge it, he provides me with a wealth of inspiration for my romance novels. In my stories, most of the guys are gentlemen. They treat women respectfully, work hard, have fun and do their best. They may not always get everything right, but they try.

Rather like my Captain Cavedweller. He’s not perfect, but none of us are. And if you want to tally flaws, I’m pretty sure his are far, far fewer than mine.

Which is why I love him so.

That, and he looked really cute in his jeans in boots.

CC knows I’m a complete and total nut-job most of the time, yet he loves me anyway.

He gives me time and space to be me… to dream. And he not only encourages my dreams, he does what he can to support them and help them become a reality.

I know his love is unconditional. I like to think he knows mine is too. Unconditional and deeply grateful for the blessing of him in my life. I don’t know how he manages it, but he melts my heart on a daily basis, makes me laugh and gives me more joy, friendship and love than I would have thought possible.

So today, my beloved Captain, I wish for you all that you deserve and so much more. I wish for you a special day and an amazing year ahead. I wish you dreams come true.

Happy, Happy Birthday!

She Who Loves CC From the Very Depths of Her Heart

Eighteen years ago today, Captain Cavedweller and I stood before family and friends, exchanged vows and pledged our love to one another.

I could go all sappy on you here and tell you the million reasons I am grateful  to be married to Mr. Cavedweller.

Instead, I’ll say the following about my beloved:

He is my best friend.

He makes me laugh all the time.

He is my number one cheerleader and encourager of my dreams.

He is an honest, good man.

He spoils me.

He melts my heart daily.

He loves me deeply and unconditionally.

Captain Cavedweller is a blessing I am grateful for daily. I know that, after 18 years, we are both wonderfully blessed to be able to honestly say we are more in love with each other today than we were when we we wed. I thought we couldn’t love each other a drop more then and that was literally a drop in the bucket compared to how much I love him now.

I love you, My Captain.

Happy Anniversary!
