One of the more obvious proofs that Dennise loves me is that she puts up with me going to Kerrville over Memorial Day Weekend. Not only that, but sometimes she even comes too.
The big deal of this is that this weekend almost always coincides with our anniversary. As it does this year. In fact, it’s today.
I’m writing this a week early and assuming that Google’s auto-post feature is going to work. Assuming it did, this should post on the morning of the 29th, as I awake from my Camp Nashbill tent, and as Dennise and Maria will head to Love Field to join me later today.
We’re closing in on twenty years, in just a few more. Often hard to believe the time has flown by like that.
The song below is one I wrote on our ten-year anniversary trip back to Santa Fe and Taos, where we’d spent our honeymoon. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on multi-tracking it, and probably still need to do some work ( the lead vox are a bit, “meh,” to me…). But I really like how it’s coming together.
It was a song I really liked at the time I wrote it and –as each year rolls by– has newer and deeper meaning to me. Life’s been especially good lately, and among all the things I am grateful for, and I am very grateful for that May day “so many years ago.”
Love you, babe. See you later today…..
