First and foremost, the bouquet:
This is what I saw when I walked in the door on Friday. ZOMG! Morgan doing her best Vanna White and providing a size comparison. And 'cause it's cute, Morgan + rose.

Now, in uploading those, I also found that I had lots of other photos on my camera, so here be photodump:

Edinburgh, June 2007

Holy sh!t blue sky!! So inspired, Alan and I tried to walk up Arthur's Seat. I am way too out of shape so we only made it halfway up. The city from halfway up Arthur's Seat. Cool ruins with the Firth of Forth in the background (so yes, I've regressed to grammar school, and the name makes me snicker). The Castle, which I never did manage to get a tour of (excuse to come back in nicer weather). And a random piper outside a bank off the Royal Mile.

Trip to the coast, May 2007

View from the back deck of the cottage we rented. That's the mouth of the Russian River and the Pacific Ocean. On the right-hand shore there are tons of seals (as it was baby season). Morgan wanted to touch the ocean, so we went down to the beach. Oops, guess not. So we walked over to the river side and Morgan went wading with Uncle Rew.

Morgan in Grandpa's sweatshirt, so that she can sit outside on the porch with Rew. And on the way home we passed this nursery that had really cool dinosaurs, so we had to stop and check it out.

Random springtime

At the zoo. "Big monkey" begging for food. Morgan is Cinderella at Fairytale Town. Daffodil Hill, 'cause I love daffodils and used to work in the snack shack there.

Christmas 2006

Tree shopping. And of course Grandpa gave her a motorcycle.

And two from last fall: Aspen 'cause they're beautiful, and "Well, Mommy, let me think" 'cause Morgan has fantastic expressions.

So I come home after work this evening to find a bouquet as tall as my daughter sitting (standing?) on the coffee table. With deep red roses and white lilies as big as my hand. [livejournal.com profile] ktbee thank you for being home when they were delivered!

Alan, I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you!

*ded from pretty*

((And yes, I'll make a special trip up to Grandma's tomorrow to upload photos. 'Cause just wow. You guys have got to see this.))

Five years ago tonight, I decided for the first time in my life that I was going to get a cute boy to talk to me, and succeeded. Well, neither of us remembers who approached whom, but the end result is the point.

My grandmother, when I told her about how I met him and how easily we talked and that it felt like I'd known him for years, said, "Maybe he's your angel."

Maybe he is.

Anniversary

It's my anniversary today. And, boy, is it just about the biggest non-event ever (other than Y2K). Granted, given the situation, it makes sense that no cards or gifts were sent, or even a phone call, but it still feels kind of odd. The only contact I had with Johnnie today was a very short video chat session, whose purpose was to let the folks on his end see Morgan. As we were wrapping up, amidst the goodbyes, I said, "by the way, happy anniversary." And he said, "same to you." And that was it.

Two years ago... I was getting everything I wanted; a husband, a baby who had just started to kick the night before, we were surrounded by family and friends and it was so warm and happy.

Funny how fast things can go to shit, eh?
