“Well,” I told Arthur back in January. “It’s official. We’ve been us for 20 years. Can you believe we started dating that long ago?”
He nodded. We were thick in the midst of house things, redecorating, and moving. It felt like that statement should be more climactic somehow, but, well, we’d just bought a house.
So it goes. Another year, another mile marker. Thirteen years ago today, we held the official launch party formalizing our partnership and starting our family.
Arthur let me sleep in an hour and a half this morning and that’s the kind of gesture that feels somehow more romantic than the “traditional” sorts of gifts for a day like today. I’ll put away the dishes and then go a bit extra to do the laundry that is typically his responsibility and tonight we’ll go to dinner and despite our best efforts, wind up talking about the nuts and bolts of running a life together.
As far as creative and collaborative endeavors go, I think it’s a success so far, that we still wake up and wouldn’t want to do this with anyone else.
