6 Months of Bliss

Today marks six months from that first fateful coffee date with S.  Since that time, we haven’t looked back.  I can’t believe how fast it has gone, and yet I can’t believe it has only been half a year.  Because I feel like I’ve known him forever.  And my family seems to dig him too – aunt and uncle invited him to their debate-watching  dinner tonight.

Witness the following exchange between S and my mother…

Mom:  I want to tell my grandkids someday about the history Barack Obama is making.  And tell them stories about this debate and how I felt about it.

S:  You mean my kids?

If that wasn’t the most blatant revelation of his intentions, I don’t know what is.  It sounds like he caught mom a little off-guard, but in a good way.

Whoulda thunk it?  I travel all the way to Africa to meet my first husband, go through a painful divorce, and swear off looking into the future with anyone for a very long time. Then it turns out my perfect person was literally in my backyard all along.

When you know, you just know.
