The Sweetest Story Ever

Everybody who knows me personally knows I am not shy, I am not quiet. I am not backward when it comes to expressing emotion. In other words, I am the complete opposite of my Anthony. Anthony is shy and quiet. He would rather sit quietly somewhere and observe what's going on instead of being what's going on. Opposites truly do attract.

Our tastes and personalities couldn't be more different.
I like top 40, rock, southern rock... He is a bluegrass musician.
I like karaoke bars.... He'd rather be somewhere listening to a live band.
I like sushi & other exotic foods...He'd rather have Burger King or Taco Bell.
I drive like my pants are on fire... He takes his time a & enjoys the scenery.
The differences are many, but the love is the same.

Anyhoo... Anthony wasn't 100% sure about me in the beginning. I think he had been convinced by various mutual acquaintances that I was a complete wild cat and was one to be reckoned with. That, my friends, is just an act.

Still yet, he was gun shy of me enough that even after he had fallen in love with me, he was skeerd to say it. Rather than saying it, everytime he'd come around, he'd have another CD for me and he'd tell me "listen to #8" or whatever number the specific song would be. All of these songs would be lovey-dovey, oooey-goooey ditties. I got the message really fast and eventually he gave in and told me how much he loves me. What's not to love, right?

I just wanted to share the words to a song and the outcome of his profession of love and devotion to me, his Diva.

The song that captured my heart was:
You Are My Flower - Flatt & Scruggs - Circa
It goes a little somethin like this:

You are my flower
That's blooming in the mountain so high
You are my flower
That's blooming there for me

When summertime is gone and snow begins to fall
You can sing this song and say to one and all

So wear a happy smile and life will be worthwhile
Forget the tears but don't forget to smile

Now, ain't that the sweetest thing you've ever seen in your life?

What was the outcome of this? Well, I went and got more ink.
