My honey is on his way

Chris is on his way from Colorado.
We actually get to spend Valentine's Day together.
This will be a first in about 4 years. Ahhh the joys of a long distance relationship. Actually we have always done this long distance thing. When Chris and I started dating - 6 1/2 years ago, he was working internationally in the oil field. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. My international experience was going to Canada for a college thing once. Between the Marine's and the oil field - he has been everywhere. I also have to admit, not only was I excited to see him when he got home, I couldn't wait to see what he brought me. He has wonderful taste and always seemed to pick up the perfect present. Perfume from Paris, a Mongolian saddle, jade from China. He spoiled me that is for sure.
It hasn't always been easy for either of us. It can be hard to stay connected to someone who is gone a lot. Sometimes it felt like he was never there for the important stuff. We have fought like crazy, broke up several times, made our friends endure having to hear all of the sorid details, but.... we both always knew that we had found our soulmate in each other. So at the end of the day and the beginning and the middle and probably 100 times in between, he is who I think about. Any little interesting thing and I am on the phone filling him in and he does the same. So while we may not have the luxury of seeing each other every day, we are incomplete without each other.
Valentine's Day comes regularly in this house.

6 1/2 years long distance? that is something to be proud of. I know how hard that can be!
It makes me happy to hear that although it's a struggle love conquers all!
