Funny how time passes. Two years? Really now. Doesn’t feel like it. Jerico and I don’t have a lot of photos, partly because (a.) we dont have a camera and (b.) he’s always pretending that he’s camera shy. But oh well. Not having photos doesn’t mean that you don’t have those kodak moments…it just means that…well…you really need to buy a camera. Hehe.
It’s nice to think that after all the things we’ve been through we’re still together. Two years isn’t such a long time if you think about it…some people have been together for more years. But who said the length of time matters? It’s what you both experience that matters; it’s how well you handle the pushings and pullings of everyday; its how you grow together that matters. People may think that Jico and I are weird. Hehe can’t blame them either. We don’t often go on fancy dates and high flying adventures and buy each other expensive stuff (yeah yeah, that is what poor people say. :)) and well, all the ceremonious stuff “couples” go to and do. Jerico and I are laid back, a Lily-and-Marshall thing if I might say so myself. But it’s been fun. Amazing. Like I’m having the time of my life.
When people ask us our “love story” I can’t really tell them anything big and romantic and chickflick-ish. Making requirements and long walks and scribbling at food court tables and Cornetto evenings and doing NGT feedings and happy skipping and getting free samples at the grocery aren’t very “romantic” stuff as per standard. But these little things make all the difference. And if you’d just see the world through my eyes (i have 20-20 vision, thankyouverymuch. :)), you’d realize that when you look at the tall, curly haired boy sitting beside you, your heart skips a beat and you’d smile and think, “My, it’s wonderful to be loved.”
Jerico and I have been together for two years. The bookshop where he asked me to be his partner in crime has closed down but guess what? We’re still here, and I look forward to the next hundred everydays we get to spend with each other.
I love you, Jeri. Happy anniversary.
