i meant to do this for sam's birthday, but only got around to actually doing it on mine.
i have chopped my locks again.
the excuse i tell myself is my hair is still falling out (lord love nursing), and my bangs are vainly trying to hide the fact that they're actually growing hair (from all my hair that previously fell out...again: lord love nursing). the real reason: my husband. because i love fulfilling his wishes, one of them being that i cut my hair again. --and so i have.
so on my birthday i want to say thank you.
thank you sam for loving me, and in loving me, making me fall so deeply and madly in love with you.
thank you for being the one that i'll live the rest of my life with, and for making me realize that that's okay...better than okay...it's wonderful! (those who know the me i used to be, understand what i mean.)
on my 25th birthday i will officially tell the world that (a couple years ago) i officially said goodbye to "independent woman", and am unquestionably now dependent and loving it.
thank you sam, for being with me on this long, drawn out birthday, that started on the road (march 3rd, my "actual" birthday), "knocking and looking and knocking and looking" like mary and joseph for a place to stay (please not a stable!); slowly making its wending way through visayas and back to luzon, experiencing the virgin beauties of these paradise islands (do not judge the philippines by manila! shame on manila! northern samar, here we come!); finally having my "surprise" birthday party once we got back home, with a surprisingly good turn out (thank you everyone who came, forgive my unsocial nature, and going to bed even before it ended: pregnancy, you know); and then finally ending yesterday traipsing around makati, having lunch out (thank you cyma --and sean and suzi), hitting the theater, and then giving me a wonderful surprise ending of the day, making me fall in love with you only more and more.
i love you my love. i couldn't have asked for anyone better. i love you.
ps...more on our road trip coming...soon? i'll let you know.
