10 years with Larry! May 15th, 2010

In April 2000, despite what my mom had warned me about boys and bars,  I met the most amazing guy in a bar in Worcester!  After talking for a couple weeks and a few meet ups at the bar we finally went on our first real date! May 15th, 2000 Willy's Steakhouse in Shrewsbury.  I remember it was the first time a guy ordered a bottle of wine for me, a decent one too! I was so impressed by him and loved listening to him talk about rocket scientist stuff (pulsed plasma thrusters?) and he was just such a gentleman.  We had a great dinner and evening together.   What was going to be just a summer fling of fun dates and crazy club nights turned into a lifetime of love.  What was he thinking???  We definitely didn't know 10 years later we would be spending time in hospitals, struggling with life's obstacles, and making each other laugh everyday! 
I am so lucky and blessed to have him in my life-  He is my everything!

Michael Buble
You're a falling star, you're the get away car.
You're the line in the sand when I go too far.
You're the swimming pool, on an August day.
And you're the perfect thing to say.
And you play it coy but it's kinda cute.
Ah, when you smile at me you know exactly what you do.
Baby don't pretend that you don't know it's true.
'cause you can see it when I look at you.

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, you make me sing.
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.

You're a carousel, you're a wishing well,
And you light me up, when you ring my bell.
You're a mystery, you're from outer space,
You're every minute of my everyday.

And I can't believe, uh that I'm your (woman),
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through,
And you know that's what our love can do.

Larry-  These have been the best 10 years of my life, and I promise it will only get better!  Thank you so much for your love and laughter! I love you.
Ok I promise no more Michael Buble... I'll switch to some tough gangsta rap!


  1. I heard that "Just Haven't Met You Yet" song while I was getting Somin's giraffe at the Hallmark store - of course I thought of you and it made me smile. Happy anniversary to you and Larry!!

    PS - looks like you are sharing the date with a special someone's birthday, did you hear? More smiles! :)

  2. We are happy that "summer fling" turned out to be 10 years and counting of love and commitment. You failed to mention that "guy" you met at the bar turned out to be just like your dad - a perfect gentlemen!
    Those of you who know Sarah's husband, Jesse, he too is like Sarah's dad! love, mom

  3. Happy anniversary Becky...he is a true Prince ;)
