It’s Been a While
I know it’s been a while since I last posted, and I thank those following me for sticking around. I welcome new people, and I hope you will continue reading, as I hope you will stick around.
A lot has happened since my last post, and I hope that you will find the story entertaining and endearing enough to hang around.
My Crazy Life
My last post was angry and hateful, which was what I felt at the time. I don’t apologize for feeling that way, and I MIGHT apologize for how it came across. I was truly full of spite, and it came out earnestly; however, I probably could have held back a bit in how I presented myself. For those offended, I sincerely apologize.
The Tides Turn
The last time I commented on my “boyfriend,” Elvis, things were uncertain, if anything. I was hanging on a wing and a prayer with him, just hoping that we would make it through the next day without him deciding his life was better without me, as pathetic as that may sound.
Let me tell you, I am the first person to admit when I am wrong about someone and I was WRONG about him.
I said he was narcissistic and entirely about himself. I cannot be more humbled in my opinion of this extraordinary man.
There was a time when all he cared about was himself, and that is a condition most can never overcome. He did.
Since the last time I spoke about him, we have been virtually side-by-side 24/7…and this is not exaggerated one bit. During that time, we have grown closer, started a business together, gotten engaged, married, and lived through the most rewarding and challenging experiences in either of our lives.
A Changed Man
Honestly, I have never believed that a person could change wholeheartedly, basically changing their DNA. But this man did. He changed from being a womanizer to being the most loveing, attentive man I could have ever hoped for.
I am not shure how or why this changed occured, being with him day in and day out for almost a year proved that he was different.
Don’t get me wrong, he still has his demons. He is a Navy vet with PTSD. He has issues with alcoholism. He struggles every day. But somewhere during our time together, I knew he was different. He was the man I knew he could always be. The man of my dreams. Everything I’d always wanted. My husband.
Sometime in July, I don’t know why, I decided that the time was right. I popped the question. I asked him to marry me. He said “yes,” and I was the happiest woman in the world.
I didn’t pressure him to a time frame, but we booked a trip to Vegas, and on his request, we scheduled to get married while we were there.
We were only the second couple in history to be married by Elivs in the famousLittle Chapple of Hearts in Vegas by “Elvis.” He cried during the entire ceremony. So did I. Our love knows no bounds, and I can only hope that the rest of the world experiences a love like ours.
We are not setting pretty. We have many challanges before us, but I have no doubt that we will overcome all that is in our way. We have faith in one another and in our future, and we will purserviere.
What’s to Come
I don’t know what the future holds for us. But this I know: we continue to have many adventures and will together, and we will overcome anything together.
If I have any message to offer to anyone reading? Don’t give up on anyone. They might just surprise you.
