Happy 2nd Anniversary My Bride

Two years ago today Mrs. Twisted and I were joined in marriage. For those of you who know us personally you already know that we don’t really fit the mold of normalcy and we are happy with that. At times we are very traditional and then we take a step to the left or right and live life with every day as a new experience. We began this marriage riding down the isle in a pink Cadillac convertible driven by a Young Elvis Impersonator and the wind has been in our hair since. New ideas and fun at every turn on our journey together.

Cotton is the traditional gift for the second anniversary but I wanted to do something with it other than sharing some fabric, even though we both love to shop for new fabric.

I took each letter in the word Cotton and related it back to Mrs. Twisted and I or how I feel.

Creativity: I have never met someone who inspires me to be more creative. She accepts me and encourages my thoughts and follies without judgment. Together we share a creative thought process that amazes me. We know each others thoughts and yet we both have different pieces to the same puzzle. The pictures on this blog are mostly her visions and my application of the camera to capture the image in her mind.

Ocean: One earthly entity that we both need to have in our life is the ocean. We go to the beach Each Christmas morning and take in the cleansing effects of the fresh air and are always in awe of the power and how it makes you feel so insignificant but you can live in concert with such an incredible power. Our first date was to the beach. We would live on the beach if we could.

Tangential: Ok now why this word? We are two separate forms that fit perfect next to each other but we are still our own shape. We don’t intersect and form hard transitions but we merge smoothly and seamlessly and without effort. We live our lives as one but still have the ability to enjoy our own path and yet we love to share the interest of the other.

Thegither: I feel empty when we are apart. Like part of me is missing and when we reconnect again life feels complete. I know in some ways the over thinks may not find it healthy to enjoy another company like I do with my bride. I don’t think anyone can explain it so I just feel grateful that we share the same desire to share our lives together.
I saw the word long long ago but now I understand the meaning. Happy We Are Thegither from the Scottish poem

Opaque: We appear that way to most people. There is more going on under the surface that what appears on the surface. Solid thoughts, feelings and actions. To each other we are transparent and as one. We can read each other and know when there is something not right. We can feel the emotions like they are happening to both of us. We hold the wall around us from previous life experiences but stand together. We can experience twice the joy and share the sorrow or pain with the other and know it’s only half as bad.

Nouvelle or Nuovo: Always new… We are always looking to share new things and love the comfort of the each others company. We never run out of things to talk about. We can go to the same place and see something new or enjoy the emotions like it’s our first time. Give us a full tank of gas and we have a road trip, and bench near the ocean and we have an afternoon of knitting or just enjoying the peace and tranquility. The work week is just a bumper between times we share living life looking for the next new thing. Work to live and not live to work.
