A Love that Saved the World!

That is right, we did it. "Right... HOW did you do it though?" you may ask? Two years ago today, the infamous 12/21/12 was declared the day that would "End the World as We Know It" as mandated by predictions from a large number of iconic cataclysmically faithful figures as interpreted from the Mayan Calendar's 5,126 year long cycle that ended on that day.

Though despite all the concern, all the worry, my wife +Katie Lorando and I stepped up and faced the end of the world with style as we looked into each other's eyes and declared our vows to each other. It happened during some of the most awkward circumstances with it's fair share of doubt and worry. Though by the end of the day, my wife and I had found our place in a Bed and Breakfast as we embraced each other, now fully united and accepted among our ancestors and family in both body and spirit.

When we closed our eyes that night, we were content and happy without a care in the world and knowing that "Till Death do us Part" could happen at any moment. And yet, when we opened our eyes we found that indeed the world did not end. Our love... had saved the world. Ironically the "End of the world as we know it" still stayed true, and our world was changed forever.

The year is now 2014, and my wife and I are now on our way to adding the "Father and Mother" accomplishments to our marital banner and our lives continue to amaze us with each waking moment. Let it be known that even after the 2 years of marriage, and the additional 4 years of having been with my wife, I love her now more than I ever have. And it is a love that grows with each day if not each precious moment I get with her.

Happy Anniversary dear lover, here is to enjoying many more years together as we continue to save the world one kiss at a time!
