Interesting day today, to say the least.

It was beautiful waking up together in our new loft.  Unfortunately, I had to work a long mid-shift at Macy’s today, so I didn’t get much time to enjoy it.

Ceecee stayed home and watched the St. Patrick’s Day parade from our loft windows this afternoon.  Our loft is right on the square and the parade literally passed by right underneath the window.  She called me at lunch and told me that there were zombies in the parade and that a sudden freak hail storm hit right in the middle of it.

Tonight, she hosted a Pure Romance party for our oldest daughter.  Yes, hosted.  As in, it was at our place that we just moved in to yesterday.  I guess at least one person there wouldn’t believe that we had only moved in the day before, but, as I’ve said, my wife is amazing.

Anyway, it wasn’t over yet when I got there, so I saw and heard some very interesting things when I opened the front door.  Pure Romance, is it?  We have plenty of that right now, thank you very much!

We haven’t done one of Old Chicago’s mini-tours on the World Beer Tour since the Halloween mini-tour last year, but tonight we’re going out to start the St. Patrick’s Day mini-tour.  They have a lot of Irish beers that sound good, and they’re having a kickoff party with free corned beef and cabbage tonight, so you can’t beat that.

To make it a full date night, we’re going to the movies first to see Gnomeo and Juliet.  It seems silly and it might be stupid, but it looks funny.  My wife loves kids stuff and she’s really just a kid at heart.  

Since we’ve been back together, that has really been something I’ve grown to love and appreciate about her.  She can be silly and have fun, and she still has that childlike wonder about her.  She’s very much a woman, don’t get me wrong.  I love that about her, as well.  It’s just that the fun and the laughter have returned to our relationship and it’s like we have the best of everything right now.  We have the fun and excitement of dating, along with the love and security of marriage.  

If I could bottle this and sell it, I’d be a very rich man, indeed.
