How Lucky Could One Couple Be?

We heard the voice of the Captain over the PA as we descended into Las Vegas and I was in a daze amazed by the beauty of the lights. I only had a 3 hour warning that I was going to be hopping on a last minute flight to Las Vegas because of my boyfriends spur of the moment antics. I quickly packed what I could and he said if I forgot anything; we would get it there. It was the rush I had been waiting for! I would say dreaming of, but I knew this time would come. A sense of comfort knowing that I would get what I have always wanted in life!

We arrived at the Aria hotel and were personally escorted to our suite. Our room of course was high up enough to see all the beautiful lights that a Vegas night had to offer! As I looked around with joy like at little girl at Disneyland my love approached me singing, “How lucky can one guy be!” He grabbed my hand and twirled me in circles and we laughed and danced. I felt like I was on top of the world and we barely begun!

It was time for one of my favorite things to do; get dressed up! I had brought a few of those (one day you’ll have your chance to shine) dresses and I was going to be a supermodel just for my love. He had amazing patience– well considering the fact that he went down to the casino floor so he didn’t sit around the room doing nothing–when I was ready I would summon him up to get me. I was in the bathroom with my music rockin’ out and coming together nicely. I had about 10 minutes left so I gave him a ring and he said he was on his way.

Soon after he walked through the door he had champagne ordered to the room. This man was James Bond good; and I loved it! He candlelight_dinnerhanded me my glass and led me over to the huge glass window. He looked me in my eyes for longer than 30 seconds completely silent. And then a tear ran down his face. “Babe you look amazing,” he said. “I didn’t think I would receive that response,” I replied. He chucked and smiled. “Every second I have with you I thank God, sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night making sure you’re still there. And when I leave in the morning, I can’t wait to get back to you. The life path we went through just to bump into each other is one of the sweetest rides I will always appreciate; as I will always appreciate you. Even these words I use now cannot completely convey my love for you. I am blessed in your presence and was lost in your absence. I will do whatever it takes to make sure we grow, I promise you this.” After he said that I had to get to the closest tissue box possible because I had a wealth of tears from joy.

We kissed and I proceeded to look him in his eyes and smile. I said to him, “I knew you were coming I just did not know when or from where. I feel as though you just appeared one day and I knew I was never letting go. It was like God gave me a super high five and almost knocked me over! It was like God ran you through is special factory and designed you to a T just for me. I couldn’t feel more blessed. Every chance I get I thank God for putting you in my life. This will be the longest, best slow dance of a lifetime with you my love. I still feel for you now like when we first met and I would fall in love with you everyday.”

We toasted to each other and proceeded to our next venture; which was dinner. We had a fabulous night on the town and for the rest of the trip we he had all kinds of fun things scheduled. I never considered needing a vacation after a vacation until now! We were worn out by fun and people must have thought we were crazy because we were constantly laughing and having a great time. It’s like watching a magic show and when the reveal is done you are so amazed, and gratified that you don’t remember what took place in the beginning. We lived in the NOW and every moment was magnificent! We were rock stars without the drugs, and excess alcohol. We were intoxicated by each other!

As we sat down in our seats on the plane, he kissed the back of my hand and said, “Until, the next venture!”
