Today is a special day. It's known as Guy Fawkes day, named after a famous conspirator who told the English government off with gunpowder and explosions. But besides that, it's also the anniversary of me and Bear's relationship. We chose long ago before we even got married, that even if we forgot every other anniversary, we would celebrate our love on this day. Why would we choose this day out of any other day?
There are many reasons. One is because of the movie V for Vendetta. It's one of our favourite movies. Not horror mind you, but not all things we love have to be. This scene most of all is the reason why we celebrate our love on this day:
Bear is my roses. I fought through bureaucratic hell to be with him. To be where we are now. And we will apologize to no one for our love.
Yes, V is also based off a comic by Alan Moore, who I am a big fangirl of. I love that crazy man. He's a fucking magician, full of inspiring ideas. Ideas are important. One of the ideas is something Guy Fawkes was trying to convey with his rebellion. We need to stand up and say no when things are wrong in our lives. When people try to take our power away. We need to be inspired as people to live our lives with integrity. Ideas matter. Ideas, like the ones expressed in the above video. To me and Bear Guy Fawkes day is about ideas. Ideas live on after the flesh dies. Ideas make us better people, and make us stand up for things that matter. Ideas can also poison. They are powerful, and they are most certainly bulletproof.
Throughout our entire relationship Bear would send me roses in many forms. To remind me of our love. That no matter the distance, no matter the obstacles placed before us, we would be together. That they couldn't take away that last inch. When you care for something that much, no one can destroy it. That piece of you that is integral to who you are can only die if you let it.
So to celebrate in pure geek style I woke up to my husband cleaning the house and this cute little two-person cake he got made for us by one of his co-workers:
It was SO YUMMY! Moist and delicious chocolate cake, handmade by someone who just likes to make cakes! NOM NOM NOM! We munched on this little desert while we watched V and cuddled. Our roomie was even sweet and brought home a card for us.
We've been married for 2 years and known each other for longer. He's my best friend, my partner in crime and my soulmate. I love you baby! I hope we have many more years of roses together.
