Get out your hankies

This is my wife Amy . . . if you have been following this mess of a blog for any amount of time you've seen that she can not only ride a skateboard drunk , cook an amazing array of meals , but she is the mother of my son , & can sell skateboards to anyone in the world . She keeps a tidy house , and can put a 9mm round center mass ( if you're standing fairly still or moving around slowly ) . She rides on the back of an old Harley & drives a slammed 2003 F-150 pick up truck to work every day .

In the past she's owned a 1964 Fairlaine with a HO 302 , a 1957 Ford , a 1963 Galaxie and they were all daily drivers . She never complained once when we went to Paso Robles every year for the shitty old car party we used to attend in my long list of drafty chopped up old heaps . We've been to countless early morning swap meets and flea markets and spent never ending hours digging through rusty old car parts trying to find that one gem in the piles of junk .

She usually has 3 different bags of candy in her purse for if you're a good boy and wears a knife in her boot for just in case you're not . She makes crafty things for her friends and would rather stay at home with her crazy family and watch a cartoon alien movie for the 30th time than go out and party on the town . She lets me get a little drunk with my friends but will also let me know when I'm getting a little too drunk and reels me back in when I try to flip a pool table over because someone said some weird shit at the bar .

She likes that I wear Old Spice and can ride any kind of motorcycle ever made and lets me work in the garage for hours without bugging me . She knows when I need a cold drink and even knows when to make it extra strong . She knows when to speak her mind and wont back down , but she ( mostly ) knows when to shut the fuck up too .

I've had a good long run with Amy . She started out as a customer at the tattoo shop , then became a friend , then a friend with benefits , then a full time girlfriend and eventually ( after a few trials and tribulations ) my wife .

I've made some good decisions along the way & I feel pretty lucky to be where I am in my life right now so I'm sharing .

On 4/9/12 I celebrate 20 years with my wife, and I'm only 38. Reading your post made this Whisky bent fool almost cry. Love can be hard sometimes but if its with the right person it's always worth it. Good luck to you and your familiy.
