To My Personal "Hicks" (My Husband, Mark) For Our Upcoming 5-Year Anniversary


Coincidentally, I noticed someone looking at the prior post with the below video, yesterday, in my stats.

I guess I'm feeling sentimental, lately, with my grandmother's upcoming birthday, plus our anniversary next week, and especially after adding your awesome, supportive response via phone to my first post this morning about what to do about Granny's bucket list :)


Since we'll be away, for our anniversary, I'm going to post this now - and maybe schedule it for repost it that day ...  because because words cannot express how much I love you, more and more each day, and how grateful I am, both to you and for you, in my life :)

You are the smartest, bravest, most bad-ass, most loving and supportive man I have ever known - I love you :)


As you know, I love this movie, because despite being science fiction, it accurately portrays what having PTSD is like for women, at the beginning, and how she becomes the reluctant hero anyway, by the end - and how Hicks sees right inside who she is, gets her completely, and saves her - and then she saves him right back :)

Also, how this video (made by someone else) was made, highlighting that - set to "Bring Me To Life" by Evanescence :) 

It kind of chronicles our life, too, what/who I was dealing with, when we met, in 2011, and then your stroke in 2017 - there's no better analogy lol :)


Happy Upcoming Anniversary, Hicks ...





Love, 

Ripley  



And just for a laugh, after all that sentimental, mushy stuff, here's a pic from our recent vacay, which I've entitled "Hicks and Ripley Finally Take a Vacation" lol 




LOL

I think we make a great team :)

Plus, I just think you look good, in this picture!

 (Me, not so much, makeup-less)

And lastly, of course, our song - featuring the Detroit Red Wings, of course, at their final game at Joe Lewis Arena in Detroit :)







Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere

Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

A singer in a smokey room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on, and on, and on

Strangers, waitin'
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows
Searchin' in the night
Streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin' somewhere in the night

Workin' hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win
Some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues

Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on, and on, and on ...

Strangers waitin'
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows
Searchin' in the night
Streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin' somewhere in the night
Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight, people

Don't stop, believin'
Hold on
Streetlights, people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight, people
