Anniversary Stories: Yankee Candles

It's almost our anniversary. I can't believe it's almost here. One year already spent with this amazing man I call my husband. So to celebrate I wanna start sharing with you some of my favorite untold stories about our relationship. Here's one of my all time favorites, that will be with me for life, and I mean that literally.

 "Yankee Candles"



Around this time last year I was flying here to VA for the second time to visit my soon to be, even though I didn't know it yet, husband. We had made plans for the week since we'd be spending Thanksgiving alone but for the first night he snuck me into his barracks. He was super sweet and made it all romantic like by sneaking in a few Yankee candles & putting flowers around the room and such. He placed the candles all around, on top of the desk, on the head board, and various other places. I don't know how many of you have ever been in a barracks room, but the desk is one of those kind that has shelves above where the computer goes, like this. Please excuse my half naked husband, seriously it's the only picture I could find to show you how tall the desk is!


I remember being pretty impressed with how far he had gone to make the night special even though we were stuck in his barracks. After I unpacked and got comfy, we lied down on the floor with some blankets and pillows all snugly, to watch some TV, and of course one thing led to another... & after three months of not seeing each other I guess it got a little carried away, and we must have hit the desk a little to hard, because next thing I know I have a face FULL of candle wax and blood trailing down my face, yet for some reason I couldn't stop laughing.

It took me a minute to realize what had just happened, because even though I was laughing for some strange reason, it was pretty painful. The candle had fallen from the very top of that desk, and I do mean the very top, and landed right on that bone above my eye. He ran and grabbed a towel and tried for what felt like forever to get the bleeding to stop, all the while I was laughing hysterically. We decided the candles were a bad idea, and put them all away.


I know I have told you all the story of how romantic it was when he proposed to me out of the blue, and how we spontaneously got married. What I hadn't told you is the reason why there is an obvious cut above my eye. Yup that's right, it was there both when he proposed, and when we got married. There are even a couple pictures where we're laughing because of it while the guy is reading our vows. We took some great pictures that weekend but in every one of them you can see my awesome scar.
