BC: Our journey begins...
FC: September 12, 2009
5: "And I remember the first day that we met... how could I forget..." -Erykah Badu
17: somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond any experience,your eyes have their silence: in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me, or which i cannot touch because they are too near your slightest look will easily unclose me though i have closed myself as fingers, you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens (touching skillfully,mysteriously)her first rose or if you wish be to close me, i and my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly, as when the heart of this flower imagines the snow carefully everywhere descending; nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals the power of your intense fragility:whose texture compels me with the color of its countries, rendering death and forever with each breathing (i don not know what it is about you that closes and opens;only something in me understands the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses) nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands -e.e. cummings
20: When I think of you, somehow I start to lose my words. They become jumbled in my head and none hold enough weight to describe the truly phenomenal woman you are. I've never met anyone who comes close to the caring, funny, beautiful individual that you carry off so easily. With you, there are no pretenses. There are no hidden agendas. You say it like you see it, no matter how hard the truth may be to hear. I remember meeting you and thinking "How do I draw her into my life?" You glowed with something I've never observed before or since and I needed to be near it. The truth is, you drew me into your life before our first kiss. As our relationship grew with each move and each test, I knew I never wanted to take the big leaps without you. Plans change and focuses shift but so long as I have you, I'm confident that whatever direction we head in is the right one. And it finally occurred to me that, while sometimes I'm still a selfish little kid at heart, you make me into the man I never thought I could be. You make me want to serve your needs over mine.
21: I want to be with you always, to share the best and the worst and reflect upon it all with you. My beautiful, intelligent, incomparable you. You inspire my best moments and steal my words. You make me dumb in the sweetest way possible. Saying this now, I know I've missed the mark in trying to express my complete devotion to you and to us. And I don't have PJ's natural gift for heartfelt sappiness, only my own special brand of adoration. So, I'll try to say it as simply as I can. If it pleases you Love, I vow to peel your grapes always. I vow to tuck you in and sing Tura-Lura at your bedside when you can't sleep. I vow not to try to fix every suffering you endure but to understand its nature and simply be whatever you need me to be. Like our goofy little chihuahua, I adore you with every fiber and sinew of my being and I shiver when you leave my side. So please be gentle on use by assuring you'll always return. You are my purpose and my path. My devil and my angel. You're my baby girl. And I can't wait to Tura-Lura-Lura for the rest of our lives. -Christopher Nevin Johnston
23: "Darlin wherever I go, You know whatever I do, And girl wherever I go, Know I'm thinkin' of you, That it's true I do, Your love is gonna see me through" -Eric Lindell
24: "We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout, We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out. I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around, Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson, Look out Jackson town." -Johnny Cash & June Carter
28: September 12, 2009 To Christopher and Sienna So here we are now on this enchanted day To celebrate love in the usual way The fancy clothes, white dress, the vows and the cake The dancing, the toasting, the beauty, the fate Of these two lives we each came to see and embrace How exquisite the suit, the sweet curve of her waist It's a passage, a ritual, a damn fun soiree Cherish every minute of your glorious day But to me the wedding is like icing on a cake It's the day to day struggles that a marriage makes It's the right time for these two, the dye has been set Chris and Sienna placed the ultimate bet And through my eyes, it seems that their odds are quite good Life's much more than a pretty face they understood When I think about marriage and think of these two I think passionate, patient, understandings the glue That binds them together with strength and flexibility When dealing with Chris these traits are mandatory
29: I have known Christopher since the day he was born He and I shared a bond time and space has not torn Some say difficult, temperamental- I say misunderstood It's not his fault, we dunces, did the best that we could To bend with the mood and encourage the wit Understand and embrace the dark side of his spirit We can only thank God that sweet Sienna found him Had the guts and the brains and a slight touch of maudlin Needed to see through his beauty and broodiness This Sienna Summer, a living work of art She is kind and compassionate, always leads with her heart She helps homeless moms, kids in need, find their own way Always there for her friends at the end of the day The girl knows how to party, she's ready to rock And did I happen to mention, that, Oh Yeah, she's hot So let's toast to these two lives, this one love, our tribe Congratulations, I love you, raise your glass and imbibe Love Amy
