As you can tell from the sign above, The BlackestKnight, aka Jim, and Lady StarShadow, aka Trish, are celebrating their 10th anniversary!! Amazing isn't it?? ~Laugh~ Alot of thought went into the construction of this page and since I, LadySS am the one making the page, it is going to be done my way..~Laugh~ And I'm going to be as mushy and sentimental as I like. ~Sticking my tongue out at the knight~ Oh yes, you are in for it now.. ~LOL~

Well, since this is an anniversary page, let me tell you about us. We met in November of 1987 at a gas station.. I was there because I had the hots for some guy that worked there. No, not Jim.. His best friend. ~L~ It wasn't until I ran into Jim at a bookstore in April of 1988 that he asked me out. Obviously, I said yes. ~L~ Our first real date was April 15, 1988.. I don't remember where we went on our first date.. ~L~ I think we ended up just driving around talking. See the whole time we dated, that happened alot. We would plan on seeing a movie and we would end up sitting in the parking lot talking, never making it to the movie. ~L~ And it's still that way. He is my best friend as well as being my husband. As I sit here doing this page, so many memories come rushing back to me.. I thought making this page would be easy, but it's not.. Not at all.. Him and I have been through so much over the years. How can you sum it up in a page?? We survived being separated many times. We spent our first and second Christmas apart. The first, he was in Germany and I was here in the states. The second, I was in Germany and he was in Saudi Arabia. Then there were all the times we were apart while he was driving a truck.. Too many to count..

Bk has taught alot about love and trust... He is the person I admire the most in this world.. He has never failed to be there for me, or to support me and has always caught me when I began to fall.. Which is quite often.. ~L~ There are days when I think he has more faith in me than I have in myself.. I told him, I wouldn't get mushy, but.. well, what can I say??? I lied!! He's my knight and I love him dearly.. I'm Mrs. BlackestKnight and damn proud of it..

These are some pictures I made for us. I think it fits us perfectly..~Smile~ The Knight and his Lady..

For the rose is the eye of the flowers,
It is the blush of the meadows that feel themselves fair,
It is the lightning of beauty that strikes thro' the bowers
On Pale lovers who sit in the glow, unaware.

Love is friendship that has caught fire.
It appers as quiet understanding,
trust, sharing, and forgiving.
Love remains loyal through good and bad.
It settles for less than perfection
and make allowances for human weakness.
Love feels content with the present;
it hopes for the future;
it doesn't brood over the past.
Love includes the day in, day out, chronicle
of irritations, problems, and compromises;
the small disappointments, big victories,
and common goals.
If you have love in your life,
it can make up for a great many things you lack.
If you don't have it,
no matter what else you have
it never feels enough.

Two souls with but a single thought,
Two hearts that beat as one.
-Fredrich Halm
