Pepper is HOT!
My wife (Pepper) and I each will turn 30 by the end of this month. Though I'm not devastated to realize that I'm nearly halfway to the average life expectancy for males in the USA, I have done some reflecting lately.
Today I was looking at Pepper and began to think about when we met at the ripe old age of 16. Boy did I think she was H-O-T....HOT! I thought about our wedding day and how I thought she was the most beautiful thing on earth. I then walked into our bedroom where there hangs a picture of us not long after being married (maybe 19-20 yrs old). Wow did I think she was beautiful then. After looking at my wife of over 11 years again, I realized I was way off base. What was I thinking? At all those times in our lives she was pretty, cute, sweet. She's just a few days from her 30th birthday and has now become Smokin' HOT.
My how your perceptions change over time. 14 years ago when we first met, I thought I had it made and that she was as beautiful as she would ever be. Now, I can't wait to see her at 40. If she keeps getting hotter at this pace, I might have to wear a welders mask to look at her so she won't burn my eyes.
Pepper, I love you more than anything... even more than yesterday.
