I didn't ring in the new year at a big bash with lots of people.
Just he and I.
He brought me a glass of wine, kissed me on my lips, and held up his class to cheers.
"Here's to the first of many!"
...because this is how I had always imagined it...
...being with the one I loved...
...knowing just being together was enough...
...and wishing to be together for many years to come.
