Introducing...

...my sweet, beautiful Becky!

This has been a while in the making. Alas, the connection on Skype wasn't the best. Often, when the connection WAS good, I never thought to snap a picture of her.

Finally - FINALLY! - I had the presence of mind to not just get a pic, but one of her with that dazzling smile of hers.

When she was here, she read something to me that I discovered was all over the internet. Sometimes it's presented as poetry, and at other times it's just a paragraph. Regardless, Becky deemed it pertinent to our relationship. It goes like this:

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot,
Who calls you back when you hang up on him,
Who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat,
Or will stay awake just to watch you sleep.
Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead,
Who wants to show you off to the world when you're in your sweats,
Who holds your hand in front of his friends,
Who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on,
One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares,
And how lucky he is to have you.
The one who turns to his friends and says, "That's her."

All of the above...? Done it, with the exception that I didn't listen to her heart while lying under the stars. And much if it was before we'd met face-to-face. The pic at the start...? That's Becky after a long, hot day. I still think she's as beautiful as ever...dressed down...no makeup...The only accessory she needs is her smile, and that jjust makes her leap from beautiful to positively stunning.
