V Is For Vince

I just did a lot of visiting this past weekend, with it being our Thanksgiving up here in Canada.
Went to my sisters and my mother-in-laws on two separate days and ate tons of turkey.
But today I introduce you to the man who puts up with me and my crazy ways.
Vince.
My Vinny Barbarino.
Some of you might be too young to know who he is, but lemme just say John Travolta was the bees knees when I was a kid, and Vince is my bees knees now.
We met through a mutual friend, and have been inseparable 13 years this Boxing Day.
 He and I have been through many trials in that time and I know looking back we are forever meant to be.
Sounds a little cliché, but you just know when you will be with that person until the end of time. I know it's that way for us.
His family and I get along famously, and same as my family with his. We have all come together to be one large extended family. My mother has even dined at my mother-in-laws when she comes to town. They all get along as well.
Look, I've been with him since I was a young lady of 23. I am now almost 40. I feel like I have grown up with him, and he has seen me at my worst... my most immature time. If he can put up with me through that then we got it made!
He is kind, loving, treats his parents with respect. He is responsible, funny and always has my back. He takes care of me, my children, and my family when needed. He is all I will ever need.
He also leads me to believe that there really is someone out there for everyone. Your other half. If you're not with him or her now, I believe in my heart-of-hearts that you will be one day. Don't give up on love, 'cause when you find it, it won't give up on you.
Love you Drib.
