This weekend, we celebrated our anniversary. It was the anniversary of our first date, not the start of our exclusive relationship or even when I started thinking of Him as my Owner. But the meaning was the same. We both knew that we were celebrating the year that we spent together and all that we have experienced. I could go back through the archives here and dredge up all of the milestones that I have reached and surpassed over this year, but I don't want to spend time looking backward. I already feel how far we have come together and I don't want to dwell on thinking about a time that I can no longer imagine.

Our weekend was quiet and wonderful. We spent 90% of it alone together, just talking and cuddling and exploring each others' bodies. It's amazing that there are new ways for Him to touch me, even after all of this time. The look in his eyes as he moves toward me still takes my breath away. I laid in his arms and felt the world fall away from me. I slept next to him, curled up against his back. It was all so ordinary and extraordinary at the same time.

The kinky details don't really matter at a time like this. This weekend was notable, not for the lack of kink, but how seamlessly that kink is part of who we are on a day-to-day basis. It wasn't surprising when he folded his hand over my mouth to stifle my screams or scratched his nails down my back. It was normal. After each time we had sex, we still curled up together and touched noses, cooing "I love you" in the dusky darkness of his bedroom.

I'm looking forward to this next year and all that we have to experience together. And I am looking forward to sharing it all with you!

Congratulations on your anniversary!! It's amazing how quickly we all fall into our new roles, the new aspects of our relationship. It's no longer kink... it's US. Just like a husband giving his wife a peck on the cheek on his way out the door (but more fun). It will continue to amaze you that even 10 years from now, there will still be new stuff to discover :).

Congratulations :)
I've been reading your blog for quite some time and I really enjoy reading about your relationship. I could TOTALLY identify with the comment you made about how "normal" your relationship seems after awhile. It seems perfectly "normal" to me when my Daddy spanks me with his belt or slaps me across the face while we're having sex.

Mmmmm...belt :P

Coming out of hiding to "tag" you.
Yep, I'm a lurker that is usually too shy to comment, but this kind of forced me to show myself.
