Happy Anniversary to the Kitty Loving Couple that put the GLO in GLOGIRLY

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, what's it like to be an old married couple? 

KATIE:  How would I know, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  Because you're old and we're a couple?

KATIE:  Waffles, you're on thin ice. 

WAFFLES:  Ice? But it's not even winter. 

KATIE:  Waffles, today is Glogirly and Gloman's wedding anniversary. THEY'RE the only couple around here. You and I are not a couple. Understand?

WAFFLES:  Are you sure? Maybe we could elope or something.

KATIE:  Waffles, we can't elope.

WAFFLES:  You mean like melons?

KATIE:  *sigh*

WAFFLES:  Is a wedding anniversary the same as a Gotcha Day? Did they gotcha each other? Like from the shelter?

KATIE:  I'm pretty sure they didn't get each other at the shelter. That's not usually how it works.

WAFFLES:  They got YOU at the shelter though, right? Isn't it your Gotcha Day too? Will you tell me the story again, Boss? Will you?

KATIE:  Fine, Waffles. If you promise to behave. No food stealing, no fur sniffing and no meowing back.

WAFFLES:  Got it, Boss. Food, fur, meow.

Once upon a time...
KATIE:  I bet you didn't know that this is the photo that started it all. It was the picture we used on our very first blog header way back when I started every blog post with, "Hi Everyone, Katie here."

I was an anniversary present. A nice man with kind brown eyes and a deep voice adopted me for someone he said was very, very special. This special someone had no idea what he was doing. It was going to be a HUGE surprise. He'd been hinting around ... telling her that he was working on her anniversary 'kit.'

She was thinking maybe a kit for washing her car, or a kit of accessories for her iPod or something.

Little did she know, 'kit' was short for kitten.

It was love at first sight.

Gloman's given Glogirly some very special anniversary gifts over the years. He's always really creative and silly about how he gives her presents. Sometimes he'll hide cards by her toothbrush or tucked inside her makeup bag. One year he hid a beautiful watch in the refrigerator next to the milk and butter.

But the most special gift of all was a little black and white kitten with a purple bow around her neck and a tiny little tag that read, "Happy Anniversary."  

The Story Behind the Story
Over the years we've shared the hopelessly romantic story of how Glogirly and Gloman met. ...and how they came to be Glogirly and Gloman. If you're new to the blog and like a sappy love story, turn off the Lifetime channel and click the story link below. If you already know the story and want to read it again, well that's your problem. 

It's proof that love is everywhere. 
And when you least expect it, love might just tap you on the shoulder.

Prayers ♥︎
Our hearts are heavy with concern and fear for our friends in the paths of so many natural disasters hitting our beautiful country. We're praying for the people and pets of Texas east to Florida, for those that have been hit by Harvey and are in the path of Irma. 

There's a blanket of smoke hovering over our Colorado mountains that is a constant reminder to us of the terrifying and devastating wildfires raging from California and Oregon to Montana and Wyoming. The west is truly on fire. Be safe, our friends.
