Once upon a time...

... a beautiful, wise, talented and funny princess was born.
She charmed all she encountered. Birds would sing her to sleep each evening. Wild animals would nuzzle her awake each morning. She could tame the savage beast with a mere twinkle in her eye, and princes and knights from lands far away traveled o'er hill and dale to catch but a glimpse of her alabaster skin and emerald eyes.
But none of these suitors were quite what the princess wanted for her prince.
Frog Kiss
No, she longed for someone special. Someone different. Someone who would see past her blinding good-looks and outward charm, and love her for her inner beauty.

And let's face it, looks like that are hard to get past.
We Are Not Worthy

Well, just as our princess was about to give up hope that she would ever find a prince,
I Give Up
she met someone.

Because she had so recently decided that no man was worth this time, she held off on believing that this man could be the prince she had dreamed of for so long. And the prince was healing from some battles of his own.
So they decided to be "just friends."
I Like You

And they grew as friends, closer and closer. They talked about everything. Their hopes, their dreams, and what their future would hold. The prince was charming, handsome, funny, kind, strong, brave, and honorable. And for some reason (see above descriptions) he liked the princess pretty good too. As they grew closer, they grew to love each other, in a way that was new and different to both of them. But they insisted on staying "just friends" despite the feelings that both were hiding inside.
Dream Kiss 2
After all, they had both been hurt so many times before.
It's Over 1It's Over 2

But finally, after years of denying it, they both realized the truth was hiding in plain sight.
Peek A Boo

They were in love, and it was time to admit it.
Couple 2

After years of denying, the prince finally confessed his true feelings
Kiss On The Hand
and the princess admitted her feelings were the same

Soon (well, six years after it all began) they were married
Bride And GroomWedding Cake
and their love grows to this very day.
I Love You MugI Love You Mug 2

In fact, it is on this very day, that our beautiful Princess hereby makes an official decree
"I henceforth proclaim that May 18th shall forever be known as "Googly Bear Day!"
Happy Birthday

And they lived happily ever after.

Well, Happy Birthday to your GB! (And I'm glad you explained that - I always wondered what the GB stood for.)

Well, I will fully explain it then!

We took his son to see Monsters Inc when it was in the theatres. Mike (the big eye) and his girlfriend called eachother "Googly Bear" and "Schmoopy Poo". GB leaned over to me in the theatre and said "I'm gonna call you Schmoopy Poo from now on, okay?" and I said "Only if I can call you Googly Bear!" and the names stuck!

It's always so wonderful to see a couple that truly loves and appreciates one another. It gives me hope that there really might be such a thing as happily ever after. did those tests come out? I've been thinking positive thoughts in your general direction.

When we started calling each other "pet names" I started with the classic Dear, my hubby (of course bf then) retorted back "Yes, Antelope" and the name stuck for awhile.
