After Forever

Today is our wedding anniversary- Mr & Mrs Billingup; a date I’ll never forget, curved round my ring finger with his initials, the permanence of ink marking the impulse of a fleeting moment. Looking at it now, I can laugh at that tired old joke my girlfriends used to make, the BB of Bryan’s initials implying a best before date. Holding the last of the photographs, I wished away all traces of that day as I threw it on the fire and watched the edges curl to weightless ashes.

      1. Yes, that is pretty funny! It’s a guilty pleasure for me as well. I didn’t tell you this last night because I was on my iPhone, but I had just finished a conversation with a friend whose son is turning 18 in two months and he wants a palm tree tattooed on his neck!
