I don’t know why, it isn’t really the right day, but we decided that our anniversary should be celebrated on All Hallows Eve, commonly known as Halloween. In many ways this is quite appropriate: today is the day when all the old, bad spirits come out of hiding and are then shoo’d away, sent back into the shadowlands of their pitiful existence. It is, like New Year’s Eve, a time when people can look back at what has happened and, on All hallows, start afresh with the good spirits, with everything that is right in life. As with the traditional New Year’s Resolutions, they have a chance overnight from October 31 to November 1 to cleanse their soul.
As I say, it isn’t really the right day to celebrate our anniversary, but we have been together two years now. The time has flown by, I can hardly imagine that it has really been so long.
All I can say is, I don’t regret a single one of those days. Not a single one.
Fine, we’ve had our ups and our downs just like any other couple. We’ve argued and made up, we’ve stamped around and – once I think – thrown things. But we’ve never, not even once, considered ending this love affair we began two years ago.

In some ways it still feels as if we are in the honeymoon week, even if we haven’t taken advantage of the laws in Germany which would allow us to marry, to form a binding civil union. Will we ever do that? Perhaps, one day. But for now we’re just going to quietly celebrate our togetherness, just the two of us.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
