The Anna and Elsa You Never Saw

As you may expect, I’m sharing more than one photo for my first Finish the Sentence Friday “Photo Share Friday.”

As you may not expect, I once got into an argument about the lovely Anna and Elsa, but specifically Elsa. In the realm of way TMI, Cassidy and I have gotten super duper better at communicating. That doesn’t mean it’s perfect, but it’s that we no longer hold so dear to potentially innocuous or irrelevant statements the other made years ago. The thing is, this past month was our fifth year of going to Disney World. And I still haven’t shared my Magic Kingdom photos from two years ago. I don’t know why! I shared my Animal Kingdom ones. I think I shared my Universal Studios ones. Magic Kingdom didn’t happen.

Or rather it happened, but you never saw it.

This is either due to the fact that I let some things slip far behind, until I can barely see them. Or it’s because it led to an argument. Cassidy posted a photo of the lovely Elsa on Facebook and said something fittingly lovely about her. I do have to tell you that I’m not a jealous person. I’m more the opposite. I’m more like, “Good. You should find him attractive.” And I’m secure enough with myself that when he finds someone attractive, I don’t mind. Credit where it’s due. I was watching a movie trailer with Cassidy recently (A Wrinkle in Time) and I could barely pick my jaw off the floor during the scene’s with Meg’s dad. Yes, it’s the same actor as in Wonder Woman (Chris Pine) but he’s all beardy and shagadelic and tormented and so darn hot I can’t take it. I don’t usually get that way but there’s something about him. I realize that sounds like a line..

The shorter story is that we don’t get jealous, unless we do. And it’s usually about something else.

I didn’t care what he thought or said about Elsa. Honey, I thought them myself. I’m not made of stone. What I cared about is that during that whole week, he posted about Elsa, but not once about me. And I felt left out. Since then, we both make sure to post photos or thoughts about traveling with each other. Really, he has done a lovely job about that. I just wanted to say then and say it now – it was never about Elsa. Or jealousy about her queenly beauty. It was about wanting to be seen, loved, accepted, cherished, desired, etc. What we all want, probably. And these photos need to be SEEN. It’s just my way.

Welcome to two years ago. I hope you enjoyed my totally weird, where-did-that-one-come-from story!

P.S. You may have seen some of these photos in passing, but the bulk has just been uploaded last night:

Des clutching desperately to his BB-8 doll just kills me.
