This week instead of doing a typical post on decorating, I thought I’d share about how happy I am to be celebrating 9 years of marriage! It’s a big deal to us because we were married back when we were quite young, got divorced, and then many years later we found one another again. We’ve been together every day since. One day I’ll share the entire story, but the point for this post today is to celebrate that we are here! Marriage is no doubt a lot of compromise, compassion and somedays just plain hard work. The good news is that when you find your “person”, you know that no matter how mad you are, you can’t imagine your life without them anymore. They are your best friend. The one you want to share life with.
So this week I’m blessed that I get to celebrate 9 years of marriage with my person. I get to reminisce about that day 9 years ago when we had one of the most special days of my life. We had a small wedding with family and just a very few close friends. My son walked me down the aisle. It was like him giving Duane permission to marry me and join our family. Such a sweet moment in my memory.
Thank you for letting me sit in these memories today, and share just a piece of them with you.
