9 years ago today I married the love of my life. Tall? Check. Dark? Check. Handsome? Check, check. Looks good in a uniform? Check, check, and check!
We've had some interesting adventures over those years. At first we basked in the euphoria of newlywed status. Then reality hit and we had to adjust to a new life. Then reality really hit and we had to decide if we were going to stay together or separate. Then baby and parenthood completely changed our relationship dynamic and life has been a bit of stressful chaos ever since. It has been great and I would never trade being a parent for anything in the world, but every parent has to admit that children have the capacity to drive a person bat shit crazy in record time. LOL
However, he still makes me laugh every day. He has taught me how to be a bit more organized in my type B hippie lifestyle, and I have taught him how to loosen up a little bit in his analytical type A lifestyle. He supports my literary career wholeheartedly and provides for me the most joyfully abundant life. We may not have brand new cars, our house may not be the best or biggest, we may have little money in the accounts, but we are rich beyond belief where it really matters. And, I love him all the more for that.
So, it has been an amazing adventure and I have loved almost every minute of it. In honor of my anniversary, I will leave you all with a song. I own NONE of the rights to this video or the music contained in it. This was the song we danced to at our wedding and it is still one of my favorite songs to waltz to. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
