14 and counting

June 17, 2009 · 3 comments

Fourteen years ago, I stood in front of my family, friends and God and promised to love, honor and cherish a fabulous man. 14 years ago.  Gah, we were babies!! {We’ve officially been married longer than my parents’ first marriage!!}

I’m pretty sure I couldn’t have picked a better guy to spend my life with; I know I couldn’t have picked a better man to make babies with – he is a wonderful father.  We’ve had our ups and downs, but we are good.  Solid.  I trusted him with my heart 14 years ago (well, 18, really) and he’s taken good care of it ever since.

With two young kids it becomes easy to forget that we were a couple first and parents second; admittedly neither of us can, nor want to,  remember our lives before the boys.  Yet we still try to make time for us – we go to dinner every once in awhile, we go shopping, we play golf when we can.  One day, when our boys leave us with an empty nest, I’ll be glad to have this man by my side, basking in the silence and warmth of years of memories.

Happy Anniversary, dweeb.
