I love this man.
Yesterday was our 12th wedding anniversary. We went to church, came home and fed kids, went to lunch, walked around town, browsed model homes just for fun, stopped at Wal-Mart to get auto oil, and got a Starbucks.
We are getting old.
But you know what? It was fun! We were completely relaxed and had fun getting ideas for that “someday” house. It was nice to just have nothing specific to do. That is pretty rare for a husband like mine.
So 12 years….you’d think I’d have some really profound things to say about marriage after a dozen years, but I don’t. All I have to say is, I am so blessed in my marriage. Yes, we struggle. Yes, we fight(more than I care to admit). Yes, We look much, much older today than we do in these pictures. But I wouldn’t change my choice if I could. And while I’d love to toot my own horn about how well I chose, I know that this wonderful man is truly a gift from God. I honestly didn’t know someone could love me so much even after seeing me at my ugliest(inside and out). So, here’s to a marriage worth fighting for!
Happy Anniversary, Jay.
I love you.
Remember when weddings looked like this?
I call it the “Pre-Pinterest Era”.
