It’s our anniversary!
That’s right, Smoochy and I celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary today. The fact that we have been married for a decade – a decade! – is blowing my mind.
There’s no easy way to sum up the last ten years really. We’ve had some really great times together – the greatest being the birth of our daughter and some pretty crappy times together – the worst was losing his Mom. Between the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, life has happened. Our relationship has grown and matured as have we. We’ve learned that life doesn’t always work out as neatly as we naively thought that it would, but that as long as we remember that we’re playing for the same team, all is well.
A lot of people are down on marriage, quick to quote divorce statistics or tell stories about couples they know who didn’t make it. Well, I’m here to testify on marriage’s behalf. It is wonderful when you’ve got the right person on your team. It is not always easy, but I haven’t found it to be nearly as much work as people claim it to be either. I love being married. I love knowing who I’m coming home to and who’s coming home to me. I love the peace and security of our home. I love the fact that we can crack each other up with just a look. I love knowing that he knows how crazy and weird I can be and that he loves me in spite of (or maybe because of) my quirks. I love that my daughter’s father is my husband and that she is crazy about Daddy!
Marriage? Highly recommended by yours truly.
Happy Anniversary Smoochy! I love you. Let’s dance.
