9 years ago today I married the man I knew was the one for me. He’s stayed by me through better and worse. (And I gave him a lot of worse in the beginning.) He’s supported, encouraged, taught, and corrected when needed. I know that I owe a lot of who I am today to who he is, his patience, and firm belief that I am strong, that I can be more, even when I wasn’t so sure.
A smile and a kind word from him still makes my day. I love working with him, I love parenting with him, I love the life we have together. I’m glad that most of the time he still likes me.
And he seems to be getting hotter as he ages, though that could just be me.
Happy Anniversary hon. I love you more now than I even thought was possible back then.
The photo above was taken by Courtney, the lovely bridesmaid in this photo with the Girl. Her mom took our engagement photos, and now she is grown up and married and lovely and taking pictures too. I had this photo scheduled for Wordless Wednesday today before I realized what day it was. It’s fitting don’t you think?
