Ten years ago today, I married my friend. I was 21 and it seemed like a good idea at the time. I got asked by a few friends and family members if I was sure I was really ready to settle down with one man for the rest of my life. My answer today is the same as it was then: I will never know if there is someone else with whom my life might be easier, but I do know that I can be happy for the rest of my life with this man.
The highlights of the last ten years aren't that hard to remember,
these two monkeys are pretty much apart of all of them. The lows aren't that hard to remember either, but the best part of every bad day is that there is always the same face by my side.
This morning I got up, went to the gym then as I was walking back in the door Jeremy was waiting to go to work, I said "hey, happy anniversary!" his response ".....oh yeah, happy anniversary" then with a kiss he was out the door. No fuss, no big deal, just life as usual, and honestly it was perfect. I feel like we've had enough drama to last a lifetime so sometimes just a simple, I still love you, is enough.
For the next 10 years I wish you nothing but laughter and joy, and I'll just be the lucky girl by your side laughing at all your cheesy jokes. ;) I'm already anxious to see what our journey might still have in store for us, and where we will be at the end of the next ten years. Until then, thank you for making me feel loved and cherished everyday. Thank you for providing for us a life that I've always wanted but mostly thank you for continuing to want more and continuing to dream with me. These dreams are what keep us moving in the same direction, and for that I couldn't be happier. I truly am happy to say ten years later that you are still my friend, and it still seems like a good idea.
All my love today and always,
