“I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.”
– The Vow
It’s amazing to think that XC and I have been married only a little over 1 year now. To me, it feels like May 30th was years ago and we’re going on our 10th wedding anniversary. I think I learn more than I expect to learn as a newly wed. Compromising, sharing, living with another person (not to mention sharing a full size bed with another person) really teaches you a few things about yourself. I’m also learning this is okay…. and actually, much better than forcing myself into some category or sentence of “who am I.”
Overall, the past year of marriage has been just fabulous. We’ve definitely had our bad minutes, or days, and on occasion weekends, but the good days definitely outweigh the bad ones.
You smile. I smile, honey.
