Sometimes you got through 25 years of life not knowing that your partner for life is right in front of your face.
You don’t know that the friend you have relied on for years and years to make you laugh and to listen to your fears was meant to do just that for the rest of your life.
‘Til death do you part.
Some things have not changed at all since we met.
We still laugh at the most inappropriate things ever.
We still feel most comfortable being sad around each other.
We still have the same friend group we did in middle/high school…they just live all over the USA.
My brothers even still call you “Curly”.
We still love Pearl Jam.
But some things are different.
We are adults now and have to think about things like budgets.
We drink wine occasionally instead of cheap beer always.
We made babies.
We argue sometimes.
We’ve gained weight.
That’s really about it.
Oh, and we have more love than we had all those years ago.
Actually, we have more love today than we had yesterday.
Because that’s how it goes when you unexpectedly fall in love with your best friend.
Each day you are amazed that this is the person you married…
and that you love him more than you did ever before this moment.
Happy 8th anniversary to us.
