Five years ago yesterday I went from being a bachelor (read: lonely) to being a husband (read: blissfully happy). Five years is a pretty big milestone, and we have always and often talked about the big plans of funtivities we would do and places we would travel when we reached it, but when the time finally came, we found we had our hands pretty full with this:
So those plans will have to wait a little while. But, northeastern coast or southwestern coast or right here in the mountains, we're still joyously and quietly celebrating five glorious years of marriage, and just over a year of having added a third most splendid member to our party. Marriage has been a lot of things so far, some of which I expected, and some of which I never could have anticipated, but all of it, up, down and in between, has been just exactly what I want and need. This girl of mine is special and she really does make me want to be better in every way.
|Ah, so young. She's just as lovely though (lovelier!).|
