The seven year itch
I won't be around much this weekend because Sunday is our seventh wedding anniversary -- so I'm putting this up now.
Seven years ago today I was on my way to New Orleans to marry my best friend. We met when I was still in my teens, and now we're both thirty. But that doesn't stop us from having water-bottle fights on the couch, belching contests, and quoting Cartman and Beavis as if they spoke the Gospel.
Our marriage hasn't always been easy. But it has always been more than I could have possibly asked for out of life -- the good always overshadowing the bad. If I knew my heart would have been capable of this much love on our wedding day, seven years later, it would have completely overwhelmed me. It still does, really. I can take just about anything life throws at me because he is by my side.
He's still the one.
Seven down. Here's to seventy more... I love you, baby!
UPDATE: Here's last year's blog-card just because...
Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...
You're making me tear up! Congratulations to you both!!¤ ¤ credit: Zuly | 05.30.03 at 03:15 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
Happy Anniversary to you both!!!!
Thanks guys! Here's a poem that was read at our wedding. I try to pass it along whenever I can...
in the Circle of Its Love"
to the best that two people can find
and bring out in each other.
It offers opportunities for sharing and growth
that no other human relationship can equal,
a joining that is promised for a lifetime.
marriage encompasses all of life's
most important relationships.
A wife and a husband are each other's best friend,
confidant, lover, teacher, listener, and critic.
There may come times when one partner
is heartbroken or ailing,
and the love of the other
may resemble the tender caring
of a parent for a child.
every facet of life.
Happiness is fuller;
memories are fresher;
commitment is stronger;
even anger is felt more strongly,
and passes away more quickly.
the mistakes life is unable to avoid.
It encourages and nurtures new life,
and new ways of expressing love
through the seasons of life.
for each other in marriage
they create a spirit unique to themselves,
which binds them closer
than any spoken or written words.
made in the hearts of two people who love,
which takes a lifetime to fulfill.
So nice to still see "true love" around...and people that "stick together" no matter what and really meant those vows. Congratulations.¤ ¤ credit: daisy | 05.30.03 at 03:31 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
