Happy Anniversary

 Nine years ago today, giddy and positively overflowing with joy, I married my best friend. That moment was quite easily the happiest single point of my life.

While the ensuing nine years have been nothing I could have imagined, marrying David is still the best decision I ever made. We have travelled together for more than half my life, but the nine years as husband and wife have given me the greatest happiness and deepest sorrow, all of which makes me more human, more complete, more capable of love and closer to being the person I came here to become.

Our story is here, documented more for our posterity than for anything: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. No, I don’t actually think anyone is going to read all that! Talk about naval gazing… Anyway, happy anniversary David. I love you. (Picture was taken in Yosemite, on the trail next to Vernal Falls)

    Yeah, I think I’ll have to get back to that epic story at bedtime…. :)

  3. This was as fun to read the second time as it was the first. What a great story you two have! I like that it is written down for your kids. Happy Anniversary!! Being married to your best friend is an amazing gift.

  4. Just read your story. So amazing, thank you for sharing it! What struck me 2nd (after the love and patience of your hubby) is that it happened despite everything else. That God still gives us great things when we screw up.
    Grateful to know you!
