Ten Years


We were kids.
My hair was blond.
We had plans and schemes.
We thought we had life figured out.
We were optimistic.
We loved each other.


We are older, and yet we know less somehow.
My hair is dark brown.
We have three kids.
I have a million stretch marks.
Our plans have changed.
We realize how little we actually have figured out, and even less have control over.
We are still optimistic even though we have experienced the deep pain and disappointment that life can sometimes bring.
We love each other more greatly and deeply now than we ever thought we could have.

Thank you my darling, my love and my everything for a crazy, fun, funny, beautiful, hard, and exciting life-- My love to you on this special special day.
