Today is the day my husband and I have been married 20 years!! It’s hard to imagine that it has been that long. When I think about everything, it does not feel like it has been that long. He is an amazing man that I am so glad I met and fell and love with. There is no one else I can even imagine my life with.
Life like with everything brings changes to us and we are no different then anyone else. I’m no longer the 21 year old he married and he isn’t the 30 year old I married. We’re older, have two teenagers, and all the other hang-ons that come with life. We grew up with each other even though we were very much adults when we got married. We changed but we changed for the better. We were “in love” when we married but now we love each other. There is not a moment in my life that I don’t miss him when he is gone. He made me a better person. He helped me become a stronger woman. Like wise I made him a better man. I made him a peaceful, loving husband that shows when we’re alone and when he is with his kids. We are definitely the perfect pair.
Happy 20th Anniversary sweetheart!! I love you forever!! Here is to forever!!
What can I say, it feels like it was yesterday when we met. Yes, goodness knows we have had our share of arguments and sometimes we are both so exhausted we just fall asleep on the couch where one of us wakes the other up to go to bed. We have two amazing kids that are just now seeing the world from a teenager’s point of view and goodness knows we both feel as if we could strangle them sometimes….lol!!!
You treat me like a queen every day and night. When I wake up every morning , I love the feeling of your arms around me. When you leave, I truly cannot wait till you get back home. It’s like part of me is gone and when you come back I am completed once again, even if it is just a few hours out of my day.
They say the longer you have been married it gets lazy and uninteresting. That it becomes routine and no spontaneity is left. I completely disagree. We’ve never had that problem. We have always been two peas in a pod and just as likely to get in trouble. We have kept our lives fun and enjoyable, even though like all marriages we have had our up and downs. The making up was always more fun then anything else.
I know I may not be the easiest to live with at times. I know I have a hot temper but you are always the cool compliment to me. You always know how to make me feel better no matter how I feel. You make me see things from a different point of view. If I’m right you accept it and I don’t say I told you so, if I am wrong you never hang it over my head.
You have helped me grow as I have you. We both have more grey hairs then either of want to think about. But you know what, that’s ok. I’ll take you anyway I can get you 🙂
Being married can take a toll sometimes on you, but when you have a spouse who will truly do anything for you it makes things better. I have an amazing partner that honestly I have no idea what I would do if he was not there. He’s my companion, my lover, and truly my best friend. I could go on forever about how good he is to me even though sometimes it isn’t as good as it should be. I mean come on we’re both human…lol!!
What I am trying to say, is that I am so glad you are mine sweetheart!! I would not change a thing!! Here’s to 17 years with an amazing man, that loves me just the way I am 🙂
It funny you forget about time when you are having fun 🙂 I had completely forgot that it has actually been a year since I started writing this. I have expanded a few things and have tried to keep it running. It’s easy to forget sometimes when you get busy with life. But it looks like I made it to the first year…yay me!!!
For everyone who has followed me in the last year I appreciate it more than you will ever know. You are the ones that keep me coming back. You are the ones that listen….thank you!!
