Lately it seems that everywhere I look, from FB friends, and blogs I follow, people are celebrating anniversaries. I was teaching middle school when my husband and I were married, so of course we also chose a summer wedding date. I can’t believe it’s been 8 years today. (With almost 8 years dating before that…)
But here we are.
Has it been all roses and dreamy looks? No, life is not a fairy tale. Marriage is work. Those first 2 years were the hardest, so if you are in those early years, hang in there! (And COMMUNICATE! Boy, that would have saved us a few teary nights if we hadn’t worried about hurting each other’s feelings and just TALKED…)
But off my soapbox. It’s been 8 years and 2 beautiful babies for my husband and I. And if things work right, we’ll have a sitter tomorrow night so we can go on a date (my fingers are crossed here).I’ll take my real life over a fairy tale any day.
