It was 9 years ago today that he and I officially became an “us.”
We promised to love each other, though good times and bad.
Though neither of us promised anything about obey.
I laughed with joy through our ceremony while Hubs cried.
It was a beautiful day.
The truth is that marriage is hard. Not all the time, but sometimes, it’s hard.
But, I can’t imagine my life without Hubs.
We created three beautiful boys together.
He makes me laugh, even though half the time his jokes are totally inappropriate.
He knows what I mean when I say vague things like “You know that girl in that movie with that guy….” even with no context.
He supports my dreams.
He doesn’t lock me in the closet or toss me out in the rain when I get cranky, even though I pretty much deserve it.
We say “I love you” multiple times a day and mean it.
Because we really do love each other.
Nine years and counting.
