Tuesday, March 23, 2010 in what a guy I married




Twenty years of marriage.

Today I have been married for twenty years. Huh. Well, would ya look at that. I have also officially spent over half my life with him.

He can even still surprise me.


I used to think that being married this long would be boring. Now I would do just about anything for a boring day. I could not even imagine being married to one person – just ONE – for all this time. Now I have one whole person who is my best friend, who pushes me to do better, who knows me better than I know myself, who loves me even when I drive him crazy.

We’ve been joking for the last week or so, trying to hang on for “3 more days” to make it this far. Saying after this, we’re staring down the barrel of another 20.

But oh! How lucky we are to be able to say those things in one breath and plant kisses in another.
