On July 4th, 1994, we got married in the living room of the the house that we still live in today... and I couldn't be happier about that.
In the years in-between then and now, we have done some pretty cool things together... we have traveled, we have made really great meals, we have sat on the couch and read in companionable silence; we have laughed uproariously in bed about exceptionally silly things; we have worked on making our home a livable space where our family can continue to thrive; we have been and still are involved in state, local and national politics; we have cheered for successes in each other's careers; we have consoled each other after disappointments; we have nurtured a wonderful child; we have served our church and attempted to live our faith as best we can; we have fallen asleep on the couch when we could have been doing uh... other things. We have held hands in the bookstore; watched MST 3000 together... and so many more great things that I can barely get my head around them.
It's been 14 years, and we have lived!
We have lived lives made better for the presence of the other.
I'm a better man because of you.
