I'm so glad that Bryan showed up to the church on May 22, 2010 and that he's shown up in our marriage everyday since. He makes marriage look easy, and because of him, our marriage has been full of romance, adventure and growth. We enjoy the simplicity of sitting in our backyard as much as we enjoy going on fancy vacations... as long as we're together, we're happy.
I remember when we got engaged my mom said "as long as you have fun together and you like each other, you will go the distance." I've got to say, we have too much fun together and I like the crap outta him, so so far, so good!
My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on Sunday while on a 2 week vacation to France -- They spent several days in Paris, cruised the Siene River for a week, payed their respects to Normandy and rented a villa in a medieval village 2 hours from Paris for a few days. Eat, drink be merry sums it up pretty well! I hope Bryan and I are having as much fun with each other and like each other as much as my parents do after 40 years of marriage!
Good God I'll be 69 when we're married that long... pass me a stiff drink NOW!
