Ten years ago today, Husband became Husband to me.
Ten years. We’ve seen a lot.
Keenly aware of time.
Vacations had and lost.
Pizza in bed.
Chinese in the tub.
Giggling at ridiculous hours of the night.
Rose petals and raspberries.
Fleeing a scene just for white chocolate mousse.
Embracing new family and cutting others out.
Bad hair and good clothes.
Watching others make difficult decisions.
Wishing others made good decisions.
Knowing we make the right decisions.
Diet and exercise.
And trying diet and exercise again.
Old friends that are new again.
Lessons from our parents.
Messages from our grandparents.
Knowing that “normal” is the best thing ever.
But above all, love.
You are my Husband, friend, lover and partner in crime. We know love is not enough and work on all the parts that support that. Ten years have not gone by in a blink – it would be disrespectful to think otherwise. Each day has brought an opportunity to us. Sometimes we saw it, sometimes we didn’t. But each day we learned from it. And our marriage is better today than it was ten years ago with G-d’s help.
I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.
Ten years down. 240 to go.
I love you.
