Unlonely

Thirteen years ago today:



How could we have foreseen that thirteen years down the road we'd have traveled to Costa Rica together, weathered turbulent law school years, aborted a wanted pregnancy, become parents to two amazing boys, and be pursuing interests in childbirth and urban planning?

At the time we just knew that nothing had ever felt so certain, so comforting and so fortuitous as being together. I'm happy to say we still feel that way, even though we now know each other through and through and have been at our worst around each other. Are there moments we want to head-butt the other? Of course. Have we hurt each other's feelings? Yes. Would we change things about each other if we had the power? Duh!

But we still feel like there is no other person we can imagine or would want at our sides as we learn and grow through life.

Happy Anniversary!
I pulled up your site and my husband just glanced over and said
"WOW what a beautiful photo! Please tell me you know these people and they are still together!"
I said, yup... at least online I do (I explained you were the B. Cockburn fan). He read your words and wants to pass along his congratulations on such a great marriage too! And what a great photo it is indeed!
Many more years of joy and happiness to you both! We are coming up on 8 in a few weeks. In fact we get posession of our home on our anniversary! yipee!

It's pushed your sidebar down.
