Eight years ago today we pledged our lives together standing barefoot in the sand in front of family, friends, and the steel blue sea.
In the years since, we’ve ridden many bumps, fallen down and gotten back up, and held each other’s hands through trying and joyous times.
Together we built a family, a home, two careers, and countless memories.
And we are still intact. Still holding hands.
No small feat as anyone who is married knows.
Marriage is a great teacher. A teacher about how to be together, how to be alone, and how to walk, day in and day out, in the same direction.
The sand is still soft and the sun shining brightly for us my love. I look forward to all the years we have together still, to walk this road. Not one minute taken for granted.
