Well, today is our twentieth wedding anniversary. Can you believe it? I cannot.
I cannot believe it, because it doesn’t seem that long ago. How has this much time passed? How are we this old?
I am so lucky to have a partner in life who still gives me butterflies, who still makes me cackle with laughter and who still agrees to travel wherever I arrange, no questions asked.
I love this man more than I ever thought possible. Growing up, I never wanted to be married. I never really wanted a family. I only wanted a dog. But lucky for me, the universe had alternate plans, and I got this amazing adventure instead. We were chatting the other day and realized that together, we’ve:
+ Visited ten countries
+ Visited thirty seven states
+ Had four dogs
+ Lived in one apartment and four houses
+ Attended hundreds of concerts
+ Had one hospital stay
+ Which resulted in one five-year-old child
+ Consumed so much coffee (especially in the last 5 years)
+ And had zero breakups
Have I mentioned how lucky I am? To have found my person so early in life? To get to have spent so much time with him? Truly, I am beyond fortunate.
Here are some photos of my sweet James on our trip this week.
