Today my husband and I have been married for 5 years. All at once it feels like no time has passed and like a lifetime has passed.
On September 21, 2001, this man asked me to marry him. I felt like the most special girl in the whole world. Out of everyone he could have chosen to be with, he wanted to spend his life with me.
We were married July 6, 2002, and our wedding was one of the happiest days of my life. We had a beautiful ceremony, we were surrounded by families and friends who loved us, and we were beginning the next chapter in our lives.
Since then, we have laughed a lot and cried only a little. We have helped each other through tough job situations, a trying home sale, moving, sleepless infant nights. We have discovered each others weaknesses and leaned on each others strengths. We have born two children and delighted in them.
Five years ago today I never thought I could love someone any more than I did that day. Every day since has shown me that I have.
