I love thinking back on our wedding day, and Wade and I talk about it often. We joke now about how shell-shocked we both were right after we left the chapel as the photographer followed us around telling us to do some crazy pose. Weddings are whirlwinds and wonderful celebrations to bring all of your loved ones together to share in your special day, but marriages are something even more special. They don’t get as much of the limelight since they’re not as flashy or finite, but if you’re lucky they’ll keep going and going.
Not every day is perfect. I’ve been annoyed and angry at times. However, I can honestly say that in the past 6 years, I’ve never been happier. I love how I have this one person to share all my thoughts and dreams with. A best friend to go on adventures with, to make my life so fulfilling and fun. When I think about how we met by happenstance in a crowded bar, I know that there is something greater than us out there that guided us towards each other. Who would have guessed we’d be where we are on that day so long ago when I first spotted him and thought that he was way too cool for me. He was wearing a blazer after all.
I don’t have many words of wisdom, but something I think about a lot is that you can’t force anyone to do anything. They have to do it on their own accord. Sometimes that is the hardest thing to accept. We are separate individuals, but we’ve come together to form a wonderful partnership. Acceptance, compromise, and an understanding love are important. I admire Wade for his support in everything I do and his ability to read me so well. Also, he makes dinner for me most nights. That is worth its weight in gold.
I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings us and the new adventures we have in store.
**I have to admit that I just reused this post from our 5 year anniversary. I was going to write something new, but this one just said it so perfectly, and I wanted to share it again. I did edit the photos a little, so that makes it a completely new post, right?
