Yes, I have a date tonight, and yes, I will be wearing these shoes! It is our anniversary. Frank and I have been married for five wonderful years. Five years ago today, I was a very excited bride. And wow, it was one of the best days of our lives. Really. I could go on and on about our wedding, but really in the end, don't we all just want a marriage, not just a wonderful wedding? Well, I have been blessed with both.
It has been a good five years. Three kids, three mortgages, acquiring a family business, losing someone we both loved so much, lots of Friday night pizza, and most of all, lots of love.
This morning, across the kids in our bed, Frank whispered "Happy Anniversary" and yes, it will be. And the next, and the next, until death parts us. I am madly in love with this man, he is my soul mate, really. Although I am high strung, high maintenance, and he is so laid back that sometimes I ask him if he is still alive, it just works for us.
So, my love, thank you for marrying me. I so got the better end of this deal!
