I am very thankful for my husband and my marriage. Having a supportive, equal partner who loves me is amazing. I have learned in the past ten years that marriage is a lot more work than we thought it would be, and that life doesn’t just fall into place in fairy-tale fashion. I have also learned that I found Princess Bride style true love while being myself ten years ago, and it is worth every iota of energy and more to keep our relationship as healthy as it deserves to be.
Today, Paul and I took a long walk, through the Botanical Gardens and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, and I thought about how lucky we are to have each other. And so, I present, a throwback to 2006 and the beginning of our love story:
The rest of my life is very different from what I thought it would be a year ago. I’ll adjust to that. I’m still adjusting to happiness.
