Real Life Magic

Everyone will tell you marriage isn’t magic and fairy-tales aren’t real. They’re right because they’re thinking about it all wrong. I think the magic we are looking for is in our reach every ordinary day.

If only we opened our eyes, listened to our own laughter, and read our own story.

HAPPY 5 YEARS TO US!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO US! How truly joyful to be here! We had big plans to celebrate 5 years in a big way. And then you know, THE THING THAT SHALL NOT BE NAMED, entered into the picture and all such big plans have been postponed.

At the time I’m writing this, we don’t have Plan C figured out for how we’ll celebrate, but I mean, we made up Birthday Observation Day that happens yearly on March 18, so I THINK we’ll be just fine in the celebratory department. 🙂 We know how to throw a party and have a good time. It’s one of my favorite things about our marriage.

This spring I wrote a poem that sums up our love story. I hope these 5 years can be folded into 50 more years. . .100 if I’m dreaming big. We’ll still be laughing. Of that I’m sure. Over time, I’ve discovered laughter to be our greatest strength. Not even the worst of seasons has stolen our ability to laugh hard and heartily together. What a gift.
