Ten Years

Today is our tenth wedding anniversary. When we got married, I was only 20, not even old enough to indulge in a glass of champagne (legally at least) to celebrate. My husband was only 23. We had nothing but each other, and a newborn expecting us to get our proverbial shit together and take care of him. Here we are, ten years later, and we've been through so much to get here. We've built this life, and now have two amazing sons to share it. We're both so different now, than the kids who made that pledge so many years ago, who didn't know what those words truly meant. Now they seem to take on much more significance. They're no longer abstract ideas of what love is.
Normally I don't get all sentimental about anniversaries, or commemorating certain days. But I feel like this is something BIG, something worthy of celebration. And so I shared it with all of you :)

I liked that line about love not being an abstract idea anymore. So true.
