In all honesty, it seems so surreal to be sitting here and writing this.
I was never really one to sit and dream and think about what life would be like far into the future, and ten years of marriage always seemed like such a huge milestone to me - which it is!! It's so crazy how 10 years feels like it went by in the blink of an eye, but it also feels like we've been together forever.
I always tell my husband that I really underestimated everything that it would take to have a marriage back when we got married ourselves...do you ever feel like that?! I mean, I was only 20, and I definitely gave it some good consideration, but I just don't think I could even anticipate or wrap my head around what it really means to walk through life with a husband. When you're talking about the ins and outs, the ups and downs, all the craziness that gets thrown at you, it's hard to know how you'll react...what you'll do, how you'll feel. Looking back at everything we've been through over the last 10 years, I can say with 100% confidence that there is no one else I would want by my side.
I've never met someone so positive, friendly, outgoing, happy, even tempered...just such a good person. Having a partner who constantly helps you see the good in things, is always there to calm you down, and is not defined by normal gender rolls and helps how HOWEVER he can and does whatever is needed...I'm so incredibly thankful for him every single day.
You guys...there are plenty of annoying things...like, a lot. It's not always a walk in the park, and there are some days where it really takes work, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. It's such a privilege having him by my side.
We've become such a good team and it's amazing to me how much we've grown together over the last 10 years. I feel like my 20 year old self did a pretty good job choosing the person I would be with for the rest of my life...and I'm so thankful God led him to me. Our life has surpassed any expectation I could have possibly have, and I'm so incredibly thankful.
To think...it all started 10 years ago, with just the two of us. I can hardly wait to see what the rest of our life has in store. What a blessing it is to be his wife.
