His parents have been married 36 years as of yesterday, mine will be 32 years on Thursday.
A lot longer than us, those are the people we try to model our marriage after. We take the good from them and work toward the lifelong bond our parents have.
And tonight we celebrate 8 years of the start of our married life. We’re not doing anything fancy this year, just spending time together. I have a beautiful Gerber Daisy plant on my nightstand from my sweetheart. I adore daisies and he always remembers that.
The way he clicks 350 times a day for me on one of the MMORPGs I play. (shut up, I know I’m a gamer geek.)
And, the way he looks at me and smiles. I know that he loves me as much, if not more, than the day we said I do.
We’re not the punk looking kids that we were that day, we’re a bit older, a bit of grey here and there, a line on a face. And more in love than ever.
I love you Tony. Happy Anniversary, baby.
