10 years of marriage is 7 children, 2 homes, 5 jobs, 1 Bachelor's Degree, 3 Master's Degrees, 5 baptisms, 43 birthdays, and one funeral. Its our anniversary by the numbers. We have been married for 10 years. But we have been together for 17 years. So, why does it feel like we are still newly in love? Why is it that nothing is more fun than making the other person laugh? Why is it that we are always on an adventure or being goofy?
I can't imagine a better partner in life. We truly are a team. We make one another better. We make it worth while. We make it fun.
I ran across this quote today. And I can't think of a better quote for us and for our marriage.
“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
― Dr. Seuss
So, the next time you see us wearing mustaches, having a water fight, telling one another 'I don't like you' or 'I can't wait until we can have separate bedrooms'. Just know that we have found our mutual weird partner and called it love.
