Today my husband and I celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. Twenty one great years as husband and wife, 5 wonderful kids and 5 different houses on two different continents.

I was lucky to have found someone special to have shared my life with from an early age. We have grown up together. (Although he is the older man three years my senior which at 16 was probably more than enough to freak my parents out.) I have been married to my husband for more than half of my life.

Our marriage has been a wonderful journey. And like any journey it has had it plateaus, peaks and valleys.

We have agreed and disagreed. We have fought and we have made peace. We have spoken calmly and we have yelled. We have spent time together and we have spent time separated by thousands of miles. We have read each others minds and we have been clueless about what the other was thinking. But no matter what, through it all, we have always loved each other.

Marriage is about constantly working at improving your relationship. It is about learning to appreciate things the other cares about. It is learning to take balance your own feelings with someone else’s. It is about mutual respect and it’s about communication. It is about growth and about love. Above all it is about true friendship.

Honey, it’s been a wonderful and exciting journey so far. I am looking forward to many more years of getting to know you better and better.

And if these pictures each taken before we met don’t prove that we were meant to be together, I don’t know what will. (Hope I am not in trouble now.)

Happy 21st Anniversary Hun! And I think you are romantic as well.
