9 Years Of Wedded Bliss

Brian & I are celebrating our 9 year anniversary today.  Sometimes it seems longer than that and sometimes I find myself wondering where the time has gone so quickly. Where did the 2 young people who lived only to play softball go?  That cracks me up when I think about it.  I can remember times when we actually said to each other “We’ll play til we die!  We’ll never give this up.  We’ll always travel around like this and play in tournaments every where.  We will play ball until we die!”  Ha!!  And we really believed that too.  It’s so funny to me now.   I can’t imagine doing that anymore.

I don’t know if there’s any such thing as wedded bliss past the first year of marriage.  Maybe for some lucky fairytale people, perhaps.  But one thing that I have learned so far is that marriage really does get better as time passes.  We’ve had lots of struggles and hard times and even a few times of uncertainty, but there is something to be said about sticking it out together and learning from each other as the years pass. It is not a fairy tale, but it is something better than that because it is real life.  And let’s face it, life sucks sometimes.  If you can manage to keep your marriage intact through all of the crap that life deals at times, then you are doing pretty good in my book.

God has blessed us with 2 beautiful girls.  Raising a family together creates a bond that makes all of those previous times of uncertainty and hardship so worth it.  I look forward to seeing how our family grows together as our life continues.

Happy anniversary, Honey!  Softball or die!  🙂

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
    The Captain and I have been at it for 15 years now and I love him more each day.
    It is something that has to be worked on. The lines of communication must stay open at all times and the respect must always be at high levels. Oh yeah, and sex comes in there somewhere too. tee hee
