9 Years Ago Today

Today Billy and I celebrate our wedding anniversary. 9 years ago today, we wed in a beautiful, relaxed ceremony outdoors at my in-laws' home. It couldn't have been more perfect.

Nearly a decade and three children later, I am still in love and deeply grateful that we are together for this life's journey. We sure did this one right, baby.

Happy Anniversary.

Oh my god, you both look SO romantic and elegant and INCREDIBLE!! I am just blown away. Do you know what? You STILL both look this incredible. I kid you not. This is SO FUN to see the photos of your wedding. I just can't get over how quickly time passes. I am a lot older than you and the weeks seem like days, and the months like weeks and so on. Do you find that. Where you look at your kids and it feel like it was just yesterday you were giving birth to the first one?

It looks like you had the perfect wedding on the perfect day in the perfect dress, and each with the perfect partner.

Very beautiful and moving. Thank you for sharing. Hugs, Robin

Aww, you're too sweet! And yes, Littleman's birth seems so recent that it's impossible I've had two more children. But I have. At the same time, life before kids seems to be ancient history. Time is a funny old thing, isn't it?

Oh I wish I'd seen this sooner, it's just beautiful. And it chimes for me because it's the ten year anniversary of me getting together with R this summer, there's no pictures from back then but I can't believe it was almost a decade ago.

There must be a lot of lovely things for you to look back over from your wedding day, particularly your growing family; as Robin says it must feel like such a whirl. But then, do you feel like a different person to the one you see in the picture? Like you say, time's a funny thing.

In some ways I do feel like a different person, I guess- in predictable ways- I have more responsibilities, and that is reflected somewhat in my personality. I've had more experience now, and consequently I'm a bit more sure of myself in some things. And I am much more focused on other people now than I was then. But in some ways, I still feel exactly the same as I did then. I still just know that things are going to be OK. I still feel like I am headed in the right direction. I still feel that most people will disappoint you if you let them, but that overall the world is a beautiful, good place. I still thrive by noticing patterns of sunlight, the smell of air, the feeling of the earth under my feet. I think there are parts of me that run so deep and true, that those things will never, ever change. They've always been a part of me. I am blessed that, overall, they are wonderful things.

Geez, I hope that doesn't sound narcissistic. I don't mean it that way at all. . . it's just. . . my core? Who I am? Yes, it's the same. And I expect it to remain so. :)
