16 years and counting...

It has been a while since I have taken time to sit down and write, but I didn’t want today to pass without trying in my limited way to celebrate Mile 16.  It’s easy to mark our 16 years together with the big events – welcoming two girls into the world, saying goodbye to people we love, building our first house, promotions, vacations – but the truth is that who we are together is made up of small, maybe even insignificant moments that have made us “us.”  The quick kiss as we run out the door for work.  Impromptu cravings for spicy fried chicken.  Waiting for Arrested Development to return to TV.  Sushi dinners.  Feeding the dogs. Thursday night crazy cleanings to get ready for the house to be cleaned.  Making Good News Club snacks.  Jumping on the trampoline with our girls. Laughing.  Lots of Laughing.
Thanks for sticking it out with me all these miles, all these years.  In your cool, calm, patient way, you have been my biggest cheerleader.  You have taken good care of our family and somehow keep loving me despite my flawed way of starting things that don’t get finished, spending way more than my share of the money, working way too late much of my life, and losing my cool instead of counting to 10.
You are a perfect balance for me, and I am overwhelmed that I get to live life with you.  I genuinely love and respect who you are to me, to our girls, to your colleagues, to your friends, and to my friends.
Happy Anniversary to you, my best friend, my “other half”, my love.

    but I find this topic to be actually something that I
    think I would never understand. It seems too
    complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
