Six

Yesterday was our sixth wedding anniversary. Sixth. Where did the time go?

B asked me if that means we no longer count as crazy newlyweds. I don’t even know anymore. We’ve decided that since it’s only been two years since our vow renewal, that we can still claim newlywed status. 

We spent yesterday doing chores. His car had to go to the shop. I had to go to work. The dog needed to be walked. Lunch was at Red Robin, dinner picked up from the counter at the grocery store. And it couldn’t have been a more perfect celebration. 

Life and love are in the every day moments. Once in a lifetime trips are amazing, but they don’t build the foundation of life. They can’t. Going through a normal day, doing errands, and still loving and living? That’s where life occurs. 

In six years, we’ve had a lot of once in a lifetime opportunities. But we’ve had even more life. Hard days full of tears. Boring days full of the mundane. Happy days full of laughter. Exciting days spent exploring. And, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
