Today is my first wedding anniversary. The year has flown by, and one year ago today we were getting married beside the ocean in Playa Mujeres, Mexico. This is one of my favorite pictures from the day because I think it symbolizes that sometimes looking to your past will lead you to your future.
You see, I have known my husband since 1986. We were fast friends, then dated, had lots of fun, then broke up and went our separate ways. He was always my favorite boyfriend, and believe me, I've had my share. We both got married, both got divorced, then as fate would have it, ended up together again. We took it slow and realized that all the things we liked about each other the first time were still true, and that with our age and experiences we had become better people. We are still becoming better people with the help of each other, and I cannot imagine my life without him.
Now we are entering into a new realm of parenthood and all the joys, tears and fears it may bring us. I am more optimistic about my life and my future than I have ever been, and am comforted to know that we will be together in our adventures, whatever they will be.
Happy Anniversary to my husband, who will always be my "favorite!"
