Do you know how long 14 years is? It’s a long time. It’s longer than either of my children have been on this earth.
Let me give you some examples. In 1997:
– Titantic was released in theaters
– The first Harry Potter book was published
– Mother Teresa and Princess Diana died
– The Hale-Bopp comet came close enough to earth to make a group of people don their Nikes
And, my husband and I said, “I do.”
Fourteen years ago today, he saw a slender, well-coiffed, non-wrinkled, perky-boobed girl walking down the aisle. Today, he sees something very different. He sees tired, stressed and, decidedly, unperky. And, most nights, I don’t even make him dinner.
I have gone up two dress sizes and wear lounge pants most days. My hair is always up in a bun and I get headaches a lot. To be honest, I’m kind of a pain in the butt.
But, he keeps on loving me through it all. For better or for worse.
And, I keep loving him too.
Happy Anniversary, Dado Fali. Thank you for marrying me.
