10 Years

I wanted to take a moment to mark the momentous occassion of being married to my wonderful hubby for 10 years. I won't call them magical, but I will say they have been pretty special. 10 years ago I could have never imagined the journey we have taken thus far. I can remember thinking that we had already overcome obstacles different from our friends and that married life would be "easier". Well, as anyone who has been married knows, sometimes it's easier, but sometimes it's a whole lot worse. I won't say that these past 10 years have been easy, but they have made us who we are and strengthened our love, committment and faith.

So let me give you a snapshot of our journey over the past 10 years..........
  • 4 years of marriage pre-kids
  • 4 different states of residence
  • 5 new cars
  • 1 hospital birth
  • 3 homebirths
  • 1 child hospitilization
  • 5 years of consecutive pregnancies and nursing babies (did you know our oldest and youngest are 4 years and 6 days apart)
  • 3 nannies
  • countless camping trips
  • 4 months of a split family while I did research in a different state
  • 3 deaths of grandparents
  • mulitple job changes
  • and......5 years of a PhD
And through all of this my hubby has been by my side. We fight and struggle, but we make it through. I could not be where I am today without him. He is my friend, my confidant, my comedian and my love. And while we can't celebrate like we would like (no sitter available), I know it will be special night regardless.

Happy Anniversary!
