10 years ago, we said “I do.” He was 25 and I was 23. We had been together for 4 years and had been living together for 2. We said “I love you” to each other two months into our relationship and never looked back. When you know, you know.
Our wedding was beautiful and our reception was an amazing celebration with 198 of our closest friend and family. We laughed, ate, danced- we had the time of our lives. It was everything I wanted to my wedding to be and more. I was lucky enough not to be nervous and I enjoyed every single minute of that day.
Now here we are a decade later. We’ve moved 3 times, lost 3 pregnancies, gained 3 animals and had 2 kids. We’ve fought and each spent a night or ten on the couch. We’ve cried over losses and changes. But we’ve smiled and laughed a million times more. We’ve built a life together with hard work, respect and love. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been so, so worth it.
If he asked again, I’d still say “yes.”
