so today . . . is our wedding anniversary.
before i write my blog each day, i take a little time to read the blogs i follow. most of those are photography blogs, and most of those feature wedding photos. wedding photography today is very different from what it was 30 years ago. today's photos show a lot more of the personalities of the bride and groom. ours mostly show people posing with smiles on their faces. but that's ok, because it was a happy day for us!
we got married when we were really young--probably too young to be making such an important decision!
we had no idea what we were doing, but we knew we wanted to do it together. and we have . . .we have been lucky enough to have a lot of people in our lives who love us,
but there have still been many times when all we've had is each other (yes, that is rollie singing to me!)
it hasn't always been easy, because life isn't easy. but we are always there for each other.
there is no doubt in my mind that rollie has my back--always. and i have his.
we are each other's best friend, the first one we want to tell stuff to, the one we go to when life gets us down, and always the one who gets the first phone call and text message when we get a new phone!a wedding is just the beginning, and we had a beautiful wedding (thank you mom and dad!!) but our life together has been amazing! we've grown up, we've learned what it takes to get along, we've talked and laughed and cried. we've moved half way across the country, and then back again. we've raised an incredible daughter together. we've watched our hair turn gray and wrinkles start to form (although one of us is pretty good at hiding it!) we've paid bills and kept doctor appointments and sat in hospital rooms, waiting . . .
and still we go on. together. always.
