Sixteen years ago...

I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, all the days of our lives.   When we spoke those words sixteen years ago, we were young and naive and madly in love; I was sure there was no way I could love my new husband any more. 
Sixteen years later I know this to be false.   Prior to this past year, we have definitely had our share of difficult times, but this past year  has certainly put what we spoke into hard reality. 

It hasn't been easy, but we did it and we're still doing it and we're stronger now because of it. I can honestly say I love my husband more today than I did yesterday and I'm sure I will love him more tomorrow than I do today.  There is no one I would rather have by my side as I go through the good, bad and ugly of this wild and precious life. Thank you Vic for being you, I love you. Happy anniversary! Xo
Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
