This week’s TILT belongs solely to my fantastic husband. Today is our wedding anniversary and we’ve been ‘hitched’ for five years now. Five years… wow. This is coming from the same girl who was never going to get married… when you meet the right one, everything changes and becomes a possibility.
Like most other wives, I’m incredibly thankful to be married–in fact, I love being married. I still get a bit of a giddy thrill when post comes to us addressed as Mr. and Mrs. Even the bills!
N has done so much for me and been there for me in so many more ways than anyone else. I couldn’t comprehend my life without him; he is absolutely my best friend. He knows me better than I do, and sometimes that’s insanely weird. He knows when I have a headache without me having to tell him. He knows when I just can’t bear the thought of dealing with dinner/dishes and orders chinese instead. He knows when I just need a nap. He knows how to make me feel ok again, even when I’m feeling my lowest. Perhaps he’s magical. I’m not sure, really–but he’s certainly all mine.
We’ve had our rough days/weeks/months, goodness knows. But we got through them and we’re a million times better for those tought times. Those times make or break a couple and they’ve certainly made us.
So this week, I’m entirely thankful for my marriage and the strength it gives me to get out of bed some mornings, to get through the day and to come home to bliss.
