A Decade

Ten years, a decade in time, only 1 tenth of a century, but yes it is still something worth celebrating. Ten years ago I wed the love of my life and started an adventure of a lifetime. Over the years we have shared many beautiful memories, gone through challenges, shared hopes dreams, goals, given life to three wonderful children, and many, many other adventures. And through it all we have stood by each other. He was always by my side giving me loving support and I am happy to return the same to him. We have each changed and grown so much in the years and yet deep down he is still the same sweet boy I chased after. Always loving, accepting, forgiving and generous. A wonderful way to spend a decade I think.

I look around at our home and at our kids and even at myself and see how the years have passed. My kids are older, in school, walking, riding bikes, getting older and growing up. Our house had been renovated a bit to accommodate our growing family and after ten years it finally feels like OUR home. I see time in myself,  fine lines and weight in places it was not ten years ago. My body is different after the birth of our beautiful children and my loving husband still appreciates me. Yes time has gone by, but the amazing thing is when I look at him, when I look at us, I still see the same two young kids in love. The same ones who stood together on that day with all the hopes and dreams of a happy life together. They were meant for each other, they found each other, and they couldn’t wait to start their lives together as husband and wife. And today after all the years and things we’ve been through I still feel the same. Excited to start my life together, to see what is next for us, to witness love grow stronger for each other and our children.

Yes the years have gone by, but like a sappy card, my love still remains and it is stronger then ever. It really is true. huh WOW. I am honestly looking forward to the next 10 years, to see what the next decade has in store…… A graduate, a teenager and maybe a deck and new garage by then ; )  Hey a women’s allowed to dream right? LOL  All jesting aside, I could not have asked for more. I am very fortunate and look back on the last ten years with great fondness.

Happy 10th Anniversary BAY!
