As Ever (Three Years)

Three years ago today I married my best friend.

We had no idea what the next three years would have in store for us. I certainly never thought that we'd have our second child on the way at this point. I never anticipated we'd be as broke as we are these days. Never would've considered that Roy would be willingly sleeping on the floor so I could be comfortable at night, or that we'd have no idea where we might be living in the next two months, or that we both would have recently made it through the crippling darkness of depression.

This is our life. And it ain't perfect. Much like our wedding, we've had to make do with what we have, and to most people, it's probably not all that spectacular.

But this is our life. It's a life that I love, because we've built it together and we've made it strong and solid and real. I don't think two people could have been happier than we have been.

Happy anniversary, my love. You make it all okay.

So this is what happiness feels like...
