Five years ago I was able to marry my best friend! It was a perfect day and we were lovingly surrounded by our family and closest friends as they stood with us to share in the celebration of two lives becoming one.
It was a perfect day! I have such a difficult time expressing all the feelings I had – the excitement of getting married to the man who was and remains my best friend, the feelings of love from everyone there, the support of our wonderful families, the fun of seeing our guests dancing past midnight. It was amazing. And now, five years later, I’m still grateful to be married to Scotty. Our marriage and love for one another has grown. We’ve weathered a few storms, enjoyed some adventures, shared the mundane details of life, learned that marriage is beautiful and complex, and loved one another well. Happy anniversary Scotty – here’s to many many more!
