Today is our one year wedding anniversary.
It’s interesting being in a second marriage in the later half of our lives.
I think that neither of us are delusional about being “in” love and it being the cure-all for life.
Loving someone is hard work.
Being “in” love and the fluttery feelings of a new relationship is the easy part.
We both lived a lifetime with somebody else, raising families, building careers, and experiencing heartbreak that nearly broke the both of us.
And yet, here we are in a world where just a few years ago we didn’t know the existence of the other.
I don’t believe that another completes me. I’m fully complete on my own.
However, I do believe in enhancement.
Thank you for choosing me to be your life partner on this adventure.
Happy Anniversary, baby.
