14 Years Ago...

Exactly 14 years ago, I walked into a church with my about-to-be-husband and said “I do.” Of course, I was in a hurry, so I forgot to read the fine print, otherwise I would have realized that I was actually saying “I do… agree to move with you and your four kids to some random country where I have no friends and I don’t speak the language and oh, by the way, on our anniversary you’ll likely be too busy with the President’s security detail to come home in time for dinner.”

Oh, well. I would’ve married him anyway. Plus which, he gave me an awesome anniversary present. So who cares if I have to eat his share of the cake? I still maintain that I married quite well.

Happy Anniversary!! Getting to 14 years is no small feat. Sorry the actual day is not filled with parades and fireworks, but you are in it for the long haul; and there will be parades and fireworks.
Married 16 years next month.

So glad that someone else gets to share in the "sorry I won't be around for another special event" glory.

Happy Anniversary.

Sorry he missed it. I totally know what it is like to move to a new country with no friends... It will get better... Hang in there!

Please. Write your own stuff.
