22 years is a loooonnnnng time

Twenty-two years ago today I married The Rockstar. That's a long time. A very long time. Especially considering that most people didn't think we would last more than 6 months. I don't blame them for thinking that...I only knew him for 3 days when he asked me to marry. And it was only 6 weeks later that we got married.


Don't get me wrong...it has not always been peaches and cream...some times it has been piss and vinegar. Marriage is hard....really hard sometimes. But sometimes it is so easy. So comforting. So loving. And so right.


I am quick to give up when things get hard or uncomfortable. Thank God The Rockstar is not. All the times I wanted to just give and walk away he simply would not have it.


We are empty nesters now and although I miss my kids living here, having so much time alone has made me fall even deeper in love with my Rockstar. Today I feel like such a lucky girl to be so in love with my husband and look forward to the next 22 years with him :)

Amazing! Now that I am *thinking* about actually getting married, it freaks me out. There are just so many stories of what doesn't work. Thanks for being a reminder that it does sometimes work out!

Happy Anniversary! That's really sweet. Reminds me of how my grandparents eloped after knowing each other for two weeks! As little kids, when we'd ask how long they were together before they married, the answer was always "long enough". :)
