Happiness is Here

Today is the day, I married my sweetheart of 13 years. We drove away to this beautiful house in the desert and had ourselves one amazing party, where at least 10 different things didn't go as planned. Life has been a lot like that ever since. Despite best intentions and all the determination in the world, so much in the years that have followed have not gone as we planned. But just as it all worked out in the end that day, with a beautiful sunset, the champagne flowing and lots of laughter and dancing, I'm pretty confident we are going to realize every dream we've ever set out to make together. There's so much to be grateful for already. Because happiness is already here.

so so sweet! Congratulations on your anniversary!

You're so right about things not going to plan... just three months after we were married, my husbands father passed away. Or lives have been very different since then taking care of my mother-in-law, but I suppose that I how life goes. I keep saying, "it's in the valleys we grow" :)
