I don't tend to get very personal on this blog, but what I'm sharing today is part DIY and part personal story, so I figured I'll go with it. Last week I celebrated 500 days being married to my husband, Eric. We don't celebrate every tiny occasion, but I intended to do something thoughtful for our first 100 days, and that came and went so quickly, so the next best was to wait until 500 days. I cut out a little saying, trimmed it into a banner and presented it to Eric with joy & delight.
The amazing thing for me about being married to Eric is that he understands me to the core. He goes along with my celebratory ways as if it's something he's thought of too. It's such a gift to be so supported by your spouse. Sometimes I'll come up with an idea, like making something festive to toss on the top of a stack of pancakes, just on any ordinary day. I'll think about it for a bit, then get a tad sheepish about going through with the idea, but then I remember who I'm married to and I say to myself "Do it. He'll love it!" And he does! Together we are creative, optimistic and curious. Separately he is passionate, driven and minimal where I am a day-dreamer, a collector and one who loves to laugh. I often have my head up in the clouds and he soon follows, spouting off all of the possibilities our lives might hold. Life with him is one blissful, adventurous journey and if the first 500 days are any indication of where life might take us, we are going to be immensely blessed.
