15 Years ago today I married Triple S.
Actually we didn't get married for another 15 days but that's a story for another day.
Today is the day I wore the dress and we said romantic stuff while everyone watched so we will count it as our anniversary.
I remember counting the days till our first anniversary because then we would just be regular married people. Regular. Normal. Married. People. Not newlyweds.
That was what I wanted.
More than anything I wanted my regular life to start.
On our first anniversary Triple S and I went to a lovely French restaurant. We ate escargot and dined by candlelight. It was romantic and wonderful. Then we went home and ate frozen, year old, cake.
Is that still a thing? It really shouldn't be. that cake was GROSS! But we had a few bites. Enough to ensure tradition was followed before throwing it away.
I remember thinking regular life was going to start now. My normal life.
I'm not sure what I thought that meant. Maybe eating breakfast together while solving a crossword puzzle? Maybe going on road trips to see the world's biggest ball of twine?
Clearly I had no frame of reference. That was why I wanted it so badly.
It's been 15 years. A few moves, a bunch of job changes, some adorable kids and too many ridiculous things to list. Nothing has been 'normal' or 'regular' and that has been the best part.
What Scott (Triple S) has taught me is that it really doesn't matter what you are doing and where you are but who you are with.
I'll gladly spend the next 15 years with him. Probably more than that if I'm lucky.
So thanks for the life lesson and everything else. <3<3<3 Happy Anniversary husband of mine!
