I do. He’s the perfect man for me, and I love and admire him to no end. I’m so thankful our paths crossed, so thankful he wanted to marry this crazy girl, so thankful we will always have each other to love, to rely on, and to partner in crime with when we go on our wild adventures…
Tonight I find myself not being able to sleep… We have been married for a year, and we’re currently planning a second wedding for a big chunk of family who couldn’t attend the first one. The event will take place in another country, and I’m finding long distance planning to be a b!tch, being the control freak that I am. We are investing a lot of time, money and energy in this, and I’ll admit it, sometimes (more than I’d like to admit), it gets the best of me and makes me grumpy and insomniac.
But today I’m deciding not to be that person. I’m deciding to focus all of my energy on the fact that we’re doing this to celebrate that we found each other in a world of uncertainties, that we love each other no matter the cost, no matter the circumstance, no matter the place, time, or obstacle. We’re doing this to tell the world that we’re stronger together than as individuals, that we can take on anything, that the world is our playground and we are here to play. I’ll focus on the important stuff, the REAL stuff. Who cares if I can’t have the flowers I want? or if my favorite venue is already booked?, or if we have horrible weather that day? The important thing is that we love each other. That’s what this whole thing is about anyways, isn’t it?
I love my husband to death. He takes care of me, he understands me, he knows how I like my coffee, he makes me feel pretty, he doesn’t think I’m crazy because I sometimes still sleep with my stuffed elephant, he makes me laugh, he always makes sure our fridge is stocked with my favorite soda, and most importantly, he’s always there giving me tons of love, in all shapes and forms. He also drools on my pillow, has a weird two colored eye and puts waaaaay too much grated parmesan on his food. But I wouldn’t take him any other way
