Engaged

We interrupt this tour of Christmases past to remember December 8th, 2000. What a night. The night I got engaged! Seems like something worth noting, a decade of commitment...this June we'll celebrate ten years of marriage.

I wrote the story of how it happened here.

And wrote about our time together here.

What amazes me most is how long ten years sounds...but how short it has felt. How quickly the time passes, how easy it will be to spend ten more years together. And ten after that. And God willing, ten more and more and more and more...

And by easy, I don't really mean easy. Because sheesh, being married is work. But work that is worth it.

So worth it.


Our first Halloween together, we were engaged six weeks later.
 A perfect match.

Aw that is sweet! I remember the night we got engaged vividly too! I agree about marriage being work that is so worth it.

HAHAHAHA! That photo is hysterical!

I alas don't have an engagement story. We just talked about it, and agreed on a date. Yeesh. We're so pragmatic (which is fancy way of saying we are unromantic).

PS -- My 8 yo son says you "certainly look creepy." I think he means it as a compliment.

Oh, so sweet! I know what you mean--marriage IS work, but also strangely easy and so wonderful in so many ways...
