March 4 will always be my favorite day. Not because it was smooth—it was actually quite flawed.
But when we left the venue together, I’d never felt more free. It set in that I get to spend the rest of my life with my favorite person, being fully myself.
We may not have felt close that day. And we’d probably appreciate our honeymoon so much more if we could do it over again now. I’m not sure what I thought marriage would be like. I had a lot of opinions about what a good marriage is, and none of them looked like this.
But in a weird way, all of my opinions looked like this. Our marriage is more than I could imagine. It’s funny how time reveals more than you could ever learn about marriage while also doing nothing at all.
Here’s a little place to look back, no matter how much time passes. Here’s to us.
