In terms of years, sixteen doesn’t seem like much. However when you’re sixteen you think you know everything in world and merely want a chance to go out and show what you can do. Sixteen years of marriage is a lot different, it’s being older and wiser, it means you realize you don’t know everything and it takes compromise and understanding and accepting things will not always be perfect or right. Also conversations, lots of conversations.
Every year marks the longest I’ve been in a romantic relationship in my life and I think back to what I wrote when I was moving here
vic and i are not living in a fairy tale and we know that. things are not going to be peachy and perfect all the time.
Perfect is not a word I would use to describe our journey – fun and interesting and amazing and frightening and exhilarating and charming are much better words to mark our years together. Thank you Victoria for sharing it with me and looking forward to adding more descriptive adjectives along the way.
