Now we are six [Sep. 19th, 2005|05:35 am]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |lovedloved]

Six years ago today I walked out into the backyard of Ferrett's ancestral home. I was holding his hand and smiling. A collection of Bosworths, Lucases, Steinmetzes, and our friends smiled back at us. We walked down the stairs, faced each other, and pledged to spend our lives together.

We were ridiculously happy, buoyed by our amazement that we had found each other, grateful for the love and support of family and friends. We grinned and danced and held each other close. It was a perfect day.

In a few minutes Ferrett will get up and we will begin our sixth anniversary by taking a long walk together and watching the sun rise. Like many things in our married life, we did not imagine on our wedding day that taking a four-mile walk would eventually be one of the pleasures of our lives. We have grown and changed a lot over the years. Sometimes those growing pains were tough, but all of them were worth it.

Happy anniversary, me darlin'. 'Tis talk like a pirate day, and I'll be your sassy wench for as long as we both shall live. I love you.

Funny how the day to day turns into 6 years when you least expect it.....glad you both are still working on keeping your relationship going because that's how a lot seperate, both to busy to see each other and then oooppppssss it's been how many years?...I'm glad you two are growing closer instead of apart...that is rare, as well as you both know it.....glad to see some marragies have a chance to flourish with time....congratulations

Congratulations and may you have many many more. May you be updating this blog on your anniversary twenty years down the road from the nifty thought-transfer-o-phone where you don't even have to talk out loud, and you'll be able to edit from the inside of your eyelids.

Was wondering if it was you guys I saw in Tomo's last week ... having seen your wedding pictures, I'm still not sure. :) The child wanted a steaming plate of broccoli?

Congratulations! May you continue to grow together in joy.

Congrats to you both!! I know what you mean about things changing in unexpected ways, and in what seems to be such a relatively short period of time, too! I understand 'cause me 'n' me darlin' wife will be celebrating the same event for us in less than a week!

As I commented in your man's blog, when I get home I'll be sure to raise a glass to the east 'n' a bit north to you both.
