Do you know what today is?
And do you know what that means?
That means I am not one of those men that forget their wives anniversaries.
That’s right, today is the 2nd anniversary with my beautiful, wonderful, amazing, smart, funny, awesome wife.
2 years ago we exchanged vows on the happiest day of our lives. And the past 2 years have been some of the best times of my life.
Mama Bean is the best wife I could have ever asked for.
She has supported me through a million different career changes, and school changes, and all the other flip-flop decisions I have made through all these years. My blog is a testament to this.
She has also moved with me to a city completely foreign to her, sight unseen.
She is someone I can share inside jokes with, and be a goof with.
She is someone I can go canoeing with, and put furniture together with, and build a garden with. And it doesn’t put any strain on our marriage.
She is someone I can watch sappy movies with, and cry in front of.
She is my wife and I love her. She is the woman I pledged to spend the rest of my life with and I’ve never once looked back on that decision with anything but happiness.
We’ve been together for almost 8 years, since June 2001. Which is pretty friggin amazing, especially since 3 of those years were long distance while she was in school in another country. Seriously, how did we do that? Probably because we love each other so much. 😉
I like to think I’m a pretty great husband, and I try hard to make sure I stay that way. I want to be a better husband. Every year I want to look back and think that I’m a better husband now than I was a year ago.
Soon I’m going to be a dad. A husband and a dad. I’m going to love my wife as much as I love bean (and the bean after.) 😉
Today is my anniversary. Two glorious years with a beautiful talented woman and I’m looking forward to many more.
Happy Anniversary Jo. I love you.
