Eight years ago this handsome fella and I tied the knot for time and all eternity. You know, on November 1st, 2012, I knew I was making a good decision by marrying Craig. But I’ve got to say, eight years later, I can honestly say I had no idea just how smart I was to be taking that big step in life. (imagine what I’ll be saying in 8 more years!) Wife-life with Craig is beyond words. I am a hopeless romantic and I also over romanticize things in life – such as marriage. But honestly, Craig’s made all of my dreams come true and then some. I’m not sure how I lucked out so much with him, but I am thankful for that blessing every. single. day.
Our marriage is a really, really good one. Definitely not perfect. Far from perfect. But we try really hard to continually work on it. We are happy together. We have made a really good life for ourselves and it continues to get better. We have been through a lot. Some days are plain ol’ awful. Some days hurt. Some days we communicate terribly and there is tension. But I’m so thrilled to say that most of the time, we are living our own little kind of fairy tale. We have three beautiful children together and we love them both so, so much. Our adventure as parents is our greatest joy. We have some similar interests and some vastly different interests, but we take the time to listen to, and support each other in all of their interests. We get better every day at understanding one another and how best to help and support one another. We laugh a lot. I feel especially lucky to be married to Craig because of the humor. He’s the funniest person I’ve ever met and he has me rolling more often than not. We have incredible conversations. We talk about anything and everything and its thought provoking, energizing, therapeutic and so bonding.
I love Craig with all my heart and I’m not kidding in the least when I say I’m honored to be married to him. Its been eight amazing years and my love for him only grows with each day.
