Fifteen years ago today I married my best friend. We stood up in front of all our family and friends and vowed to a lot of very improbable things. To say that we had no idea what we were getting into would be an understatement.
We've been married for fifteen years but we've been partners in crime for almost 18. We've had quite a few adventures in that time. A couple of really great kids. A couple of dogs and a few cats. We've bought a house and built another one. We've seen most of our friends get married and have their own kids. We've lost family members and a few friends. We've had some health scares and we've come close to splitting a couple of times. There's been more than a few times when I've felt like it was the two of us against the world. And we've travelled probably a million miles on road trips.
The Captain drives a tow boat for 28 days at a time and even though he's the one on a boat, I'm the one left adrift. You see, he is my home. It doesn't matter where we are as long as we are together we are home. And when he is not at home neither am I.
So Happy Anniversary to my Captain, my best friend, and my partner for life. I could not be me without you.
