12th Anniversary

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
It's our 12th Wedding Anniversary

I can honestly say if I'd known then, what I know now, I'd have been even happier at our wedding. My love for him has only grown deeper over the years, and I continue to marvel at the blessing he is in my life.

To anyone waiting to find a soul mate, I will share my gram's advice. To have faith, and in the mean time to really live your life, pursue your interests. To not sit waiting for that someone to walk into your life.

I had made mistakes, quit dating for almost 10 years rather than make more mistakes and was becoming bitter. But then I was ready to open up and try again. The right person was there when I was ready, someone I'd have never met if I hadn't been pursuing my interests in life. And I believe that the right person is the right person - no matter the age difference (I am almost 14 years older).

You can call it fate or luck, but we both know that God brought us together - we were living on opposite coasts, in very different careers, are of rather different ages, yet we are perfect for each other.

I am so glad I didn't become so bitter that I quit believing I could find the right person for me, and I am so very glad I opened up my heart one more time.

Thank you everyone. Dh surprised me (totally!) with a cake from our favorite "special times" bakery. It was so unusual (shaped like a gift box with a fabric ribbon around it) that I had him take a photo of it which I'll post later. And he bought me a present (wasn't supposed to, we did a joint purchase present to us already) of lots of sci-fi and fantasy books ""

We are going out for our anniversary dinner later in the week - Italian at a very, very well reviewed place we hadn't tried yet. I'll post a review
