love is...six years of being married!
today marks our sixth wedding anniversary. it's a pretty monumental one as we just bought our first home together (we closed last friday!) and in packing i found a few photo albums from our wedding. one contained all of the rsvps that our friends sent back to us. we asked each to write a little something about what love is. we have a creative, interesting group of friends and family and looking through all of them made me laugh, made me cry.
my ultimate favorite was from my beautiful mother. love is sharing one vision for the future. this applies more and more every day. the more we've intertwined our lives through children, big purchases, heartache, and happiness, the more i believe this. i'm so grateful for this love that grows, expands, and shifts. the moments when we say "yes!" because we are aligned on our future are my moments of greatest fulfillment. here is to many more! and here is a song that forever reminds me of you my love.
some more of what love is...
• an action verb
• little white lies and big black magic
• your unfolding arms...
• the greatest blessing and our principal assignment
• unconditional. unselfish. do not give up EVER!
• smiles. clean air. stinky cheese. truth. cat naps. sleep.
• saying yes!!
