Happy Beginings...

I love beginning something: It's fresh, it's exciting, it's new.... there are so many possibilities at hand, so many different journeys to embark on. To start the journey of being married to the person who chose you and taught you all about a crazy little thing called love is beyond exhilarating. I always thought my wedding day would be the best day of my life (and don't get me wrong--it was everything I ever dreamed of and so much more), but I never could have fathomed the possibility that the days AFTER the wedding (the 'daily grind') could be even more glorious. Why? Because everything is so real, so tangible, so lasting, and so good.

Some people say when you fall in love, there is a spark that ignites a fire. Personally, I felt that was all a load of crap. "You choose to love," I would say, "You make a logical, cognizant decision, and then you commit. It's simple. It's choice." Fear of getting hurt makes us say really foolish things that appear so wise.  When a spark occurred, my instinct was to grab a bowl and hinder a growing flame...fortunately, the spark had a cause, and the cause had a heart, and the heart had a spirit, and that spirit had a lighter, and that lighter drew close to me, and taught me how to be ablaze.

Trust. Fall. Catch. Love. Glow.

So we let that happen....

On March 15th, 2013 at approximately 4:30 pm, I married my best friend. I married the one who taught me how to be in love. I married the person who surpassed my dreams: The person who showed me the shades of yellow I'd not even tapped into yet. Oh, what an adventure it has been. The best part? It's just the beginning.

And as long as there in breath in my lungs, I will never stop loving him. Because now? He is a part of me.

We are an 'us,' and I am a 'his' and he is a 'mine.'
