Six Months Ago…

It’s hard to believe, but this Saturday marks our six-month anniversary. Though the time has gone by so quickly, it’s amazing to think about just how much has changed since that beautiful day in June when we said “ I do.” From going back to school to my looming job loss, it’s been a wild and emotional ride, but also a great one, with new opportunities and an entire lifetime of adventures still ahead.

Surveys show that many people are now forgoing marriage in favor of domestic partnership, and that’s just great for those who feel that way. But not me. Being married to my dearest friend has been the most wonderful experience of my entire life, filled with comfort, security, and hope in the face of life’s uncertainties. No matter what happens, I know Stephen will always be there at the end of each day, as six months turns into six years, and, if we’re so blessed, maybe even six decades.

Happy anniversary, love! I am one lucky girl.


What are your thoughts about domestic partnership vs. marriage?

  1. YAY! I told pete the 6 months, 6 years, 6 decades thing and he laughed. He said "You really think I'm making it to my 80s - I've had two grandpas drop dead in their 70s. Sorry lady."

    How romantic.

  2. Congratulations! Marriage really does change things, so I wouldn't have gone any other route - it's so comforting to have a built-in support system, and though I can't put my finger on it, it really does feel different that living together/being engaged. Here's to six more decades!
