I love this picture. Happy Anniversary! We also celebrated 25 years a few months ago.


Happy anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! Thank you for sharing Proverbs 31, which I think needs to go on my wall somewhere, as something to aspire to and hope for. What a powerful statement of calm, centered, faithful adulthood.

If you haven't met Madeleine L'Engle's "Two Part-Invention," I suspect you might enjoy it. It's about her marriage to her husband Hugh (from their meeting as young theater people, to his eventual death from cancer in his seventies).

I first read it years ago, when I was in grad school -- surrounded by family and by friends who became family, but no glimmer of light yet that I could see along any path that might lead to a family of my own. (It turned out that there was an old friend beginning to walk that path with me, but neither of us knew it for a few years longer.)

I finished the book and literally put it down and cried, because THAT was what I hoped for. Even the sad parts, because they came from the beautiful and long interweaving of good lives.

Wishing you a rich and beautiful next 25!

Happy Anniversary! I am already planning multiple celebrations for our Silver Wedding anniversary next year! One with friends in Brazil in July and another here in the U.S. I don't know whether we'll be able to go somewhere really special to celebrate, but I hope we can! I love what you wrote about being married. I think I had a pretty good idea of what it would be like, I just didn't anticipate that we'd fight quite a bit (the longer we're together, the more, it seems!), and hurt each other's feelings, and still be well and happy together. I hope you will have much more than 25 more years together!

Happy happy anniversary! Your bridal self looks like Emma Stone. I'm sure people tell you that all the time. :)
